Current Employee - Dish Network Installer in Knoxville, TN

I have been working at DISH full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

great pay if you jump through every single hoop and dont have bad luck with customers who call in bullcrap trouble calls on you.

Cons

if a customer damages or alters their system, if they disconnect something/get a new tv or if the equipment goes bad or any such thing like this... they will call dish.. dish will build a trouble call.. which gets your paycheck docked.. matters not at all if it was in ANY way your fault.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your employees right (not saying more, just saying right). Train CSR reps not to build bullcrap trouble calls just to avoid the service call fee fight with the customer. This simple step will stop HALF your turnover rate.

    Current Employee - I DO IT ALL in Hilliard, OH

    I have been working at DISH full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I really can not think of any pros to working for Dish unless you are under 30 and included in the directors circle of friends.

    Cons

    Dish doesn't want to pay for the knowledge of their employees. If a person has a Computer Science degree they will steal your knowledge on recordings then train it to others, but never pay you even a the salary you are worth. (unless you are under 30)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give up the playground bullying and put the people that deserve it in the positions deserved instead of your out of the office playmates!

    Pros

    its in Denver, loved living back in Denver

    Cons

    HR is out of control and use constructive criticism you give in reviews to your employees as weapons against employees

    Lack of accountability or performance measurement. Focus is on minutes in the building instead of results

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage HR and make them support the teams as opposed to working against them

    Stop being yes men to Charlie when his ideas are not the best corse
