Good for early career growth

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at DISH full-time for more than a year

ProsI ve read a lot of bad reviews and I wonder why...I think it all just depends on your team and manager. Working in the IT department isnt as bad..
1. Opportunity to work on some major projects and make an impact
2. Great people around you always willing to help out
3. Open door policy - you can directly go one or two levels above you and talk about something if you have to..they will listen
4. Company invests in growth and infrastructure, so its good that you get to work on the latest technology and not outdated ones
5. Free satellite TV package with premium movie channels

Cons1. Pay is average, benefits are poor - there isnt much incentive to stay here long term
2. Company is quite rigid with work schedules, no flex hours or work from home policy
3. Sometimes, employees are just treated as material resources (especially by PMs who only care about getting their project done no matter what it takes)

Advice to Senior Management1. Give your best people incentive to stay long term (compensation, benfits, bonuses, etc.) otherwise they will leave
2. Be flexible as far as work hours are concerned, emphasis should be on getting the job done instead of completing 40 hours in a week..

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Management more worried about how to fire employees than develop them. Too much politics.

Customer Care Specialist (Current Employee)
Harlingen, TX

I have been working at DISH full-time for more than 8 years


Pros: Best paying job in the area. Cons: Management doesn't care unless you are one of their buddies, seems if you hang out with management after work, you get promoted better. Quality… Advice to Senior Management: Crack down on politics in the work place. Remember long term employees mean a lot in this world and nobody is perfect. When… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
