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

Pros

I 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 Company invests in growth and infrastructure, so its good that you get to work on the latest technology and not outdated ones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

Cons

1. 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 ManagementAdvice

1. 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..
