Cons

-Reputation for low pay/benefits

-High employee turnover
-Not a good place to work if you're not a hard worker

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize and do more to retain top talent. Many young employees working a few years and leaving for much more pay/benefits elsewhere. Cost of high employee turnover must outweigh whatever savings from keeping salaries low.

    I have been working at DISH full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers share the same pain

    Cons

    I have been with Dish over 10 years and have had 13 differant managers, 11 of them fired. WOW! My advice to all Dish employees is be a grain of rice in the big bag. If you move up, they use you and fire you. No future here for smart people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    The are plenty of opportunities for promotion. If you're willing to relocate, there is even more opportunity as positions open constantly nationwide. Great product to sell, lot of advantages over competition.

    Cons

    Very stressful. It's a big company, so you have to deal with incompetence daily. Our own processes make us difficult to work with, both internally and externally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to employee feedback. There have been positive changes recently.
