    Cons

    low pay
    forced to subscribe to dish or be fired, even if you can't get service from your home
    draconian management techniques
    lowest morale I have ever seen
    being forced to work 16 hour days

    extreme micromanagement of every aspect of job

    Advice to Management

    treat your techs with some respect and trust instead of telling them how worthless and replaceable they are and maybe they'll care about the company.
