    Pros

    -Interesting working in pay-tv industry
    -free tv for employees including premium channels
    -work is meaningful and challenging
    -great co-workers who all work hard and pull weight
    -Excellent new CEO who is implementing initiatives to improve the Dish employee experience
    -Very nice campus for headquarters
    -some tuition reimbursement
    -401k matching
    -profit sharing

    Cons

    -Reputation for low pay/benefits
    -only 2 weeks vacation for first 5 years!, then 3 weeks...
    -High employee turnover
    -Not a good place to work if you're not a hard worker
    -No teleworking

    Advice to Management

    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.

    Installing TV is more than just labor.

    Pros

    Not spending the day in the same building all day

    Cons

    Being forced to sell pointless accessories and junk to customer when installing TV service, being treated like you don't have a say in your work when management judges you based on performance related stats generated by a computer. not being eligible for promotion for the smallest details such as forgetting to put a location sticker on a remote control that serves no purpose. Not having a life outside of work due to an average of 13hr shifts..

    Advice to Management

    don't be so greedy, think of other peoples lives.. especially the ones who work for you.
