Former Employee - Staff Accountant in Englewood, CO
Former Employee - Staff Accountant in Englewood, CO

I worked at DISH full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Paycheck, although not industry standard.
Covered parking if you get there early enough
Cafe onsite with good food

Cons

Lack of communciation, especially as one goes up the ladder. There are quite a few managers that are not willing to meet to resolve issues or find a more efficient way of handling tasks. Too many people that have made it up the ladder and are just waiting for retirement. The CEO sent out an email recently that stated changes were made for the better...that memo announced that VPs had become Sr. VPs, etc. In accounting, employees are expected to work 60+ hours a week with no compensation. Managers deny doctor's appointments and suggest they be made before 9 a.m. and after 4 p.m. or at lunch...but only between 11:30 and 1:00...not a lot of doctors that have appointments during those hours.

There are many employees that have a real attitude about their work and are either afraid to share what they know because they are afraid they will lose their job or will not speak at all because they are afraid they will be given something else to do.

Too much micromanagement...you hired employees for their knowledge, let them use it. The interview process is a joke...takes two months to finally get an interview. Have to "pass" the tests and assessments given...they should really look at some of the employees that were there prior to the assessments...don't think they would pass now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look up the ladder at some of the mid managers that do not have the "DISH attitude" as described by CEO Joe Clayton. There are some new managers that have the right attitude and ambition, but I wonder how long that will be before they lose that and just go with the flow and continually see a turnover.

    Pros

    fair contracting terms
    good contracting experience

    Cons

    weak processes and hence lack of predictibility

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    think strategic and stop focusing on what you think...think customer - means more market research and customer engagement. lesser of SVP and EVP lists and grids and more strategic and market defined goals.

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

    Pros

    Soo many new high level execs have come in with a key objective to make it a better work environment. Everyone is so focused, it's become a really good place to work very quickly. Yes they get reports on when employees come in and leave, but they use them to make sure employees aren't working too hard. Personally I love it, but I'm fairly new.

    One of the coolest things I've seen is that they let employees change groups once they feel like they've mastered their current position. Lots of employee training and growth potential.

    Cons

    Lots of new and young people but I'm not sure that's bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep Charlie out of the building.
