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

Pros

The work is varied and you're given the independence to be out working on your own without constant supervision. You'll get to meet lots of different people and I learned quite a bit from it. Plenty of overtime. Holiday pay and bonuses a nice perk.

Cons

The hours are unpredictable. You may be out until midnight or you may be home by 7, but I hardly ever get clocked out without overtime. The company has started moving more towards a sales focus for technicians too. Crawl spaces and dirty homes. Getting promoted is dependent on maintaining a flawless job quality level. If you have a strict quality assurance guy, that means no promotions.

Advice to Management

Management at the local office has been wonderful. Higher up management hasn't caused me any problems, so I guess keep on not causing problems.

    I have been working at DISH full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people there are great, there is a wide range of personalities that makes everyday interesting. Everyone has something to contribute and that can make for different opinions at any given time. I like coming to work every day.

    Cons

    I wish I made more money. I wish DISH didn't reward/promote employees based on who they know, or who their manager is. There is a sense of nepotism in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees based on what they have accomplished and set a standard in the industry that DISH takes care of its employees, not just its friends.
