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

Pros

Plenty of overtime whether you want it or not. On your own after training period. All tools provided by the company. Two week training at a regional training center. Four day work weeks were the best.

Cons

Management that is looking to treat you like a child. Use of scare tactics is the norm. If you don't meet certain points requirements that were well above the minimum your manager would not receive his bonus and went after those employees. Horrible equipment, Call center employees and service techs were never on the same page. All 4 of us hired at one time were lied to about when to sign up for health benefits and missed the cut off date.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Jump in a vehicle and understand your equipment sounds great on paper but is terrible. Listen to employees more than management, they are the ones actually dealing with the issues the a plaguing your company.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn the field and the technologies involved.

    Cons

    Horrible culture and micromanagement. Way too much red tape to get anything done - have to get approvals from everyone and their mother to get access to software. IT is horrible in fixing any issues that may happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think it is amazing how much talent leaves this place. The team that I worked with is no longer employed there and it has only been a year! This company's HR costs must be through the roof. Hold onto your talent. Compensate them appropriately and make the environment a positive place to be.
