I have been working at DISH full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

DISH can in fact be a demeaning place to work. The company has high expectations, and does require accountability. However, if this appeals to you, the sky is the limit. For those willing to only put in the minimum

Cons

DISH moves fast and could improve communications. More time off would also be appreciated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to listen to employees. We are moving the right direction, but still have a ways to go. Improve time off.

    I have been working at DISH full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Challenging opportunties for everybody who wants to work hard.
    Moving towards cutting edge technologies like Bigdata after 10/15 years of relying on traditional technologies.

    Cons

    Horrible medical benefits that doesnot match with industry standard($2500 deductible).

    No flexibility in timing which wont work in IT.

    Got 2 times as "worst places to work" and management claimed that they improved it but employees still feel nothing improved(health benefits,working from home).

    Work from home option

    Interview process is very lineant which allows very bad resources to be part of the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please improve health benefits.

    Please provide flexibility in timing.

    Please make interview process more stringent to allow good people to be part of IT.

    If all the above is done DISH is the BEST PLACE TO WORK for 2014.

    I have been working at DISH full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I find the work to be very enjoyable. You get to meet so many interesting people. You get paid to drive and honestly installs are not all that hard to do. Ever since I got a new manager the job has been pretty great. Like others say your management really makes a difference. Im just glad im a remote tech.

    Cons

    I hate having to clean up installs of other techs, mostly sub contractors. Sometimes it can be stressful when you have a lot of jobs with a lot of drive time.
