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

Pros

professional coworkers
good work/life balance. My office hours were usually 8-6.
financial support for continuing education
university outreach/recruiting is fun and sometimes involves travel
adhesion to industry best practices
large, diverse team with a lot of experience
DENVER! Working in Denver was a great experience. I miss that place.

Cons

Decisions were made in a bureaucratic way and so the company wasn't very agile. When I was there, our code wasn't pushed to production on a daily basis.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

create an environment an environment that is more conducive to innovation and try to minimize bureaucracy

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

    Pros

    good pay, full time hours, benefits. trainers are good and prepare us well for the job.

    Cons

    it's pay television customer service, so you'd best be prepared for some angry customers! Besides that, there's a strict policy about missing work and sick days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    employee assessments are sometimes unfair and don't into account complex subscriber issues.

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

    Pros

    Dish has been one of the best employers I ever had. I was hired without a lot of experience, but the starting pay was still the best I ever had. Training was complete and thorough. I spent a lot of time working with another senior tech before they let me do installs by myself.

    They provide techs with good equipment and the technical support we need. Dispatch is efficient but doesn't micromanage too much.

    Cons

    work hours are long. Usually 8am-7pm or even 830pm.
    benefits aren't great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give the people at the bottom of the ladder better benefits! We're the ones suffering the cold, heart, rain, and snow.
