    Pros

    great pay, you get your own desk, positive environment

    Cons

    fear of being let go,minimum 50 hours/week, the encouragement for overtime comes across as "do it or else.."

    Crazy busy, sometimes with true-north focus as a company, then again, sometimes not so much.

    I worked at DISH full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really great people come to work here, but they usually leave after they've been worked to death. Salaries are ok, but need to be re-evaluated against other industry telecom leaders.Benefits are decent, comparable to other industries/market. There is some schedule flexibility depending on what department you're in and your manager's mood for the week.

    Cons

    Far too many high level expectations and unreasonable deadlines without good leadership, communication, decent compensation, the right equipment and the wrong people in management. (Lording over and micro-managing others so they can cover their own tails, because they didn't do their due diligence.) Thank goodness the badging in/out process has changed (or at least I heard it had been). It isn't Ft.Knox for crying out loud. It's a consumer entertainment company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You hired someone based on their skill sets and abilities, test scores, etc. Let them do their jobs without micro-managing every little aspect of the project or event. Be prepared yourself, take initiative and communicate what you want, and don't change the rules of the game in mid-play, unless you talk it over as a team. Stopping and starting over is no fun and frustrates everybody, not just you.
