I have been working at DISH full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Dish gets a bad rap, but today it's not so bad. Good and honest coworkers, steady paycheck, paid training, all your equipment is provided, a lot of OT, performance based bonuses, promotions are available.

Cons

Shifts start early in the morning as a tech. Usually at the shop by 7am or 730am and don't get off till almost 6pm.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer better health plans. A lot of employees have families and frankly the current plans are some of the worst I've heard about.

    Pros

    Pay is good for these parts, especially if you stick with it for a few years. Pay increases quickly as you move up the ladder and bonuses are generous if you make your metrics. Dish is all about the metrics, so do well there and you will have a steady job and move up quickly.Workplace is nice, and my supervisors and managers have always treated my professionally. Benefits include health insurance, 401(k) and of course free TV.

    Cons

    Definitely have to stick the rules. Don't try to be crafty or sneaky or to bend the rules. Dish is a large corporation that rewards following the system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The way that reps are evaluated focused on quickly resolving customer issues. Right now, the emphasis is on "quick" is too much. Focusing on quantity over quality ends up increasing call volume.

    Pros

    Great schedule, room to grow and awesome development

    Cons

    Not being able to take a weeks vacation even if you have earned it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize the we are humans and not machines. A weeks vacation is well deserved as well as needed for people who have family out of town or state.
