    I have been working at DISH full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Opportunities to move up
    -LEAD employee training program
    -Smart people
    -Free TV service for employees
    -Access to high level executives

    I've worked at DISH for about 4 years now, and have gotten multiple promotions. Hard work doesn't go unnoticed (at least on my team). A lot of your happiness (like at any job) will depend on your manager and the people you work with on a day to day basis. I've seen some teams that are somewhat dysfunctional, but luckily my team is great.

    Cons

    -Low pay compared to industry averages
    -Terrible benefits (health plan is really bad)
    -You only get 2 weeks of PDO (3 weeks after 5 years)
    -401k takes 5 years to vest
    -A lot of bureaucracy with little focus on ROI (the projects that turn into realities are just whatever the COO is interested in that particular day)
    -Outdated HQ with not enough bathrooms

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Do a better job of investing in and retaining employees. They've been saying that they want to improve benefits and salaries for a long time now, but nothing has changed.
    -Try to trim the bureaucracy and get more teams to work across departments rather than just keeping a silo approach

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Current Employee - Dish Network Installer
    Current Employee - Dish Network Installer

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

    Pros

    Most of the day I am my own boss but have management available if I need help. Great pay. Every day is different. Great bonus program. Positive feed back from management. Overtime available weekly. Three days off a week.

    Cons

    Can have difficult jobs. When you can't figure out how to do somthing it becomes very difficult to describe the problem although people are willing to help. Insurance can be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have had great management. Continue to help and support.
