Current Employee - Program Manager II in Englewood, CO

I have been working at EchoStar full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Love my atmosphere, coworkers, nature of my position. I've promoted up from absolute bottom to a corporate setting. Continually challenged and pushed to learn more constantly.

Cons

Pay and benefits are a definite bust. It seems to be common within the company to withold the best pay for individuals hired from outside the company instead of solid pay increases for people promoting from within.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Re-evaluate the pay level vs experience and focus on keeping qualified, experienced staff.

    Pros

    Depending on which team you work, there are places where you can learn a lot. overall nice as a stepping stone.
    Hard to get laid off, TV at work (of course)

    Cons

    minimum benefits and pay. no motivation to work.
    Pick any software development book and all things which are "donts" are done here.
