Current Employee - Manager in Denver, CO

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

Pros

Open atmosphere to innovate. Lots of challenges. Flexibility exists once you prove yourself. If you have a thirst for knowledge and can bring ideas you will be heard. Great open door policy. HR is dong its best to remove the old DISH culture. Things are significantly better with a top company growth attitude.

Cons

Not for the faint of heart. Need to be adaptable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less micromanagement

    Pros

    On the Job Training. Free Dish Network, Exposure to Video compression and uplink technoligy. 4x10 hr work weeks

    Cons

    Below industry wages. Slow advancement, Below average medical plans. No support from Sr. Management for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advise to management is to hire good employees and work to retain them by providing competitive wages, benefits, and advancement possibilities. If you treat your employees well they will respond w/ dedication to your service and customers. The feeling amongst employees is that management cares more about the equipment then them.

    Pros

    The company provides some employees with good levels of career opportunity.

    Cons

    Top management has little or no understanding or appreciation of the work being performed in some functional areas, and they don't have the neccessary skills to understand or appreciate it. Of course they think they know, and they won't accept that they really don't. Top management do not seem qualified to hold the positions they do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace top management.
