    I have been working at EchoStar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology, ability to collaborate, excellent employees, good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Top leadership not innovative enough and unable to see what it means to compete in the industries in which they say they are competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to those in your company who have not worked for the same employer their whole lives. Embrace the now. Innovate, don't expect that the work will just keep coming to us.

    I worked at EchoStar full-time for more than a year

    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.
