    I have been working at Sling Media

    Pros

    Innovative products and smart, enthusiastic staff. Opportunity to learn an enormous amount. Generally fair-minded management.

    Cons

    Overly ambitious and poorly integrated array of products. Expectations for extremely high caliber of product without adequate resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While a visionary, smart group, reach too often extends grasp; projects are undertaken without proper staffing and organization. After being acquired by EchoStar, Sling cannot operate in the same nimble fashion it once could. With more experience, exec team would have at least anticipated this situation and planned accordingly.

    I have been working at Sling Media full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1. Cool technology/great product
    2. Flexible work hours and good work/life balance
    3. Really nice coworkers

    Cons

    1. Parent company that is culturally the total opposite of Sling
    2. Average benefits package

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need better communication with the Bangalore office - and we need to hire or train employees on project management skills to avoid production problems.
    Also need to make sure the benefits are equal to other companies

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
