Mission: Our Mission is to connect people and things.
Our Vision is to change the way the world communicates.
Yesterday we launched Out at DISH, our newest employee resource group.
Out at DISH is an employee organization designed to support LGBTQ+ individuals and allies at all of our DISH sites across the country.
A huge thanks to Barry and his team for getting this group going. At DISH, everyone is welcome!
Watch DISH CEO Erik Carlson discuss the future of DISH and Sling on Bloomberg! Denver Startup Week was a huge success this year and we are always proud to attend.
We're DISH. We're the ones who pioneered the DVR and commercial-free TV. Colorado-born and family-owned, DISH has proudly served America since 1980. We make a point of listening to our customers and giving them what they want in an industry notorious for ignoring people. Of course, we're proud of our past accomplishments, but our true excitement lies in the future.
We're reimagining the way people watch TV with services like Sling and AirTV. We're redefining the boundaries of communication and connectivity too, with wireless spectrum and the Internet of Things. Nothing is out of our reach, and the opportunity to shape the future of entertainment and technology has never been more tangible.
So, let's roll up our sleeves and decide what the future looks like together. Get Started Here
DISH Cares is our corporate citizenship program that provides opportunities for our employees to grow while promoting community engagement and development through sustainable business practices. In 2016 alone, DISH Cares initiatives were responsible for saving over 9 million pounds of plastic foam and cardboard from landfills, and supplying over 30,000 hours of internet and TV services to disaster relief sites. See how we're working to better serve our people, our community, and our planet.
DISH supports the growth and success of women on a personal and professional level and seeks to sponsor events that enable them to achieve this goal. The DISH Women's Network is open to both men and women and provides an environment to foster relationships and professional growth through networking, education, and career-development. After only 2 years, this impressive organization already has over 1,000 active members.
I have been working at DISH full-time (More than 5 years)
* Opportunities abound for technical jobs - engineering, IT, product, QA.
* Company has formally (and publicly) stated new direction with road map towards future IoT endeavors.
* Management is very transparent about their goals and objectives and offer frequent updates through all team meetings and other communications.
* No layoffs to date despite the obvious decline in paid TV subscriptions, but this is endemic of the industry at large.
* Still a ways to go to shed negative legacy regarding employee trust, this primarily in the way agent call centers handled resources.
* Short on holidays and barely above avg. in benefits.
Advice to Management
Continue to work on your people skills since in today's environment, employees are not retained by telling them to work hard and if they don't like it, leave. You'll end up with sub-par talent and in no way will you have the best team as you strive to. To be fair, I believe management has for the most part "gotten the message" and are working to improve the company's image and make it a great place to work.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at DISH (Denver, CO) in April 2017.
I received a call from their own internal recruiter and she asked questions about my last position. After that I received a questionnaire to complete that covered math, reading and the internet. It was designed to be hard but should be a good indicator for quick problem solving.
