    Dish Network races into internet of things world by buying Denver parking startup ParkiFi

    Satellite TV's Dish Network is entering the parking business with its purchase of Denver's internet of things startup ParkiFi. But the strategy driving this curious mashup, being announced Thursday, has little to do with parking cars or the future of satellite TV. It has everything to do with Dish's future as a wireless company.

    I have been working at DISH full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    * 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.

    Cons

    * 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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at DISH (Denver, CO) in April 2017.

    Interview

    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.
