EchoStar commits itself to acquiring the best and the brightest for full-time selection and our summer internship program is one of our most promising ways to transition into the full-time team. Internships primarily take place at headquarters in Englewood, Colorado; however, some students will have the opportunity to work at our other offices. Our program encourages both professional and personal development of the intern, while exploring intense training opportunities and various social activities!

The 12-week journey allows you to gain knowledge about the EchoStar’s role in the fast-paced technology industry, strengthen your teambuilding skills, and explore breathtaking Colorado. Some of our interns have specific value-based projects, while others will work on daily assignments with our teams. Interns will be exposed to all levels of employees, from recent graduates to the executive team.

Internship requirements differ from job type to another, but all candidates must provide proof of their eligibility to work in the United States and pass both a background check and drug screen. Internships are paid but do not include health benefits.

    I have been working at EchoStar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They are a decent company to work for

    Cons

    They don't seem to care that Utah has lots of places that are willing to pay more money than them.

    Advice to Management

    Consider putting more money into your Utah employees. It is a competitive market right now, you have lost people because your pay and benefits are less competitive.
