    I worked at DISH full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None even a former HR told me she had to leave cause if their horrible treatment of employees!!

    Cons

    Only lasted 1 yr and honestly one of the worst co Ive ever worked for. They have the highest employee turn over and for good reason; low pay, terrible benefits, managers that dont empower you, long hours. Also a good chunck of positions are contracted out so that Charlie Ergan, CEO can get even cheapor labor wages w/o paying any healthcare!!

    Advice to Management

    Hire the most qualified candidates and pay them accordingly and do ever thing to retain your smart and talented employees. You will actually benefit the co and save a ton of money by doin so.

    Pros

    The best part of DISH is that the company provides numerous opportunities for employees who are creative and eager to work hard to get ahead. This is partly because our culture rewards people who take ownership and risks to try new things, and partly because we do have high turnover in certain areas. If you're looking for a cushy corporate job with a nice expense account and great benefits, this isn't it (no doubt part of the turnover issue). If you're looking for a place where you can grow your career faster and try more interesting and innovative things than anywhere else, DISH could be a great fit for you.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the company is still rooted in something of a command-and-control mentality when it comes to things like monitoring employee's time and not being able to work from home. For some people, this feels like a lack of trust and forward-thinking from senior leaders. I see their point, but also feel like the restraints are part of the cost we pay to be given exceptional trust in other areas, like how we develop our careers.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of core hours, not because people don't want to work that time, but because it communicates a lack of trust and care for employees.

    I worked at DISH full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great training, Great Support, Good salary compensation for local markets In North Dakota, Fleet vehicles were ideal for road and weather conditions.

    Cons

    Must be ready to hit the floor running, if you are not you will struggle until you are up to speed. Bonus goals are weighted heavily on 100% satisfaction from your customer, a four out of five isn't going to get you what you need.

    Advice to Management

    Better Work /Life balance would have been a plus. I understand getting technicians to this market during the Oil Boom was next to impossible.
