    Pros

    Dish is a great company to work for. As long as you are willing to work hard they are willing to help you to increase your knowledge of the company and products. During the summer you can get all of the overtime that you can work.

    Cons

    Tech position slows down in the winter. They try their best to keep everyone working.

    Pros

    Great place to learn about marketing. The Latino team is probably one of the best team in any industry targeting un acculturated Hispanics

    Cons

    Very strict with working hours
    Benefits are not the best in the market
    The industry is declining overall, however the company has other assets besides satellite tv

    Pros

    An excellent place to learn and apply knowledge, every new project it's a challenge, the stress has an important place on your days.

    Cons

    The stress has an important place on your days, it is important to learn to handle it, but at the end of the day I love what I do at Dish.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Base Camp is a new program to help employees learn about how DISH works. It is supported by our executive program, and is helping us learn how to make the employee and customer experience better. Incredibly innovative program.

    Cons

    I've been with the company for nearly 15 years, and seen incredible changes as it has evolved. At this point, I see few cons, and encourage management to keep looking at how to improve.

    Advice to Management

    As the workforce changes to millennials - we need to figure out how to stay true to our values, and embrace their needs. Our world is changing, and we can learn to change with it.

    Good comission plus nice incentives, sometimes you have to work overtime and that way you can make more money plus the comission

    Sometimes management doesn't communicate with us promptly when we the agents have questions

    I worked at DISH (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    4 day work week and free tv programming. All you pay for is the equipment fees. No experience needed to start.

    Cons

    Don't make plans for after work during your scheduled work days. Some days can be 7 hrs and others 12. All depends on how much volume there is for the day. Sometimes you can even drive to the office only to be sent home for lack of work. (Granted vineland, nj office was good at not keeping the same guy home more then once in a pay period)

    Advice to Management

    Stop reacting to the negatives. Keep focused on motivating.
