    I have been working at DISH full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've honestly dealt with a great team during my time here. Bosses make your experience and mine has been with the company a long time that he is one of the most knowledgeable people in our department.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to jump through too many hoops to get anything you need to do your job. Just seems the company is too devided and not looking to a common goal because of certain policies.

    Advice to Management

    I haven't had any issues with our management. They provide great feedback in my opinion.

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to work hard for less pay and benefits. Something the executive management prides itself on explaining every chance they get. Not everyone is cut out to be a DISH employee.

    Cons

    Travel - all out of pocket except for airfare. Expected to travel during personal hours. Up to two weeks for reimbursement. No company credit cards, low per meal allowable expense limits, mediocre hotels. 4 or more traveling together - be prepared to share a room with someone.

    Insurance - $5k out of pocket before benefits kick in, then 30% until max OOP

    Hours micromanaged via "badge report", even for salaried employees.

    Performance review results are massaged by executive management, with minimal correlation to actual job performance or salary adjustments.
    HR shrugs and says "That's the way it is."

    Advice to Management

    Watch out if Amazon comes to town. It'll make the current 40+% annual attrition rate seem trivial.

    Pros

    Dish is truly a great place to work. Management works with you to enhance your strengths and help strengthen your developmental opportunities. The expectations of performance is high, and the company supports you to be and show your best. The employees are fun to work with and be around, but also a productive work environment. There is also the opportunity to move around within the company. You want to try something new? Transfer to a new team or department with ease!

    Cons

    Though you may be salaried, managers look at when you badge in and out of work to ensure you’re putting in the agreed upon hours a week. You want to eat lunch outside? Probably should make sure you’re hours are good.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take time to develop your team to help them reach their goals within the company.

    Renown company. Headquarters in Denver which is an attractive city. Offer relocation. Sling has a younger crowd and presents itself as a "start up".

    Cons

    Average benefits. No work from home. Must badge in and out before 9am every single day (even in case of snowstorm). No maternity leave. Low salaries/pay. Low employee recognition. No benefits, ever...

    Advice to Management

    Try harder to retain young talents. Show some flexibility and become more employee focused and understand that people have lives outside of work. Listen more to feedback from employees.
