    I have been working at DISH full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been working here for long time, had a lot of supervisors and some were really good. I was happy with my team. I'm still excited for my job, but when I get asked to go to roundtable session with personnel, my comment are ignored.

    Cons

    Nothing really. My schedule is really good and I like my co workers and my supervisor is OK to me. I wish for more honest personnel. I wish for better insurance and more than 2 vacation days at a day.

    Advice to Management

    HR personnel need to look for positive not negative only. When I in group round table, I say about all the good things they do but the personnel ladies only care about negative lies. They write down all the really mean things, mostly of all of it gossip lies about there supervisors. Then I and two others make good comments. Guess what? Not writing it down. I ask this and they want to know where to do investigation. Short personnel lady is not someone I trust and very sneaky. You ask me and other 8 9 10 year employees what's wrong of course your getting gossip and lies! Let me tell you what's good so they can keep doing it and please write it down! They say these are reported to the bosses of the managers here we'll maybe write down some things good for a change!

    Pros

    Pay is good for what you do, managers treat you like a person, get to see new places and experience new things, you don't have to work 8 hours a day in blazing heat or freezing cold without a break, you get a chance to be independent and think for yourself

    Cons

    have to go into some not so nice houses with some not so nice people inside. and some not so nice doggies.

    Advice to Management

    listen to your techs. If the majority of the techs are unpleased with the way management are running things, maybe it ain't the techs fault. adapt and overcome.
