    Pros

    They provide you free TV.

    Cons

    DISH's COVID-19 response has been very telling about who they are and what they value. The first week they were allowed to bring back employees, they pounced. They put in place certain guidelines, one of which is requiring employees to answer a set of questions about whether they are experiencing symptoms or not. If an employee answers truthfully and self-reports themselves as experiencing certain symptoms, they are told they are too sick to enter the building but because it hasn't been shown they contracted COVID, they must take a day of PTO. While most companies are concerned about their employees well-being, DISH is only concerned about your time they paid for. Even though they put in place arrows on the wall, automatic doors on the bathrooms and closed down every other desk, it’s all for not when you discourage your employees from self-reporting and encourage them to bring their virus to your front door!

    I worked at DISH full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Probably the best team I've ever worked with. Free TV. Occasional training.

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible. Worst I've ever had. Corporate decisions don't have the employees' best interest in mind, leaving HR people to try selling reduced benefits as an improvement. The parental leave policy in non-existent. Attempts to build culture feel forced and don't extend much beyond offices outside of HQ.

    I have been working at DISH full-time

    Pros

    Good people; free TV; lots of good training and learning opportunities that people take advantage of to either jump to a new role in the company (easiest way to get a raise) or leave

    Cons

    Executives only listen to Data that supports their own opinions; it’s owned by a single individual so his decision trumps everyone and leadership believes in top down decision making; benefits are terrible - they pride themselves for not having raised healthcare premiums in years which only means they’ve cut benefits and pushed more onto you as an employee; and your pay is below market to begin with.

    I have been working at DISH full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Free tv, a paycheck, and a few good coworkers. If you need a job, come to Dish, just don’t stay any longer than you have to.

    Cons

    Benefits were already way too expensive, now rates are going up another $780 per year for a family of 3. Making out of pocket medical expenses almost $11,000 for the year before the insurance company starts to contribute their 70% portion (that’s right, 70%, not the standard 80%). Practically nothing as far as HSA contributions, so no help there.
