      Pros

      One good thing about fish is the employees working there

      Cons

      Upper Management does care about employees al they care about is looking good to the VP when twin the past it was positioned for the employees Comisión has been changed to make it harder on the Agents to make money with multiple metrics that off balance the others pretty much working for free No work life balance as well you are always expected to do overtime and if you don’t upper management let’s you know they aren’t happy about it You feel like you can’t go to HR because of retaliation from upper management Your constantly in fear of losing your job from tiers which is citation in sense of something goes wrong When I’m the past they would understand you make mistakes and work on it now it’s just a write up Employees don’t get valued the way they should be

      Pros

      - Nice salary & good benefits - HR people is always nice - Most people are very respectful

      Cons

      - Dish does not trust employees - Disorganized upper management - Being part of a minority definitely hinders your success here - You are expected to be always on time, it doesn't matter if there was a terrorist attack and the city is on chaos

      Very Good Workplace -- Overall

      Pros

      Merit-based advancement, Benefits that are geared toward performance, great culture, constantly-evolving initiatives and goals undertaken by the executive team that keep you agile.

      Cons

      All of the things that happen in a big company--decisions being recommended by direct management but needing to be approved by multiple tiers of upper management, with all of the bureaucracy, micromanagement, and risk-averse tacks that accompany it. How can a "Pro" of the company be that it moves quickly in new directions and keeps you agile, while also being burdened by a bureaucracy that makes it painfully slow to respond to certain situations (COVID, for example)? I can't explain it, but that's what it is.

      Pros

      FSM's (the managers) knew their stuff and were on call for questions even after hours. Thorough training. Decent pay with some commissions through sales. You make your own decisions on the job.

      Cons

      Upper management has insane goals for sales. You can hit your sales metrics with one house but you can also not get a sale for the whole week. Sales are not difficult but sales are reviewed for the area. If you sell like crazy but 2 or 3 other techs don't you will still have upper management breathing down YOUR neck.

      Great Place If You Are Yes Man

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      People in my immediate team were fun and great to work with.

      Cons

      They do not care about employees at all. The CEO once said in a meeting that people who are concerned about their benefits being reduced were just lazy employees. He didn't want those kind of people working at his company. He worked holidays and overtime to build his company so he expects his employees to do the same. As the owner of the company you made billions of dollars with all your extra work. As an employee you got nothing for working extra. They did do employee satisfaction surveys that they did not listen too. When the engineering department got the lowest satisfaction scores, they held a meeting. It wasn't to address our concerns, it was to tell us how to fill out the surveys correctly to get better scores. Talks about having the best employees but has some of the lowest pay and benefits in the industry. I participated in making hiring decisions, and every time we found someone amazing, I 100% knew they were not going to take a job from us. They were going to get better offers somewhere else. They have a forced company culture that is part of your yearly review. You have to write essays on how you meet their company culture. Does it matter that you got the job done and did an amazing job. Somewhat, but if you don't tow the line with the "Dish Way" and "CPAW" they don't want you. The "CPAW" - Curiosity, Pride, Adventure, Winning. By itself this looks good, and seems great, but not how dish interpreted it. Winning meant doing anything to get the job done on time even if every engineer said the deadline was ridiculous. This meant being pushed to work weekends and longer days. I agree with taking pride in your work, but the company never took pride in its employees. They tried too hire by paying rock bottom prices. I was always given exceptional reviews, but my pay was about $20000 less than industry average. Curiosity and adventure sound great but it never happened. Anyone who was creative was not allowed to be. Typically you heard, this is the way we did it in the past, so we will continue to do it this way. I saw some great innovative designs being shot down either because we always had ridiculous deadlines or it was just different and we always did things the same way. I knew people who quit because they were not allowed to use new technologies. Its funny that upper management talks about being the most innovative company, but when engineers actually tried something unique it was not allowed. There is so much more I could go on about, but just know in Denver it was known as the worst employer to work for. Don't believe me. Just google "Worst CEO to Work For". The owner was once put in a magazine article for being "Worst CEO to Work For".

      Pros

      Great first job in the industry, exposure to a lot of sides of the business (OTT, linear, and addressable space)

      Cons

      Poor compensation plans and benefits, upper management was very hands off when oversight was necessary

      Worst Leadership a company can have

      Pros

      Local office sets the climate. Upper management and HR destroy it.

      Cons

      Doesn't listen to its employees. CEO tries to much to be energetic but just doesn't have it. No diversity all older white males in a leadership position at the in home services dept. If it wasn't for local management I would have been gone a long time ago. The leadership programs consist of getting together as a team and accomplishing nothing.

      Company doesn't seem to be focused on their Satellite TV business, more focused on growing their Boost Brand

      Pros

      Company provides great training, and you will grow your salesman skills tremendously. Great opportunity to start a career.

      Cons

      This particular position requires sitting on the phones, without many breaks, not even between calls, which can be challenging. The work can be tough, and the pay, which is commission based, keeps getting worse every year. Upper management doesn't seem to care about fixing things which are not working, even it its being presented to them, the general mindset is of 'you gotta deal with it'. This is even when their database and computer systems crash or freeze. Overall, this is a sinking ship.
