    Pros

    Good people to work with. Management does care and are trying hard to make things better for everyone.

    Cons

    No work from home option.

    Advice to Management

    Let people do their work wherever and whenever they can - if this means easing up on the telecommuting, so be it.

    I worked at EchoStar full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Could get to work in less than an hour

    Cons

    stress level was high as if we were performing surgery. pay is not worth the stress

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees and reward them for putting up with this kinda stress

    I have been working at EchoStar full-time

    Pros

    Good people have worked here, and they quit so fast we don't know what's going on.

    Cons

    Bad people stay and are rewarded for their terrible attitudes - toxic environment and if you want to be happy - do not work here.

    Advice to Management

    Quit, Leave! Someone with a brain - read all the reviews (the ones that weren't fake "Love" because the CEO was unhappy about his approval rating). Bad things are going on and you know about it - so you are just as guilty.
