    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Stable paycheck and set hourly shifts.

    Cons

    Lay-offs common, Production environment is aggressive and sometimes hostile to anyone who doesn't meet an arbitrary quota that very few ever succeed at accomplishing in the time constraints. 12 hour shifts with razor attention to detail, only a 30 minute lunch and no restroom breaks outside of 2 more 15 minute breaks isn't realistic. Favoritism makes any chance of promotion or advancement despite qualifications non-existent....

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic goals as opposed to aiming for the stars, falling short and retaliating against the lower level employees that are already struggling to make end meat.

      I worked at EchoStar full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      There are some decent co-workers and good people you might meet.

      Cons

      Very toxic environment. Favoritism and nepotism rules. If you are not one of the boys; forget it! No managerial support. Always throwing extra responsibility your way without any reward. Worked in this sector my whole life and by far the worst place to work. Finally resigned!

      Advice to Management

      Management is out for themselves and only themselves. Very eager to get promoted even though they are not worth their salt. No leadership, no support, no shaping or mentoring of subordinates. Incompetence rules. As long as they get promoted (almost every year during the last couple of years) they are careless.
