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

Pros

Great growth opportunities for high performers. Great development opportunities for all employees. Diverse and engaged workforce. Exciting technology and services. Significant presence and rapid growth in Latin American markets.

Cons

Competitive industry with many new players trying to enter in both U.S. and Latin America. Some departmental separation and communication challenges, but significantly improved since current CEO started three years ago.

    I have been working at DIRECTV full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you want to be in the entertainment business, many positions at Directv offer exposure to television networks, content producers and sports leagues. The work/life balance was good and you get free tv. There are a lot of good people working at this company and it is as much a technology company as it is a television company. The current CEO was there for a year before I left and I was impressed by the positive cultural shifts he was able to make in such a short time.

    Cons

    There is a very top down approach and constant restructuring, which means layoffs of good people. It really depends on your boss if you have a good experience here. A large portion of the staff is hired on contract, which was bad for employee morale because they are not allowed the same privileges as the full employees.
