"Watch Your Back - You May Find A Knife Strategically Placed"

Former Employee - IT Principal Analyst in El Segundo, CA
Former Employee - IT Principal Analyst in El Segundo, CA

I worked at DIRECTV full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I worked with some amazing people. All employees get free DiRECTV. The overall benefits were good.

Cons

I worked with some horrible people. Constantly shifting organizational structure, no real advancement benefits, Sr. management were the only ones being promoted, less than cost of living wage increases, horrible HR department. Although it is one company, the business units exist as separate entities, which makes it difficult to have any uniformity in procedures and processes.

Advice to Management

Value your employees. They are he ones who ultimately drive your success. Be fair and impartial. Just dint take the word of the manager blindly.
