I worked at DIRECTV full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Plenty of opportunities too increase base pay monthly. Perks include free equipment and all the channels they offer including NFL Sunday Ticket and other sports premiums ( nearly $3,000 annually to purchase). Health benefits are also strong.

Cons

Difficult to move in any direction other than lateral. Pay not commiserate with education level and skill set of many employees which is most often not utilized or even recognized.

Advice to Management

Tap employees in all areas for ideas. Allow for easier more transparent methods for employees to share thoughts and ideas.

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

    Pros

    It's a fast paced environment that has opportunities for people who work hard to find them, take advantage of them and deliver results. Not all depts are created equal but you can navigate through them if you build your network properly. The company spends a great deal of resources on employee development however more employees need to take advantage of them to be successful.

    Cons

    Longer than normal hours and constant focus on work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing with the employee development.

    I have been working at DIRECTV full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, customers in my area are very nice, enjoy working outside

    Cons

    Very low pay. Auto router is a nightmare. Work orders are wrong about 2/3 of the time. Sales people constantly lying to make sales them dropping the mess in the techs lap.

    Advice to Management

    Just hire a bunch of illegals. You can't keep expecting to eat prime rib, when your only willing to pay for ground chuck!
