    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Can't really think of one positive

    Cons

    5 am morning meetings once a week, lack of integrity from the leadership, having a "no school policy" for employees (why wouldn't a company want their employee to extended their education, poor communication skills

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the "no school" policy. It's not cool to drop out of school.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Above average pay and benefits including complementary television service. Generous bonus and stock awards for those at the right level with sufficient tenure. Smart people willing to work hard.

    Cons

    Very formal, corporate environment with long hours - business attire four days a week. Frequent need to work weekends.

    Culture of politics and infighting. Employees who embrace and create conflict are rewarded ahead of those who work together.

    Lack of transparency in the promotion and review process - very little in the way of career development

    Innovation is at a standstill - company is leaning on Latin America business to drive growth while it treads water in the US and puts all profits into stock buybacks.

    Advice to Management

    CEO has tried to change the culture of Directv, but progress has been slow. This is a company in a rapidly changing industry that is trying hard to hold onto profits and fight change.
