Pros

New campus, access to latest technologies, growth and career advancement

Advice to Management

Senior leadership should be more visible and open to hearing ideas from line employees. Consider selecting employees for short term stretch assignments in different areas.

    Pros

    Of course day-to-day work culture can vary depending on the team/group/organization, specifically the Operations and Broadcast center have helpful/knowledgable and friendly personnel.
    Most holiday's that fall on weekends or Friday/Monday is typically only a half of day work prior.
    And of course all employees get complimentary home service with all channels.

    Cons

    The annual performance review process..but really who likes those anyway no matter what company you have to do them for.

    I worked at DIRECTV full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent money, Other than that there is not much positive and even the money stopped being as good because management kept taking away pay for things while still expecting us to do the work.

    Cons

    Do not value their employees
    The work conditions can be extremely rough
    They are continually dropping pay
    The hours can be extremely long
    You can be home and done for the day and they will call you back in to do a job. Essentially they expect you to be on call 24/7

    Advice to Management

    Organize, this will really lighten the load on your employees. Also learn to value experience.
