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

Pros

Focus on the employee of late has been great. Good benefits and a strong commitment to doing things the right way.

Cons

A lot of old guard satellite and broadcast folk who are profoundly averse to change. The broadcast side struggles significantly with new technologies that do not fit in the broadcast genre. If it is a typical IT technology it gets mangled by the broadcast minds.

Advice to Management

If you are going to compete in the OTT space, hire the right skills to compete with Netflix, Amazon, Google, etc.
