    I have been working at DIRECTV as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great amenities such as new gym, cafe and coffee shop. Very fun and modern place to work. Everyone is hard working but not too serious. All levels of management are approachable and show up to employee events. People are willing to help you. They have great benefits and work/life balance. Many employee resources.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems like things aren't getting done. High turn over.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at DIRECTV full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It is near Hollywood. It inspires people to be an actor, and pretend to listen to your work colleagues.

    Cons

    Very inefficient. Too many people who do not actually know much, and do not contribute technically. A culture in which people do not do basic research on Google before discussing a technical issue. Not everyone can contribute at a super star technical level- but a Linux administrator should understand Linux administration before commenting on a new feature of Linux- and so on....

    Advice to Management

    Benchmark against much better IT organization, and improve.
