Pros

The internship provided great access to upper management and afforded me a real opportunity to make a difference in the company.

Cons

None for the internship, but heard a lot of complaints from full-time employees about how they didn't have nearly the visibility they had thought they would coming out of the internship.

Advice to Management

For the internship program, none. It's fantastic.

    Pros

    Build you up in the interview
    Build up the place as a place with opportunities

    Cons

    Director of Operation loves to curse out employees and berate employees in front of peers
    No respect from upper management
    Upper management would rather look at and nitpick the stuff that does not matter over the substance of the material
    Terrible mentors; when asking for program managers for help they will always con the person by saying yes meet with me at this time, but the time never comes. Claim to have an open door, but never give guidance
    Retaliation is accepted. Do not say anything negative about the Director when things are supposed to be confidential
    Ethics are terrible as one will be told a situation will not affect the employee, but about a week later a counseling will ensue for that exact same thing
    The place is too much about covering yourself than making a difference in the business.
    Do not try and give more as there will be haters at every corner to knock you down.

    Advice to Management

    Be more ethical and respectful
    Do not berate an employee in front of others
    Do not lie constantly to employees
    Go to business school to learn the basics of planning, controlling, leadership, and control.
    Learn ethics in the workplace
    Streamline the workforce; there are way too many people in administration and engineering who have no clue

    Pros

    I met some great people in the short time I was at Dish, nice technology, but the company is as cheap as they come. The benefits and PTO are a joke (seriously a joke, single person and my benefits were costing me $145 a month with a super high deductible and high co-pay) and the pay is horrendous, completely sub par for college educated people with experience.

    When the founder/owner is referred to internally as "cheapo Charlie" that should've been my first red flag. If you travel, they make you share hotel rooms with complete strangers! Ridiculous!

    The pay is in the bottom ten percent of the telecommunications industry and the turn over is very high. After taxes, health care and the forced 3% 401K contribution, unemployment pays more!

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are far, far below industry median. The company could care less about the turn over, they just replace you. No value in their employees

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people a liveable wage! So many people at Dish are living paycheck to paycheck! Come on Charlie, you're worth 8 Billion dollars, share the wealth a little, your people work hard for you!
