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

Pros

the money was fine overtime loved it

Cons

moving up in the company sucked i moved from a one to a four in fourteen months but other were at level 1 after a year or two. transferring to another location sucks. they need to help people move up

Advice to Management

i was good at what i did and i needed to move to another state due to family emergency. i applied for a transfer in october but my manager didnt submit it until december. in feb i was told that everything was still fine with the transfer so i took a pdo and i went over there my son had broke his leg so i asked for fmla and it was approved about three weeks later i called my hr rep but to no avail kept calling him and nothing so i went to the office i wanted to transfer to and they told me to talk to my hr rep apparently they never approved the transfer and i was never aware of this. dish doesnt take care of one of there best why would they care about any tech. so i quit thanks dish

    I have been working at DISH full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is ok, depending on how many hours you have to work
    Benefits are good
    Good down to earth technicians
    Good bonuses
    Cheap satellite

    Cons

    Horrible manager, they expect way too much out of their employees yet do not give them the tools to do the jobs. Favoratism is very high in this company, if you don't brown nose constantly you will not be promoted. Bonus expectations are way to high to achieve. Promotion system is extremely flawed, nearly impossible without managers helping you and you screwing the rest of the techs outta jobs. They treat the techs like they're on salary and work them ridiculous hours. Rarely promote from within ranks

    Advice to Management

    Promote within the ranks, pay your managers more, hire enough techs to do the jobs, make bonuses more attainable, get your promotion system fixed, allow the techs to set their vans the way that is best for them, and be aware of your managers team destructive tendencies.

    I worked at DISH full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    dont have to take your home with you, you can meet new people and lastly, its a paycheck in a bad economy.

    Cons

    horrible hours , open 365 days a year, worked in customer service for several years, not too much room to move up and does not look that great on your resume for the future.
