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

Pros

4 day work week. Good amount of paid time off and decent pay only if you've been with the company for a long time (impossible for new techs to promote). Free TV (but you are forced to have it; weird) If you like alchohol this job will make you drink (kind of cool i guess?)

Cons

Wow, where to begin. Management are scumbags and if they're not they're forced to be; customers are entitled dirt bags(some). The management from the top down is terrible. It's an extremely negative work environment. 90% plus installers absolutely hate their job and are constantly stressed out. There are 6 metrics that you are constantly held to but its almost impossible to balance all of them and some are completely out of your control. On top of that if you hit the metrics you can get a bonus but the incentive becomes mandatory and you will be targeted for termination if even one of the metrics doesn't meet their ridiculous requirements. Best example is this outrageous customer survey where a 0 is 10 and 1-9 is a fail. If your average isn't 9.6 or above you're considered to be doing something wrong. You are forced to sell stupid crap to people and are barely compensated for it. Systems are sold to customers incorrectly stating absurd things the system can do but actually cant all the time. The routing system is joke. You can't even use your own tools and the safety rules are absurd, nobody can follow the rules and get their job done. It's like hurry up but don't speed. The management will randomly show up to your job sites and harass you. No respect, people look down on you. Your hair might start to fall out.

Advice to Management

Mass suicide.

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

    Pros

    They will take anyone who can read, write and has a pulse.
    Long time employees are very dedicated and good at their job.
    If you are willing to stick it out for a few years you can make decent pay even with low education.

    Cons

    They will take anyone who can read, write and has a pulse.
    The company is very rigid yet expects their employees to be highly flexible.
    There is not enough of an incentive to keep quality people there more than a few months. Bottom line is that if you are quality, can reason and solve problems you will do well but keep looking. Until they roll out a plan to give incentive to those quality individuals they will keep leaving as soon as something better is available.

    Advice to Management

    Stop moving jobs overseas.
