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

Pros

Seems like a stable company for a moment. Weak internal initiatives, very little actual talent left.

Cons

Bad attitude towards employees. Dominance of bureaucratic rules over professionalism and creativeness. Small and dirty cubicles, outdated software systems. Promotional are given based on loyalty to the management and not based on the delivery.

Advice to Management

Do everything to retain your most talented employees. Ease bureaucratic way of management.

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

    Pros

    Decent wages. Coworkers are generally nice and helpful. Sufficient updates on business changes, which are frequent. Benefits are average, but not the worst I've seen. They try to do fun things like barbecues, singing contests, anniversary parties, etc, to improve morale.

    Cons

    Lack of schedule flexibility. Inability to schedule unpaid days off. Inadequate and infrequent feedback from management. Mandatory overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more coaching time so that supervisors can provide feedback with agents. You want us to meet certain metrics at the company. I believe that feedback is essential.
    The lack of flexibility with scheduling and occasional mandatory overtime makes work/life balance more difficult, especially those with families.

    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.
