I have been working at DISH full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

For the most part, Dish provides a challenging, fast paced and collaborative environment. There are many lifelong learning opportunities due to a large variety of projects and people involved (i.e. a variety of ethnic and age groups with a variety of skill sets). There is a feeling of excitement and anticipation as new employees are being hired and new projects are being considered (e.g. how are we going to use the broadband spectrum).

Cons

There is still some co-worker negativity and resistance to change, although this is changing with the addition of new employees/management. Some long time employees seem to have been pushed up into management without the necessary skill sets.

Advice to Management

Continue to work on rewarding and promoting based on performance. Review mid-level manager skill sets (e.g. ability to praise, encourage and enable). Continue to improve and promote teamwork (e.g. between business and IT). Continue your efforts in making Dish a desireable and fun place to work.

    I worked at DISH full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are good at Sales, you can make a decent salary.

    It's better than being Unemployed

    Cons

    Treated like a machine rather than a person.

    Constantly threatened with the possibility of losing your job

    Long hours, mandatory overtime, no paid holidays

    Frequent schedule changes

    If you have children, make sure there aren't any emergencies! You will receive an "Occurence" (essentially a write up) if you have to leave work early for a sick child, etc.

    If you have a bad week and don't meet your metrics they will actually deduct money from your pay

    Advice to Management

    Realize that you have actual living, breathing humans working for you, who have families that they would like to see more than once a week. Treat people with respect and empathy and it will go a long way. Employees that feel valued are more inclined to work harder and go the extra mile.

    I have been working at DISH full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    DISH appreciates and rewards talent and hard work. If you are the type of person that doesn't let obstacles get in your way and has a drive to succeed, you will succeed here. There are many opportunities to learn different areas of the business and people frequently move from department to department getting more experience. Experience is valued along with education. Fast paced and a lot of change mean you won't get bored. Job security and opportunity for advancement if you are hard working and willing to push yourself.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment can be challenging. Department silos exist and can be a hinderance to the smooth flow of information. Human resources hasn't always been employee friendly but that is beginning to change. Benefits and compensation could be better. The high deductible medical benefits are certainly not top of the line. Compensation is below average unless ou have a manager that knows how to push through the obstacles.

    Advice to Management

    Fair compensation should be a focus. We have continued to use the same performance appraisal and compensation process and unless you have a management team willing to fight for fair pay, you are likely to make less than industry average. Continue to communicate honestly. If you want your employees to put the customer first you must continue to put the employee first. The culture shift needs to continue, it has been positive thus far.
