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

Free DISH and free parking

Mentality of entire corporation is negative and demeaning to employees, from "badge in, badge out" to lack of appreciation or consideration of employees.

Look up consideration, empathy, and employee value in a dictionary

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

    Pros

    Good product, understanding technicians, and a familiar brand name good to put on the resume considering its' Fortune 500 status.

    Cons

    The prototype of a hostile work environment. You will have your performance second guessed on a regular basis. Covert and overt threats are so dominant within the culture you become a victim of Stockholm, to some extent. Expecting and even sympathizing with them. A systematic process of browbeating even the best of your work, to the point of emotional exhaustion.

    Unreasonable hours, constant demands that require immediate turnarounds will psychologically impact you if remaining there long term.

    The culture is abusive and is indicative of a hostile work environment.

    Just so you know, I was in middle management, with no write ups, and under par performance reviews. If you can at all avoid it, do not accept a position at this company. They will undervalue and demoralize you in every way possible.

    Advice to Management

    I can't give any. Simply because the terror is a top down approach. They are only following instructions, robotic and fearful of their own outcome if they do not comply.

    From an overall macro perspective, I would rip the entire executive management team a mound of pink slips, bring in other management from top shelf companies, and bring healing and restoration to the organizational structure. It is fruit from the poisonous tree.

    I worked at DISH full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility, freedom, meeting new people

    Cons

    Dish does not value their employees, never any positive feedback from management, made to feel that the job you do is never good enough. Terrible communication and always a blindside.

    Advice to Management

    Positive reinforcement goes a long way and so does trust.
