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

Pros

Paycheck, although not industry standard.
Covered parking if you get there early enough
Cafe onsite with good food

Cons

Lack of communciation, especially as one goes up the ladder. There are quite a few managers that are not willing to meet to resolve issues or find a more efficient way of handling tasks. Too many people that have made it up the ladder and are just waiting for retirement. The CEO sent out an email recently that stated changes were made for the better...that memo announced that VPs had become Sr. VPs, etc. In accounting, employees are expected to work 60+ hours a week with no compensation. Managers deny doctor's appointments and suggest they be made before 9 a.m. and after 4 p.m. or at lunch...but only between 11:30 and 1:00...not a lot of doctors that have appointments during those hours.

There are many employees that have a real attitude about their work and are either afraid to share what they know because they are afraid they will lose their job or will not speak at all because they are afraid they will be given something else to do.

Too much micromanagement...you hired employees for their knowledge, let them use it. The interview process is a joke...takes two months to finally get an interview. Have to "pass" the tests and assessments given...they should really look at some of the employees that were there prior to the assessments...don't think they would pass now.

Advice to Management

Look up the ladder at some of the mid managers that do not have the "DISH attitude" as described by CEO Joe Clayton. There are some new managers that have the right attitude and ambition, but I wonder how long that will be before they lose that and just go with the flow and continually see a turnover.

    I have been working at DISH as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    fair contracting terms
    good contracting experience

    Cons

    weak processes and hence lack of predictibility

    Advice to Management

    think strategic and stop focusing on what you think...think customer - means more market research and customer engagement. lesser of SVP and EVP lists and grids and more strategic and market defined goals.

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

    Pros

    Ability to control your own destiny. Working with customers. Dish has a great product. Dish is trying to be number one in customer service. They provide the tools required for the job.

    Cons

    High school shop class mentality. Some previous installations are hack jobs that appear to be performed by jack leg installers primarily Direct TV contractors. Not all Direct TV installations are hack jobs and neither are all of the DISH installations installed to company standards. Dish is working to improve installation quality and service. The vans and trucks need to be serviced, and washed when they are dirty not just every other week.

    Advice to Management

    Support the techs better. Don't jump to conclusions if a tech calls for help they have called as a last resort, the tech is already stressed, be supportive instead of jumping to conclusions. Improve the field training so new tech's are not just thrown to the wolves.
