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

Pros

Coolest technology in the pay TV industry
Lots of opportunity for committed employees who are strong enough to find their own path and not be dissuaded from contributing by jaded veterans

Cons

Since new CEO (Clayton) Company is evolving into a better place to work and contribute.
Long term structural challenges with margins from programmer leverage.
Lost the content race with competitors (Sports).

Advice to Management

Stay on your current path of changing the culture towards valuing employees.

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

    Pros

    Fun industry to work in.
    Industry leading products like Hopper & TV Anywhere.
    Work/Life balance is actually pretty good for an indirect sales role.

    Cons

    No value placed on professional achievements. Very little opportunity for professional growth without packing your whole family up and moving to another state for a very small raise that wouldn't cover your cost of moving.
    Salary is below average for Industry.
    Support structure is very weak for Account Manager and Territory Account Rep Positions.
    Sales goals are extremely unrealistic and increased YOY even though the market is mature.
    Annual job cuts make long term outlook very bleak.

    Advice to Management

    There is no evaluation process in place for Management. The company culture is horrible. There is no value placed on employees. I spent the entire 5 years looking over my shoulder worried about losing my job due to the annual job cuts that became all to frequent. Salaries are below average at best and sales goals are extremely unrealistic and deflating.

    The only thing I pay for cable is the equipment

    Cons

    The hours do not allow you to have time for yourself

    Advice to Management

    Allow for swapping on alternate weeks in the same pay period
