I have been working at DISH full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Live in Colorado near the Rocky Mountains! Ride your bike to a great office in Meridian, just south of Denver. Professionally I was pushed out of my comfort zone and assigned tasks that were beyond my experience, but this made me grow professionally and I was eventually rewarded with a promotion as I began to take risks and propose new ideas.

Cons

Everyone is expected to work long hours, and sometimes you're not even thanked for it. The pay isn't exceptional. In fact it's less than at competitors according to this website.

High turnover of employees from entry level to high level executives. There were 3 CMOs in the 4 years I worked there.

The pay television industry is mature, and all cable/satellite providers are struggling.

Advice to Management

Retain your best employees -- too many have left for better paying jobs at with your competitors.

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

    Pros

    I work as a front end software developer in the New York City office, so it may or may not be relevant to other offices and departments. Here's my 2 cents:
    - Leadership: I enjoy working with industry veterans from companies that Dish and its subsidiaries have acquired like Move Networks and Sling -- two of the earliest online video companies
    - Innovation: Our team at Dish is always working on new platforms and systems and pushing the envelope! Exploring Roku, Smart TVs, new mobile platforms. This lets me keep learning and developing myself professionally.
    - Vision: Dish seems to have a clear long term vision which includes the wireless industry. I like working in a company that's growing!
    - Opportunity: Dish has a disproportionate number of young managers and leaders. Management seems to notice when someone takes initiative

    Cons

    - large company with so many employees means the deployments are slow and any organizational change takes years!
    - not enough PDO
