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

Pros

professional coworkers
good work/life balance. My office hours were usually 8-6.
financial support for continuing education
university outreach/recruiting is fun and sometimes involves travel
adhesion to industry best practices
large, diverse team with a lot of experience
DENVER! Working in Denver was a great experience. I miss that place.

Cons

Decisions were made in a bureaucratic way and so the company wasn't very agile. When I was there, our code wasn't pushed to production on a daily basis.

Advice to Management

create an environment an environment that is more conducive to innovation and try to minimize bureaucracy

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

    Pros

    good pay, full time hours, benefits. trainers are good and prepare us well for the job.

    Cons

    it's pay television customer service, so you'd best be prepared for some angry customers! Besides that, there's a strict policy about missing work and sick days.

    Advice to Management

    employee assessments are sometimes unfair and don't into account complex subscriber issues.

    Pros

    Working in sales at Dish has been a great and profitable experience for me. It is what you make it: a strong work ethic leads to promotions in our office. Recently there have been a lot of promotions and generally people are cheerful because a lot of bonuses have been given.

    Cons

    Unless you have drive and enjoy a challenge, this could be a frustrating position. Since it's mostly commission based pay, you have to go after it and close sales.

    The benefits like healthcare and vacation time aren't that great.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to give sales reps more autonomy. We're motivated and often have good ideas too!
