Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Good pay
Stable company
Benefits and 401(k) and insurance
Vacation time
Good experience and opportunity to learn
Promotions are frequent because of fairly high employee churn in operations.

Cons

A lot is expected of employees and hours can be long. If you can't take the pressure of the stress, then this probably isn't a good job for you.

Advice to Management

Some of middle management needs to be changed. The top has vision and good intentions, but the execution by the middle is weak and we all suffer the consequences.

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

    Pros

    4 day work week
    Overtime available
    Independent work
    Tools and equipment are provided
    Training and support from dispatch and managers
    I'm a service rep in the mountains of Colorado, so I spent a lot of my time driving through the mountains! What's better than being paid (with gas and company van) to drive around the Rockies?

    Cons

    Spend most of the time out in the elements. In Colorado it's been a cold, long winter!
    Sales reps are now asked to sell stuff like headphones. Customers never want to buy them.
    Before starting your work orders, you have to drive to the Dish office to pick up the van. It would be easier if we could stock the vans the night before and go directly to our jobs

    Advice to Management

    Consider letting service reps bring vans home. There could be some advantages.
