I have been working at EchoStar full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Echostar gets a bad rap but it really isnt that bad in the software engineering area

Cons

Sometimes the management can lose focus or get wrapped up in the hurry of a large project, but thats probably to be expected anywhere

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at EchoStar full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Love my atmosphere, coworkers, nature of my position. I've promoted up from absolute bottom to a corporate setting. Continually challenged and pushed to learn more constantly.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are a definite bust. It seems to be common within the company to withold the best pay for individuals hired from outside the company instead of solid pay increases for people promoting from within.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate the pay level vs experience and focus on keeping qualified, experienced staff.

    Pros

    Depending on which team you work, there are places where you can learn a lot. overall nice as a stepping stone.
    Hard to get laid off, TV at work (of course)

    Cons

    minimum benefits and pay. no motivation to work.
    Pick any software development book and all things which are "donts" are done here.
