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

    Pros

    Easy to learn other departments jobs and transfer.

    Cons

    Problems flow downhill quickly. Being in the TOC (bottom or entry level) other departments quickly find a way to pass the buck when problems arise.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and support employees that have worked worked for years there. There is finger pointing in every department when something happens. Create an inter-departmental investigation team when trying to find the origination of a problem.

    Pros

    They will send you to a ton of training, so you can quickly improve your resume with knowledge and certifications on new technology.

    Cons

    Long hours, micromanagement, blamestorming describes management at Echostar. They are truly a company where they expect you to take PTO for a 2 hour doctor's appointment during the day but think nothing of demanding you stay late to meet deadlines. And there's no real opportunity for advancement. There's always talk of how "we are changing the way things are done" but then when it comes times for reviews, surprise! Nothing ever changes.

    Advice to Management

    If your goal is to train people to quickly get better jobs elsewhere, BRAVO! Otherwise, you need to recognize that even in Cheyenne, there are now multiple technical opportunities that let people quickly move on.
