    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Hughes Network Systems full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Company has a huge capital, all used for wrong reasons.

    Cons

    I can mostly speak for the manufacturing division in Gaithersburg, if not the whole org. Its a toxic environment of name calling, firing, abusing, forcing overtime, low morale and bad management. No amount of money can make people stay here. The benefits of Echostar are one of the worst offered in the market.
