    I worked at Phoenix Satellite Television full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone in all the departments are friendly and helpful. The workload is not very stressful except when dealing with dissatisfied customers on orders. Company offers flexible work schedule, so great if you have children. Managers are all really nice and don't micromanage. Employees typically got along great at work and outside of work.

    Cons

    There is no structured training or mentoring programs provided by the company or management. If you are looking for management positions or much growth opportunities, this is not the place to go. It will probably be 5-10 years before you see any type of large promotion. The wages are mediocre with small raises. Company benefits were average. You get small bonuses and gifts the longer you stay with the company.
