    Good work, lot of other cons

    Pros

    - Good work opportunities to work across multiple projects and domains. - Flexible office hours.

    Cons

    - Very low pay - Salary correction is not done for existing employees (even for the high performants). This reflects how the company respects and treats it existing employees. - Dish is ready to pay the new hires great CTC, but does not believe in paying it's existing employees well. - Due to upsizing in the last few years, the quality of engineers has drastically deteriorated. - No work life balance. Most of the teams have a US counterpart and this is enough a reason for Indians to lose their personal time. All meetings get scheduled during IST evenings. US members, usually, do not take calls in their evenings, so people in India have to bear the brunt of it and sacrifice their personal time. - HR team is the most inefficient and incompetent team I've ever seen. Their communication is bad or rather non-existent. They do not possess the basic skills required for people to deal with others. I've heard an instance where the HR manager spoke rather distastefully to a fresher in the HR round. It is sad to see this happen when the HR team are the face of the company. - Higher management do not like to operate on their level but they pressurise engineers all the time. - Appraisal does not happen on time and is always delayed. Again reflects badly on the company values.
