Pros

They have a strategy and design teams that are reinventing the digital entertainment landscape. Amazing talent, collaboration and guts. The real deal, folks.

Cons

DIRECTV is a white knight battling for what's right for TV customers, but the content rights landscape is really tricky. With their reach and clout, they will prevail on behalf of all the people paying good money for good TV.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing. Don't give up. Don't settle. Fight the good fight, and keep the team tight and strong.

    I worked at DIRECTV full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are the only advantage.

    Cons

    Working in fear daily, lack of leadership, no career development or opportunities in other business divisions, and top-level lack of engagement at local levels. Regional VP's, Directors, and Site Managers are too busy creating a culture of internal competition to realize that they are missing a greater goal. Senergy! HR is so impressed with who they are that they are missing what they are not. They are not aligned, positioned, nor equiped to respond to immediate business needs. This is why they are always reacting to issues instead of leading, and preventing them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a risk and get to know your workforce. When hiring talent, take the time to get to know the strengths and weaknesses of each team member and utilize them for their capabilities. Stop acting like everything is moving forward, and start realizing that middle management is not promoting change in the organization.
