I have been working at DISH full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

I have been here 7 years and been promoted four times. If you work you will be rewarded. Fast paced not for those who just show up to work to get a paycheck and then while about here.

Cons

No company credit card. Must share hotel rooms when traveling in groups

    Current Employee - Senior Operations Analyst in Englewood, CO (US)

    I have been working at DISH full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay checks don't bounce. Solid work flow. Company is not okay with being average; always looking to the future and how to be better than the rest. Vast resources to get the job done.

    Cons

    Core hours. Unable to work remotely. Very out dated policies and procedures, and a lot of red tape to achieve goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The wireless possibility is creating quite an internal buzz. Look to your existing employees to staff the new opportunity and reinvigorate them. We now live in a mobile world, with call forwarding and VPN; look to provide work at home days and allow us to be the adults we are.

    I have been working at DISH full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ability to advance within department

    Cons

    Compensation is poor. Your typical promotion increase is 8-10% from a Very low base salary(typically bottom 20th percentile). Yearly merit increases are 2-4% for high perforners. Senior management cuts down any chance of adjustments, citing poor econmy or lack of budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp the entire compensation structure. Take a look at national percentiles and bring all of your employees into the 50th percentile!
