I have been working at DISH as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

fair contracting terms
good contracting experience

Cons

weak processes and hence lack of predictibility

Advice to ManagementAdvice

think strategic and stop focusing on what you think...think customer - means more market research and customer engagement. lesser of SVP and EVP lists and grids and more strategic and market defined goals.

    Pros

    You grow close to the people around you and get a good sense of family outside of family with your assignment team. a good agent can easily attain 1k a week from this job.

    Cons

    They recentyl (as of sept 2012) revamped the pay structure into a complex web of mathematical algorithms to pay their sales reps. Not only does your pay literally change from day to day, but there is no way to track/project what pay you would look forward to on your check. This dominoes into your personal life when it comes to bill, budgeting, leisure, etc.
    ABSOLUTELY NO UPWARD MOBILITY INTO CORPORATE UNLESS YOU MOVE TO COLORADO.... UMMM NO!
    ET - this acronym stands for extra time; Yes, you've read it correctly people. This company blatantly disregards any employees personal lives. You are forced to work a "mandatory" 10+ hours of "extra time" per week; and management is quick to reprimand those who don't by bullying and threatening the denial of vacation approval and job loss. When you enter those doors you are simply a number; a disposable tool. What takes the cake is that they schedule the overtime a week in advance.... HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF SUCH NONSENSE.... And again not all managers are tools but for the most, they are

    Short lived position - lack of support to thrive.

    Pros

    Pay was decent, commission structure was okay.

    Cons

    No database of existing clients at the time. Position was new when I began and every single sale was achieved through cold calling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help employees get the sales you want by implementing better resources and being more supportive.
