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

    Soo many new high level execs have come in with a key objective to make it a better work environment. Everyone is so focused, it's become a really good place to work very quickly. Yes they get reports on when employees come in and leave, but they use them to make sure employees aren't working too hard. Personally I love it, but I'm fairly new.

    One of the coolest things I've seen is that they let employees change groups once they feel like they've mastered their current position. Lots of employee training and growth potential.

    Cons

    Lots of new and young people but I'm not sure that's bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep Charlie out of the building.

    Pros

    You get 80 paid hours off a yr plus unpaid days as well as 40 hrs of sick days after 2 yrs
    Lot's of overtime
    Advancement can be easy for the right people
    Certain members of management are amazing and know ways to help you if you need help

    Cons

    days off have to be scheduled and at certain times are blocked off.
    Some members of management are completely not helpful.
    pay is not comparable to other companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please remember that when many of you were taking calls how very stressful this job can be. Morale at the center I was in at the time I left was very low. I was so proud to have worked at Dish for a long time. I can't account for the enterprise, but at my center there is a huge disconnect.
