    Pros

    The benefits are great, Human resources has created a great atmosphere and balances your personal life with your work life.

    Personal growth is very difficult. There is very little room to grow (at least in the Colombia branch).

    I have been working at DIRECTV full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work with very nice people. Senior leadership or upper management truly cares about each employees personal success and there are many programs in place to help you do just that. Great benefits and competitive pay. Culture of continuous improvement has helped aligned all employees to focus on customer experience and creates a fun and structured work environment.

    Cons

    AT&T is about take over the company and not sure what that would look like for directv and that is something to keep in mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Directv is a very well run organization and top leadership should push for sustaining culture as AT&T takes over.

    I worked at DIRECTV

    Pros

    A lot of events for growth - such as lunchtime sessions to learn about the various parts of the company and talks to learn more about the various things you can do within your current department. Upper management was super approachable!

    Nice facilities with a great gym (which is free for interns)

    Free hot chocolate on every floor and a cheapish cafeteria (easily stayed within my $5 a lunch budget)

    A great community feel - everyone is so nice!!

    Cons

    Pay wasn't amazingly awesome - it was enough to live off of

    Some politics when it came to payment. Negotiate your salary and ask for a housing stipend (if you are relocating from out-of-state).
