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.

    Pros

    Strong company that's not going anywhere. Good benefits. High morale. Strong senior leadership. Competitive pay. Complimentary DIRECTV. Currently undergoing major building renovation to modernize work environment, meeting spaces, cafeteria, and gym.

    Cons

    Long commute (for me). Competitive industry with increasing competition. For me, not a clear path of growth opportunity (my co-workers have been around for over a decade in same position).

    - Get control of the code...i.e. perform code reviews on contractors.
    - Although you have career path tools in place no one really takes them seriously.
