They just don't care about their employees.

I have been working at DISH full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

As a technician, it is good pay. Have three days off(although there are rumors that might change).

Cons

Their way or the highway mentality of management. They seem to think very house is exactly the same therefore every install should be the same. You get blamed for things that are out of your control. Because of that you lose incentive money. Long hours. When you get home, all you have time to do is eat and then go to sleep. Managements response is, "you're getting paid per hour, so just do it." "It is what it is." Upper management just cares about the numbers. Benefits are horrible and expensive.

    Pros

    They will take anyone who can read, write and has a pulse.
    Long time employees are very dedicated and good at their job.
    If you are willing to stick it out for a few years you can make decent pay even with low education.

    Cons

    They will take anyone who can read, write and has a pulse.
    The company is very rigid yet expects their employees to be highly flexible.
    There is not enough of an incentive to keep quality people there more than a few months. Bottom line is that if you are quality, can reason and solve problems you will do well but keep looking. Until they roll out a plan to give incentive to those quality individuals they will keep leaving as soon as something better is available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop moving jobs overseas.

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

    Pros

    Decent wages. Coworkers are generally nice and helpful. Sufficient updates on business changes, which are frequent. Benefits are average, but not the worst I've seen. They try to do fun things like barbecues, singing contests, anniversary parties, etc, to improve morale.

    Cons

    Lack of schedule flexibility. Inability to schedule unpaid days off. Inadequate and infrequent feedback from management. Mandatory overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for more coaching time so that supervisors can provide feedback with agents. You want us to meet certain metrics at the company. I believe that feedback is essential.
    The lack of flexibility with scheduling and occasional mandatory overtime makes work/life balance more difficult, especially those with families.
