I worked at DISH full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good people to work with, marketable technology

Cons

Punch in, punch out, no flexi hours, no working from home, no 360 degree review - so managers are very powerful, if you conflict the manager then you hold a risk of getting laid off in "silent" layoffs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be practical, improve employee morale by introducing 360 degree employee review, introduce flexi hours

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

    Pros

    Great fellow technician, independent, 3 day weekends, necessary tools provided, bonus incentives, promotion upon meeting goals.

    Cons

    I have been a Dish tech since 2007 and worked my way up to a level 4 technician. After requesting a transfer to another office I was denied and force to quit to relocate. After arriving in my new city I was rehired at Dish as a level 1 technician. Being several hundreds miles away from home I had no choice but to accept a $6.50 an hour pay cut and start from the bottom again

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget where you came from and treat people the way you want to be treated. People don't quit jobs people quit management. We are not Salesman we are Technicians

    I have been working at DISH full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I like my fellow co workers and the technology is the best.

    Cons

    Well last week a report came out that said dish was the meanest company to work for and I have to agree. Now all of the sudden our CEO asked us to write positive reviews on here so I have been laughing at all these new comments. They must have gotten a perk for saying nice things. This place is a joke. It is cheap, micro managed, and scatter brained. Most managers don't have a clue but they get promoted because they have friends in upper management. They expect you to pay everything up front no matter the cost. We only get 10 dollars for lunch and 20 for dinner, so never expect a quality meal. Please do yourself a favor and never apply for a job here. Don't listen to those corporate guys praising this company. It isn't true

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It doesn't matter what you say. Nothing will change. Joe Clayton talks a big game , but that's about it. He doesn't care about you or your family. Maybe one day the company will get better but until then congrats on being named worst company to work for and meanest company in the us. That's what you worked for and now you got it.
