I worked at DISH full-time (more than an 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 (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 (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work from home, 4 day work week, SOME excellent management and coworkers, neat customers, fun job at times

    Cons

    Long hours, No holidays, No practical potential for promotion, Corporate rules created by people who don't do the job, and are not logical. Low pay, and bad benefits!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you're doing.. most FSM's are amazing, and all of us respect what you do for us. The company needs to change as a whole though. I would advise management to ask technicians for real feedback, and feed it up the chain of command. Dish really needs a "suggestion box."
