    I worked at DISH full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    DISH sells a culture of opportunity, and they mean it. I came in as a college grad, and before even a year of tenure I was presenting to my SVP. Promotions and career advancement conversations happened regularly with my manager, but the onus is on you to make those advancements happen. Make sure you're clear with your manager about specific tasks or skill you need to develop to get promoted, or you may feel like you're getting left behind. Expect to work hard, but I think generally that you're rewarded for that hard work. There are a lot of opportunities to stretch your knowledge, and you're given access to LinkedIn learning licenses to help you with that.

    Cons

    Company culture is top-down, which makes it feel forced and suffocating at time. The number of hours you are in the building (measured by badge reports, scanning in and out) is huge factor in promotions and raises. You HAVE to be in the office by 9 am or your VP gets an email saying you were "late". There's no work from home policy unless you have a good manager and they're flexible (which is admittedly becoming more common). Although culture varies a lot by team, I have seen a lot of improvements made at the company level (more food options, casual dress environment, employee resource groups, interest clubs, wireless initiative events, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees. No one should be afraid to eat lunch outside (badge out) on a regular basis during the summer. A work-from-home day once a month isn't a crazy ask from employees, especially for a company which is working to transition into the "tech" industry.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DISH (London, England).

    Interview

    I got a. Phone call from the talent team in Colorado, I was so happy and excited for the interview, I have a great big experience in sales customer service for years and in technology and I'm doing my masters degree MBA, the field manager was good and we talked for a long time he kept focusing on sales and he said you have a great sales experience and we need this from you as I also worked at the Marriott he said that's perfect that's the customer service we want. at the end I asked him when should. I hear something he said I still have 6 more interviews so you have a competition, one day after that I got email that they are. Moving with another candidate. It's very disappointing when you feel you are really over qualified for this position you you don't get hired.
