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

    Pros

    Enjoy the work and the people

    Cons

    Work life balance is poor. At technician office locations, managers are worked as many hours as possible without any consideration to their families.

    Advice to Management

    Know your staff beyond metrics

    I have been working at DISH

    Pros

    1. Get to learn a lot of stuff depending on the team.

    Cons

    1. Benefits suck, very little flexibility. 2. Most promotions go to those who our loudest about their work, not necessarily on merit. 3. Depending on projects, they count hours worked for even full-time employees. Have no trust in employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees well if you want them to stay.

    I worked at DISH full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You have a lot of benefits. 401k, company stocks, good insurance, FMLA, vacation hours, and the day goes by fast, plus you only work 4 days out of the week.

    Cons

    Most of the supervisors have favorites, the training department takes forever to schedule you for the trainings requested and you need a lot of certifications in order to move up to the next associate level plus there needs to be an open position and no one leaves the upper positions.

      Pros

      Being a remote tech is great. Start your day and end it in your driveway

      Cons

      Your suppose to be a technician but all they care about now is you selling overpriced crappy equipment to customer and will fire you if you don't meet quota

      Advice to Management

      Take care of good employees even if they get hurt on the job. That is when you should really care

      No Opinion of CEO

      I worked at DISH full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Pay is decent, you can learn about a lot different things in technology

      Cons

      Too much mandatory overtime because management was quick to fire someone who didn’t catch on quickly, barely any vacation time, extremely heavy emphasis on sales, you might as well be prepared to kiss your life goodbye because it is hard to get days off

      Advice to Management

      Stop forcing your technicians to do more things and not compensating them for taking on bigger roles, update metrics to meet current business operations and not metrics from years ago, give more time away from work to employees so they won’t experience burnout and you’ll get more production and can lower the turnover rate
