I have been working at DISH as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

fair contracting terms
good contracting experience

Cons

weak processes and hence lack of predictibility

Advice to Management

think strategic and stop focusing on what you think...think customer - means more market research and customer engagement. lesser of SVP and EVP lists and grids and more strategic and market defined goals.

    I have been working at DISH full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Ability to control your own destiny. Working with customers. Dish has a great product. Dish is trying to be number one in customer service. They provide the tools required for the job.

    Cons

    High school shop class mentality. Some previous installations are hack jobs that appear to be performed by jack leg installers primarily Direct TV contractors. Not all Direct TV installations are hack jobs and neither are all of the DISH installations installed to company standards. Dish is working to improve installation quality and service. The vans and trucks need to be serviced, and washed when they are dirty not just every other week.

    Advice to Management

    Support the techs better. Don't jump to conclusions if a tech calls for help they have called as a last resort, the tech is already stressed, be supportive instead of jumping to conclusions. Improve the field training so new tech's are not just thrown to the wolves.
