    " Loved My Job At Dish "Laid Me Off, After Almost 9 Years" Field Service Manager

    I worked at DISH full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good Company to work, I would guess depending on what your position. Great co-workers. Like most jobs, you get out of the job, what you put in, decent salary..bonuses for top performance.

    Cons

    For me, there were no cons, I put my heart into Dish for over 8 years and was Laid Off, said they were restructuring. Lead my team in Sales and most metrics for almost 2 years and they told me, it was my past performance before that. Really 3 years ago..I just didn't understand where that came from...Since Dish recently restructured upper management" they got rid of the GM positions across the board, so in my particular office the GM was offered the Operations Manager position and the Operations Manager was offered the Field Service position, which they both accepted...so manager ended up being bump down to a Field Service Manager almost 2 months before I was laid off , so I should have seen the writing on the wall.. I wasn't even going to post this review but glasdoor wouldn't let me continue to look at other job posting reviews, till I did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Dish is really headed in the right direction, I just wish upper management would have offered me a position, even if it were a notch below, what I was doing...instead of just throwing me out, after 8 plus years of service...God Bless

    Pros

    Pay is average but the incentives is what makes Dish a good place to work. The managers are really nice and helpful, they don't bother you at all. Teamwork is really important, but I guess it all depends on where you work. Promotion depends on your work performance so that's a plus.

    Cons

    Poor benefits. Training should be a lot more hands on.
