    Has been a great company to work for.

    I have been working at DISH

    Pros

    Great pay....easy job and great bonus monthly. Also..our site manager has been tremendous to our success. I can honestly say if it wasnt for him and his great work ethics..I would not be where I'm at today.

    Cons

    No conns for me...You can't expect to work for a place with no obstcales... Make you own path to success and be the solution..stop complaining to stand up and say something if you dont like it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand your role and understand how you got there. One thing I would say for them is...would you be a coach and want to work for yourself? If so then keep doing what your doing...if not begin to work on yourself before your work on others.

    I have been working at DISH full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good people and good benefits. I have no complaint about anybody that keeps you busy and helps me keep my family fed and housed. Dish treats me fairly and compensates based on what I give back in performance. I couldn't ask for any better. Every company has rules put in place to protect you and them, Dish is no different. Work is for those who want to work.

    Cons

    I cannot at this time think of anything that would require a negative comment about Dish. They are in line with any corporation or company in business today that is customer driven and based on home installs in regards to policies and rules for safety and quality.

    I worked at DISH as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    DISH has a great company culture in a very exciting industry. I enjoyed the people that I worked with a lot and thought that upper management did a lot to make working at DISH fun and exciting.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be a little lopsided at times but most of the time that is dictated by how efficient you are at managing your time and getting your work done during the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope management continues to improve upon what they are doing with their attempts to increase their employees experience working at DISH (i.e. World Cup celebrations, summer concerts, 14er hikes, etc.).

    Pros

    Everyone is great to work with. The site is full of energy, laughter and over all fun. The Director and SOM/ management staff are super friendly.

    Cons

    I don't have any issues with the company. There might be some changes here and there but what company doesn't go through them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. Let's keep getting closer to our goals and succeed.

    I have been working at DISH full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Get to be one of the main decision makers on initiatives that have multi-million dollar impacts. The hours are very standard and are usually flexible.

    Cons

    The compensation is not the best. I could go somewhere else and immediately be making more. I also do not feel that the management realizes the value of their employees sometime, but this is starting to improve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a more realistic view on compensation for top employees if you expect to retain them.

    I have been working at DISH full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There's always something to do.
    Room for advancement.
    Every one works together.
    Even upper management tends to help out from time to time.

    Cons

    I really don't have any cons. I enjoy what I do. The only thing I can think of if there full time hours for the warehouse team and perks like the techs tend to get

    I have been working at DISH for more than a year

    Pros

    A Company that you can make a name for yourself. It is always changing and never gets boring.

    Cons

    It is always changing and sometimes sends mixed messages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think time should be spent to train the managers to be more effective. Leadership and mentoring of mangers would make this a much stronger company.
