Promised a great opportunity, provided a lie

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsGreat tech's that work hard everyday. Four day work week. Great direct Managment. Ok pay.

ConsTechs are overloaded pay a dispatch computer that sends them all over the map with dispatchers who don't care. Upper management screams about points per hour but says the dispatch system doesn't have anything to do with it. Upper management tells lower to do things that are completely unrealistic. Wants van layouts that Dont work And then want to punish techs for not having their vans to layout. Consistently raise monthly goals for sales that techs have to meet and threaten to write them up if they don't meet the goals. Meanwhile, they are trying to finish 7 jobs and bring some of those jobs up to standard that subcontractors did wrong. Providing insurance that is useless unless you get in to a major accident but charge you $150 a paycheck to have it. Upper management doesn't care what their lower managers have to say. They will tell their IM's and FSM's one thing one day and another the next. Get angry when they didn't accomplish goals when the goals were not reachable to begin with. Upper management doesn't care now nor will they ever care about the techs. If a manager shows any kind of loyalty to a tech, that manager is singled out and they find a way to punish him. To show you the integrity of the company. When Dish was listed "As the worst company to work for" all of our managers received e mails from The Colorado home office stating. Please go to Glassdoor.com and tell everyone how wonderful it is to work here at Dish. That may be true in Colorado, in the field elsewhere however, no. Run far and run fast. Just don't run to here.....

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people who are actually in the field doing the job. Don't threaten people or make them feel like they don't matter but tell them to treat others like gold. Train people better so they don't get in to the field and get lost. You can't expect people to do a good job without providing the tools

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: Decent pay and up to three days off Cons: They say to be safe in the meetings then expect you to crawl in an attic across exposed wires sucking down asbestos battling spiders… Advice to Senior Management: See cons.. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    The worst employer I can even imagine...

    Inside Sales Manager (Former Employee) Littleton, CO (US)

    I worked at DISH full-time for more than a year


    Pros: None. I am ashamed to say I ever worked here and future employers… Cons: Terrible management. No concern for employees. Poor wages.… Advice to Senior Management: Try to at least pretend your employees matter. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
