Cool place to work, but not career worthy.
Inventory Specialist (Former Employee), Salisbury, MDJuly 24, 2014
Pros: good management.
Cons: poor benefits. one bad co-worker.
Typical work day was physical, but stress free. Good teamwork and very enjoyable management team. Learned how to do job basics though a single co-worker did try to over complicate some aspects of the tasks. Management was very approachable and friendly, and listened to issues and tried to resolve any issue in a productive manner. Most co-workers were – more... very delightful with one exception, but overlooked that due to the cohesiveness of the overall team. Pay was good for area, but insurance benefits were terrible. The job was not hard at all, but could be made difficult by one individual at times. Enjoyed my time here and would consider employment there in the future if benefits improved and compensation go better. – less

Work hard, put in maximum effort, no recongnition
Inventory Specialist (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NMJuly 24, 2014
I learned how to manage up to 25 technicians, the millions of dollars of equipment on a daily basis, how to prioritize and learn how to use Excel.
Office in Aztec NM was one the region's best when it was operating. Everyone worked together to make company goals, in production, inventory maintenance and personal goals.
Upper management outside facility – more... were not supportive. Advancement within company was discouraged. Vacation time was discouraged.
Despite all that everyday was challenging, Working alone maintaining daily inventory was the most challenging aspect of the position – less

Great place to start a Career
Coach/Supervisor (Former Employee), Littleton, COJuly 21, 2014
Pros: easy movement
Cons: you dont retire from dish
My typical day is to manage employees. take time to pull agents aside to train or to motivate them. Train agents who need to be trained and to create new goals for agents. I learned how to manage, hire prospective agents and to know when to let agents go that was not motivated by the job. I also learned how to utilize Xcel very well and how to multi – more... task when it comes to what benefits the company. The management is sub par and that was the hardest part about the job. I was a supervisor and I felt like as that I would have managers that cared to bring me to the next step which was not the case which inevitably was the reason why I left. Co workers were sub par as well, most of them would be more into every other persons business then minding their own. Hardest part was managing school and work based on what was needed for me to succeed. The most enjoyable part is the ability to move up quickly in the company if you really wanted to. – less

Service Supervisor (Current Employee), El Paso, TXJuly 20, 2014
Work Life imbalance, early start time in manufacturing @ 4am. Dish is growing and the potential to advance with the company is great. However you will be giving up time with your family in order to move up this corporate ladder. Decide whats most important job.....or family.

Tester (Current Employee), Spartanburg, SCJuly 19, 2014
Pros: free dish
Cons: long hours, working on off days, management
Supervisors show favoritism. They don't listen to problems of their employees. Very high turnover rate because they work the good employees to death. Not enough for $10.75!

DISH rated "Worst company in America" by its own employees
Trainer (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAJuly 18, 2014
Pros: free equipment, tools, company vehicles (in some positions)
Cons: managers, the boys club, lack of independence, mixed messages on policies and procedures
The title to this should say it all. The company is run as a "boys club" mentality and anyone outside of that club and below that club is easily disposable and replaceable. Don't ever fool yourself into thinking your work matters other than putting money into Charlie Ergens pockets.

Some of the managers will be real good but rarely do anything by the – more... books and will use their "short cuts" against you to get you booted out the door. Even when you play by the books DISH has a "Bottom 20%" mentality and anyone not competing for #1 even if your 99% on your job if there is 8 more that are 99.5% your OUT!

Take it for what it is, DISH is a great stepping stone to better things in your career somewhere else – less
