Pros: discount on dish

typical day at work = fun, demanding, challenging. Management was some what helpful. they are good on implementing new changes but lack in help if needed. Co-workers awesome people to work with.
Hardest part of the job changes happened everyday. adjusting to change everyday. Enjoyable, going in at 4am out at 2pm....weekends off.

A call Center
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Littleton, COMay 9, 2014
It is a call center. I handled around 50 to 60 incoming calls per day within 8 hour shift. I learned to communicate better with every kinds of customers through phone. Also, i learned to be more patient. Management was good but at times it was not very convenient. I had great group of co workers. I found this job to be pretty easy. The most enjoyable – more... part was to make the clients or customers happy which gave me ultimate satisfaction. – less

Terrible cuture; top heavy management
Key Accounts Manager, Sales (Former Employee), Englewood, COApril 29, 2014
Pros: job security, experience
Cons: compensation, benefits, culture
EchoStar is great for recent college graduates to get their career started. EchoStar is typical 8-5 job with minimal stress and risk involved. The management is top heavy so career advancement is unlikely and if a position does open up, they will fill the position with an outside candidate. The good news with EchoStar is job security, the bad news the – more... lack of pay and benefits. The culture and moral are very low at EchoStar, but most of the employees are content with there careers and have very little desire to venture out for a risk and reward position. – less

Admin (Current Employee), Denver, COApril 15, 2014
Pros: decent job security

Its not as bad as most people make it out to be.
Although benefits and Management can improve.

Your Ideas are very hard to sell mostly have to do things the way you are asked to do.

If you are lucky you may get good manger and mentoring etc.

I adored this job, by far the best job I've ever held, I always knew customer service was the place for me, from my supervisors to my coworkers i got along with everyone.

I enjoyed making sure a customer that i was – more... speaking with was fully satisfied with the service i provided them before ending each call – less

dull
Bilingual Customer Sales and Service Rep (Former Employee), Denver, CoMarch 24, 2014
Pros: no pros
Cons: everything
It is a dead end job with absolutely no opportunity to grow or make a career out of it. Definitely one of those jobs that defines a person and their ambitions, there were people there who had been working there for over 20 years and never been promoted, you either work there and realize that you need to change your life or work there and stay stuck – more... there. Compensation started off good but they changed and it ended up being really bad pay! – less

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), McKeesport PaMarch 18, 2014
This was a fast paced work enviroment, with mostly hands on learning. Customer Service and sales was key parts of the day. Co-workers were enthusiastic about bonus incentives. The hardest part was technical support. The best part of my job was making customers happy with their new programming choices!
