    I worked at DISH full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    ability to work for an industry shaping company, lots of levels of the company for growth, typically hire people (in entry level roles) for who they can become not exactly what they've done/studied in past

    Cons

    not flexible with PTO/work from home or "life" things that arise, very strict HR policy, the official feedback and review process is a joke and takes months to get results, typically low wages for entry to mid-level associates, budget process for marketing is a joke and is not based on data but the Chairman's lofty goals for company, uncertain future of company

    Advice to Management

    improve the review process for employees (make shorter feedback loop), focus on people first not bottom-line, provide more technical training to employees when hired for technical jobs
