Joseph, I can see where that would be a tough position for an engineer. To have a job that is technically challenging but unsatisfying from a working conditions standpoint. With the only alternatives of either leaving the area or working in a job that is not technically challenging. I have never faced that living in Silicon Valley. Lots of challenging opportunities. Some companies run a lot better than others but even some of the old stalwarts like HP are now struggling. In my 40+ years of employment in the engineering field, I have worked for 4 companies, All were technically challenging. As management and attitudes changed in 2 of the companies I left for better working conditions. I have a friend that is an technical consultant that moved to the Denver area to be close to family and in 10 years, he never had a consulting job in the Denver area. They were always in Silicon Valley or some other area. He just moved back to the Valley.

I still cannot believe that a company with what has been reported as such a bad reputation in the marketplace would be able to hire unless 1) people are just that desperate for work (as DoyleS suggested) or 2) people are really stupid and accepted the job despite the reputation or 3) DISH's reputation is not as bad as portrayed by a few haters on the Internet.

It happens with Wal-Mart.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Perhaps these "a few haters" has the real knowledge. Opposite to the believers.
