Is your employer on the list? Companies often tout their workplaces as an inviting environment for employees. Yet many are far from it, and employees at many of America’s largest corporations dislike, or even hate, their jobs. Some of America’s best-known corporations are notorious for their low pay, poor management decisions and dysfunctional workplace cultures. In the USA, many companies are receiving ratings on Glassdoor.com that proclaim their workplaces to be subpar. Often, however, a combination of perceived low pay, disillusionment with management decisions and a dysfunctional culture that values making money over customer service creates unhappy employees at some of America’s best-known corporations.
Most common complaint? Not being paid well enough, followed by little opportunity for a raise or promotion. 24/7 Wall St. looked at publicly traded companies with over 300 reviews on Glassdoor, and found the lowest of the low-rated.

1. Dish Network – Many reviewers objected to the company’s long hours and no holidays. “You work all day all night. Your day starts from 6:45am till 6pm or 10pm You work every holiday that your day falls on.” It is no surprise then that reviewers suggested employees were unhappy with management, citing “mandatory overtime” and “no flexibility” with schedule. Perhaps the dissatisfaction of employees is affecting customer satisfaction.
