What makes Dish Network the worst company to work for in America?

Dish Network was voted the worst company to work for in America in 2012 by 24/7 Wall St. based on reports from disgruntled employees venting their spleen on a site called Glass Door. However, Bloomberg Businessweek has taken a deeper look at the company's inner workings, and attempted to pinpoint the source of the stifling environment — like a fingerprint scanning system implemented to ensure employees clock in exactly on time — that has reportedly driven miserable workers out in droves. Speaking to a number of former and current employees, Bloomberg determined that Dish's founder and chairman, Charlie Ergen, is responsible for the high-pressure, strict work environment and the company's storied history of litigation — but also for much of the company's monetary success.
