I left Dish several years ago, but I still have a lot of friends who work there so I came here to see what's going on. From what I see, there were major layoffs, but I can't figure out if these were furloughs, temporary layoffs, or permanent layoffs? Can anybody clear this out for me? I'm really hoping it's the first one, but I am aware it's not likely.

Permanent... We were the employees are free to apply for jobs again when they start hiring, but honestly I don't know why you'd want to come back.
Dish let go over 1,000 IHS employees in addition to many corporate employees. Dish targeted long tenured (loyal) corporate employees to cut to the tune of 20 percent. This is just the beginning as more cuts will be necessary in order to fund the 5G build out. Zero severance or extended health benefits were given.
