    I worked at Loral Space full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company is small but they are involved in many inventive areas and there is a lot going on within the company. There are opportunities to meet new people and learn from them. Senior management are helpful and approachable. There is the sense that everyone is "in it together".

    Cons

    The small size of the company could be a drawback for some individuals. There is no room for "hiding" no "anonymity" it's all "hands on deck".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Loral Space

    Pros

    This is a growing company with lots of opportunity to demonstrate leadership and to grow ones self professionally.

    Cons

    Processes involved in building satellites can be strict and confining. While understandable in light of the requirement for reliability in the space environment, this can be daunting for the uninitiated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be too eager to implement whatever new fangled MBA mantra is the fashion of the day, without analyzing applicability to the satellite building low volume manufacturing environment.
