    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Space Systems/Loral full-time (More than 3 years)


    Good work life balance for Silicon Valley. Some great talented and knowledgeable people scattered about the chaos. Some modern leaders among mostly dinosaurs in the executive suite. A great place to learn for younger engineers and interns, and anyone passionate about the space industry.


    Extremely top-heavy company with a fossil for CEO. This CEO is mostly a passenger when he's not busy harming morale with stupid comments. Did you know leaders are supposed to inspire and not be abusive? No vision behind the current corporate turnaround effort called R2D2. Poor morale and culture that needs lots of work.

    Advice to Management

    Please retire now Mr. CEO. No one takes you seriously anymore, and your time passed a decade ago. Rome is burning, while you play the fiddle.

    Average Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Space Systems/Loral.


    Interview was not too intense. I met with HR first. Afterwards, I met with the hiring Manager and two of his employees. Was given a tour of the facility and had lunch in the cafeteria. Question asked related to my job experience and was given a good idea of what work I would be doing and what was expected from me.

    • Asked me if I knew about the company. Although they have almost 3000 employees, they are pretty stealth in the valley.   Answer Question
