    I have been working at Avanti Communications full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    a lot of good people work there , and they make everyone feel part of it.

    Cons

    too many managers who cannot manage, and departments who dont communicate with each other. Also some useless people who coast along doing as little as possible, and just pass the buck at every opportunity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to people at the coal face, rather than the `yes men` who tell you what you want to hear, instead of whats actually going on.

    A bullying culture seems to be endemic in this company.

    "intimidation" is not a healthy management style

    I worked at Avanti Communications

    Pros

    - basic premise and offering is good, so the company should have potential for growth and success
    - could be good first job for technical roles to get experience in space/telecoms/satellite

    Cons

    Obsession with short term share price takes prioirity over long term strategy and plans. Employees aren't allowed to make decisions or influence them and input which does not agree with the ideas of the senior manager are immediately dismissed. Strategy changes on the whim of one individual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Presumably you employ people for a reason? So start trusting them, let them contribute to the company and stop creating a demoralised and scared workforce.

    I worked at Avanti Communications

    Pros

    The company has some great individuals and is incredibly diverse however the management lack emotional intelligence and seem to be only interested in the share price.

    Cons

    The management lack emotional intelligence and seem to be only interested in the share price. This combined with the lack of trust made it a very difficult place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look after your staff and forget your pockets.
