    I have been working at Cobham SATCOM full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    People who are enthusiastic about their jobs and skilled in what they do. Advantages are the ability to engage in a workplace that is fun and technologies that are interesting and exciting. It is great to show up to work everyday and not only love what you do, but also who you're doing it for. There is a lot of opportunity to do your best work here and talented folks to help you succeed.

    Cons

    Global integration presents unique challenges. Streamlining internal and external communications is a must. Ensuring that employees understand and are on-board with company shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep everyone on the same page. Continue to encourage employees to engage and collaborate, and perform their best.

    I worked at Cobham SATCOM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was a wonderful company when there was a GM who cared about it. We knew what we were being told was the truth and he would fight for the employees no matter your job level. He held his senior management team accountable. The employees greatly respected him and would work very hard for him. That was when the company had integrity and ethics. But that is the past!

    Cons

    This is now a company ruled by an "iron-fist", a single person with no morals or integrity who has systematically gotten rid of anyone that opposed him and has now stacked the deck with like minded individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What goes around will come around, I hope you land on your feet.

    Pros

    A number of the individuals are pleasant.

    Cons

    Not a good place, everyone is lacking in business attire, almost beach wear, the location is not desireable, the company is spinning its tail and doesnt have a grasp of itself, amazing to sit in meetings and keywords for this industry were missed or unknown, no posted G n O's, redundant processes that do not close loops, a relic for ERP, the executive fires their hired management staff extremely fast, talk about turn over, the company believes its practicing lean manufacturing...its light years from being lean.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open with your employees, I know I will be reading about this location closing, just a matter of time, could see it the first couple of weeks there.
