    I have been working at Hughes Communications full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay.at first even if did not keep pace with cost of living.

    Cons

    Management ignored engineer suggestion in late 1990s and early 2000s which resulted in losing a massive share of consumer satellite communications, closing most of San Diego operations, and forcing workers to attend training in "Pathway to Dialog", as management blamed engineers for management mistakes. Disfunctional company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the engineers. They know more than you do.

    I have been working at Hughes Communications full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The overall work environment and people are great. I have had a couple of opportunities here that I'm not sure would have been possible at other companies. My upper management is great as long as you get the job done they are not breathing down your neck or giving you busy work.

    Cons

    I feel as though the benefits have degraded over the past couple of years. Especially now that we have been bought by Echostar. Compensation I feel is a little low, although it's not so bad that I'm out looking for another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course. Start making a lot of changes and people tend to get uncomfortable and that's when they jump ship and you loose good folks.
