    I have been working at Hughes Communications full-time

    Pros

    Working with a lot of talent senior engineers.

    Cons

    Most of the leaders/managers are micro management.
    Expect you to work long hours.
    Sometimes will receive calls from your management even you are officially on vacation, and expect you to work.
    Never appreciate what you have been given to the company but will criticize you even small mistake.
    No balance your life.
    Bonus depends on whether the boss likes you or not, or whether you are his "buddy", not because of your performance. Bonus among high up compare to engineers and below are big gap. Management is top to bottom.
    No opportunities for grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should go for training of how manage engineers instead of perform programming or any technical related work with their staff. Should listen to what your engineers have to say, and take their ideas into consideration to improvement company working environment.
