    Former Employee - SMTS3 in Germantown, MD

    I worked at Hughes Communications full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    At least when I was working there they had generous vacation and health benefits (but I heard that's changed since they were sold to echo star)

    Cons

    There was no way for junior people to advance. Seniority is the king at Hughes regardless of merit. It's work your way up in the true sense of the phrase. The pay is also way below industry standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're stuck in stone ages. Look around what others are doing to retain their talents.

    Former Intern - Software Engineer Intern in Germantown, MD

    I worked at Hughes Communications as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great technology. Great people. It is a great company to start building your resume. They will make you learn about their product and development. They show you the entire approach as a group to develop a new product and will make you feel important. You are given a task just like any other team member.

    Cons

    HR is not the best. Hard to reach and not very helpful. Not very active kind of job, can spend days in your office without contact to anybody besides emails.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Force HR to be more reachable and helpful with new interns. I know that most interns want to keep working with you but HR does not follow up or communicate at the end of internship. HR won't respond to emails on time.
