Innovative and stable company ith plenty of work available.

Software Engineer III (Current Employee)
Germantown, MD

I have been working at Hughes Network full-time for more than 8 years

ProsManagement let's you try new technology and are very supportive. No layoffs, probably because a lot of junior engineers leave after 4 or 5 years. No cubicles for more privacy.

ConsTelecommuting is not allowed. Echo star has bought out Hughes. Everybody is worried about benefits becoming worse under Echostar. Promotions do not come easy.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote and better pay the top junior programmers to retain them.
