Pleasantly satisfied after many years.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Germantown, MD

ProsThe 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.

ConsI 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 Senior ManagementStay 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: No time clocks. Generally surrounded by bright people. High levels… Cons: Super slow to advance technologies. Still using WinXP, Oracle9i, and many other well dated technologies.
