    Former Employee - Principal Engineer in Washington, DC

    I worked at Intelsat full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The quality of the people that work here is high and the type of work is very interesting.
    Pay is about the middle of the rest of the industry, benefits are above average.

    Cons

    IT support is awful. Work load is continually increasing and does not look like this is going to level off any time soon. Poor IT support makes an already heavy work load even tougher to manage. It can take a long time (over 2 years ) to get a promised promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a lot of very experienced people working for you, but they are starting to leave for companies with more reasonable work loads. Once those experienced people are gone it will be difficult to rebuild a high caliber workforce.

    I have been working at Intelsat full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Resume addition. Decent amount of sick days. Decent 401K. Affordable health plans, good dental and vision plans. Opportunity to work with customers world wide.

    Cons

    The company does not provide a decent work schedule, and expects you to completely rearrange your life at the drop of a hat. The employee turnover takes too long to replace anyone who leaves. The work seems to just be increasing every month with less people. Instead of hiring to cover for lapses, they would rather have people work multiple 12 hour shifts many times a week. Respect is nonexistent in many cases. Very old school mind set. Low growth ceiling for many positions. IT department is incompetent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide atleast 2 week notice for a mandatory meeting, last minute 4 hour meetings that add onto an already long day are not good for morale. Hire more people. Show more respect.
