Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC

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

Pros

Exposure to international business transactions; Interesting company offerings in the telecommunications industry; multi-cultural staff which was always interesting and challenging (in a good way); fast paced environment; work with talented staff; very good benefits; on-site medical unit open to staff which eliminates the need to leave the office for an appt.; convenient to Metro; CEO Awards program was a great way for the company and your peers to recommend you and a team for recognition; annual bonus

Cons

Management seemed a bit unprepared or unsupported to lead and manage effectively; depending on the department, the workload was imbalanced leaving it sometimes difficult to achieve a real, true, work - life balance. Depending on the department, career paths not always clear and management wasn't always prepared to support employee growth or mentor staff

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change things up a bit in every way; Emphasize and require higher standards of working together with other departments (within the ever present politics that exist in every company); Try offering more no-cost benefits to staff to compensate for the high stress environment some folks find themselves in (like telework, flex time, etc).

    Current Employee - Flight Dynamics Engineer in Washington, DC

    I have been working at Intelsat full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Current location, plenty of work, flexible hours and dress code, liberal leave policies, friendly, international workforce, many opportunities for expanding your experience, exposure to the myriad facets of satellite operations, sales, capacity management, etc

    Cons

    The new location in Tyson's is not optimal for commuters. The compensation is on par with the industry, but does not seem to try to be in the top percentage of salaries.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Hagerstown, MD

    I have been working at Intelsat full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits package comparable to other industry leaders, and the name recognition of the company. Experienced employees willing to work with and train less experienced team members. The current 12 rotating shift schedule.

    Cons

    Lower management refuses to stand up to upper levels of management in the interest of their employees. There is a lot of playing favorites in the company. Company sponsored training is almost non existent. Frequent change just for the sake of change, not to improve any processes. Lack of interest from management on work and equipment installations being done and documented correctly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a little bit of time to listen to your employees and try to do something once in a while to show that you appreciate the work they put in. Stand up for their best interest once in a while instead of always looking for the cheapest way out.
