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 Management

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).

    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.

    Pros

    Benefits are alright. For now.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. Lots of lying, stalling and fudging of numbers. Do them a few personal favors and they'll throw other people's money at you to keep the favors flowing. Area is high crime, too. Maybe it's contagious.
