    Current Employee - Operations Technician in Ellenwood, GA
    Current Employee - Operations Technician in Ellenwood, GA

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

    Pros

    You receive a shift differential and weekend pay. Holidays are double pay if you work them.

    Cons

    Expect to work Holidays. Expect to work overtime. Work/Life balance has fallen by the wayside. The management will lie to your face and will not listen to any complaints. You can not turn to supervisors for any technical advice, that is if they are even present that day. The rate of advancement is dismal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn a bit more about your employees. Stop assigning busy work. Learn to organize your employees to make better use of their skills. Make the requirements to be a supervisor to be proficient in your technical knowledge for the field they are working in.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    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).
