Hot and cold. Still trying to escape the bureaucracy.

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

Pros

Some good people, overall great compensation and benefits. Good respect from industry and customers.

Cons

Very siloed, and stuck in the 1970's bureaucracy. Missed a real opportunity with the PanAmSat acquisition to escape the Intelsat mindset, but many of the PanAmSat leaders have left leaving older bureaucrats to do the work. Fortunately the industry is not very innovative so it's not a big problem. But they're missing so many opportunities to really excel.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get some senior-level youth in the company and listen to them. Innovate. Promoting and awarding the same people year after year gets very old.

    I have been working at Intelsat

    Pros

    The company is extremely social and people talk to each other all the time. Very friendly. Management isn't too bad as well.

    Cons

    The tech is slightly outdated and pretty conservative about supplies.The supplies are also really dirty and often don't work.

    ad-hoc decision making, management challenges - managers are task oriented, and do whatever their superiors tell them
