Hot and cold. Still trying to escape the bureaucracy.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
