Space Systems/Loral is a great place to work.

ProsOnce employed, there are substantial opportunities for LATERAL movement allowing engineers and other technical staff to introduce themselves to new fields and job descriptions. Depending on position within the company, there are opportunities to travel abroad.

ConsThere is a large disconnect between departments which is typical of a company this size, but still an inconvenience. Additionally, their cafeteria SUCKS!

Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership is making great strides in streamlining the company and improving management - staff relations. My advice is they continue down that road.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    There are too much unreasonable expectations and deadlines to perform tasks and assignments.
