Good place to work

Senior Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee) Palo Alto, CA

ProsCommercial Satellites, everyone needs one or two... provides good balance in life and career compared to other companies.

ConsNot Rocket science, can lag behind in latest, greatest tools and design for technology. Not cost effective in a DFM environment, new owners should change that.

Advice to Senior ManagementStay more current with Technology, current R&D staff have been sheltered too long and are not as current on the latest and greatest technologies, or they seem to reject "out of the box" thinking. Needs to be corrected by recruiting experienced DFM veterans from the industry and not new college grads who would only mimic what they are being taught.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
