    I have been working at Space Systems/Loral full-time

    Pros

    exciting work, global travel, quality compensation/work-life balance. Working with flight hardware can be extremely rewarding, especially when your hardware is launched and begins on-orbit function.

    Cons

    risks to flight hardware(stress), legacy hardware and processes, niche experience. This is an indusry very much still living in the 50s and 60s but still on the cutting edge of technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Space Systems/Loral full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Not 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stay 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.
