Former Employee - Senior Industrial Engineer in Palo Alto, CA

I worked at Space Systems/Loral full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits, good work life balance, fantastic people to work week

Cons

Employees are not empowered to change. Not willing to innovate. Quality team has too much power, while not qualified, not available, and not held responsible. Basically quality team is no value add. Charge number systems is outdated. Computer system outdated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Revamp quality, finance, and process improvement

    Pros

    Very experienced teams, has hired lots of experienced talent at the higher levels to change the business trends and direction of the company.

    Cons

    They are a manufacturing company with little to no knowledge of how to do research or develpment, and less budgets to do so.

    Great people, but not a great work atmosphere - lacking the common coffee and water cooler type of provisions.

    I have been working at Space Systems/Loral full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very interesting work on various international space (communication satellites) projects with good people with which to work on the projects and flexible hours that are very accommodating to a young family.

    Cons

    Frequent ambiguity and shifting roles where managers are pulled away to work on special projects, and interim managers put in place. This can be leveraged to build up the next level of leaders, but often the transition is not handled well and little guidance for the interim managers. Beyond that, there is sometimes a difficult company culture, which they are aware of and trying to change.
