I have been working at Space Systems/Loral full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Hands on work with actual spacecraft. Great satisfaction seeing successful launches. Great location.

Cons

Work life balance. On-call 24/7. Senior management is not considerate of employee time off, holidays, etc. Expected to answer phone and provide support any time of the day or night.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have some compassion for your workers. We are not slaves!
