Incredible to be designing, manufacturing and launching satellites but old male-dominated environment.

Pros

Generally, you work with many very nice and talented people. You learn a lot about satellites.

Cons

You work a lot of overtime. The culture is old and very male-dominated. Working remotely is rather shunned upon by most departments that should allow it. The environment is too fast-paced for balancing with family. Bonuses are small and sometimes do not feel worth working so much overtime for.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Loosen up!

    Pros

    Very open management, lots of upward mobility if you put in the time. Very cool product if you are interested in high tech/science stuff, the science behind it all is pretty amazing.

    Cons

    Lower end salary for this position when compared to many companies throughout the Bay area. Good starting point though to move on to bigger and better companies.
