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 Management

Loosen up!

    Pros

    By its nature, SSL brings the opportunity to work on satellite programs for worldwide customers with diverse cultural and language backgrounds. There are obvious technical challenges in meeting high tech requirements that bring out the best in engineering talent.

    Cons

    Due to its need to keep satellites operational for 15+ years on orbit, there is a tendency to depend heavily on legacy systems, so latest hardware and software are not the driving part of this technology.
