Pros

Very interesting technical work. May not be as glamorous as Google or Apple, but if you were truly interested in technology that provides tangible benefits to the world, then this type of infrastructure work is actually very rewarding.

Cons

Extremely heavy workload. Schedules are very aggressive and tight and a lot of work is done in parallel. Obviously the problem with doing work in parallel is sometimes the results of the analysis doesn't correlate well to the design and the design has to be restarted from scratch.

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

    Pros

    Fun co-workers. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    No innovation. No personal growth. Poor management at all levels from lower to upper. Management does a very poor job with planning for highs and lows in staffing needs. Employees end up being overworked in busy times, a lag in hiring occurs, finally sufficient hiring is done, but it is too late and layoffs occur.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more consideration of employee needs and concerns. Address issues with low moral throughout company.
