    Pros

    Great people work for this company. Small company so advancement is available but there is a ceiling if you are not french.

    Cons

    Lots of finger pointing, everyone for themselves mentality, lack of communication from management, it is not uncommon to have to work late or drop a project because of a last minute "urgent" task.

    Pros

    Small division of France Telecom. Global Network backbone for parent company ensures some stability.

    Cons

    Upper level management positions are often granted to members of parent company. If the smaller division does not fare well as a result of this management, that person is simply transferred back into the fold of the larger organization.

    Pros

    The only pro would have been location in Culver - the actual location (pre re-model) was terrible, old, dirty.

    Cons

    No responsible for ones actions - no support from immediate management. Terrible environment of people looking out for themselves. Little to no team dynamic, lacking severly in any type of corporate culture / team dynamics.

    Pros

    Reasonable acomodation within a year of employment, good supervisors and experienced good rapport with the all the globally based customers (North, South America/Caribbean, Europe,Asia and Australia ) ensuring quality of all play out and pass through signals monitored and maintaining communication open with all parties involved with all multilingual customers.

    Cons

    Low pay , constant retraining of new personnel due to low retention of experienced technical personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Retain veteran level personnel in operations that actually enjoyed the job because the pay is horrible.

    Pros

    Room for growth, smaller company but definitely a good opportunity to "stand out" in such a small industry (satcom). Many changes have been made over the years but the company is still not at a "good place" as far as financial stability is concerned. The company really needs to focus on the market and beef up the ever-shrinking sales department for more numbers. Far too much time and money is spend in marketing and not enough in sales.

    Cons

    Company can change ways almost overnight. Management decisions not always articulated and done on the fly. Can come of as "unstable" when there is obvious potential for future growth

    Advice to Management

    Communication!

    Pros

    Nice location. Flexible working conditions

    Cons

    Culture of blame and pessimism. No investment in people.

    Advice to Management

    The culture of the company needs to improve. Invest in your staff and create a positive attitude.

    Pros

    because of its big brand name being affiliated to France Telecom you can coast by by just showing up at your desk, but you cannot grow.

    Cons

    It's shocking that a high level senior executive does not get reprimanded when he made a racial slur regarding a competitor. Also, one sales executive happily checks out female customers' facebook profiles to see how they look like before he visits them.

    Pros

    Central location, great transport links, close to other places you can go for interviews so you get out if there fast, that's about it.

    Cons

    Unfriendly working atmosphere, working hours can change at last minute, horrendous management and stuck up staff that have been there for too long.

    Advice to Management

    Your Hr department really should be dealing with the managers that keep hitting on women at work, this really is a nuisance and embarrassing to watch. Especially when they're married (the managers). And then there's the people from accounts/Hr that are so out of order with their racist and snide remarks/jokes that I'm surprised no one has taken you to court yet. Replace the old staff and management, they don't care anymore and are biased to people they know and are friends with. Many great colleagues have left because of them. There is no scope for growth or any other moves within the company, as the management judge you for who you know, what you do, or who you sleep with. It's a total joke! Glad to be gone from such a messy, backstabbing and close minded place.
