    Company is average, very little room for promotion due to size.

    Best to avoid Intelsat General, stick to Intelsat Corp or find another company.

    I worked at Intelsat General

    Pros

    Great Benefits and vacation time

    Cons

    Management lacks guidance toward effectiveness. Meetings exist for the sake of meeting but little information is ever given. They essentially live on the bootstraps of Intelsat Corporate while lacking the ability to run as an efficient independent organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your employees. Boosting morale is necessary as happy employees are good employees.

    Pros

    Good benefits but dwindling by the day. Interesting industry. Lots of smart folks in the "Engineering and Business Development jobs" and most are good to work with. Big on Customer service.

    Cons

    Very little chance for advancement, Very understaffed especially in back office. Was a very ethical organization - now not as much. Work life balance? They don't want you to put in over 50 hours per week but don't miss a deadline and they take "other things as assigned" very seriously. Constantly trying to lower pay grades by restructuring. Management has no issue in telling consistently good performing employees of 10 to 15 years or more that they can take a demoted of 3 grades or take a hike. So much for loyalty. Very low moral.

    I worked at Intelsat General full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, President is a Top Notch professional. Challenging work environment with excellent chances to excel.

    Cons

    Mid Level Management is lacking. Recent departures of key VP's has hurt the company. Some of the new "Directors" have minimal experience but have been given authority to make crucial decisions which are impacting the bottom line of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-think who you put in charge of the big three areas- Business Development , Marketing and Sales. Now under one person with one of his key directors lacking experience in corporate America and managing like he is still in the Army.
