    Pros

    Colleagues were nice if you know nothing and have a high tolerance for b.s I mean sky scrapper high then by all means

    Cons

    Not sure what amount of money they paid previous workers to say it was a good place to work but It must have been a lot.......Cause the one thing you will hear is a whole Lot of complaining about how much that place sucks.

    Management was very undermining,Sexual Indiscretions among Managers and Coworkers were turned a blind eye
    Morale was low cause nobody cared,Hr was one of the worst of any job and I'm not exaggerating they were so incompetent it'll make your head spin.The company has been renamed SAGENET,Much like when you live in an apt complex after a murder and they change the name for image sake but trust me its business as usual over their,

    This place will SUCK THE LIFE OUT OF YOU.Be prepared to be treated like an IMBECILE DAILY, The way they treat employees should be illegal you may get a position one day to have it taken away the next with out as much as a notice.
    If you ever saw horrible bosses, the office or any other movie about the mundane idiot bosses then come here and meet them in person here,Think I'm exaggerating then by all means dig a career hole and bury yourself in the grave that is Spacenet...or sagenet or what ever they are calling themselves these days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    They are laid back eventhough they are aware of how important their role is for their clients

    Cons

    You need to KNOW satellite and satellite transmission and telecommunication. You cannot go in without any knowledge, and there is no program to learn.

    Pros

    Looks great on the outside, plenty of promises and smiles from ear to ear.

    Cons

    Rotten and disgusting on the inside. Management is very immature and politically driven, it is very much like one big minefield - who should I be friend with today? who's the next one to be fired? every day feels like a mind game and if you don't play it right you might find yourself outside it that very same day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new influential and inspirational managers. The company misses leadership and a "father figure" to lead it. It is that same management that recently made some bad decision based on even worse advice it got from opportunists that now seized power and control over the company.
