    I worked at Inmarsat full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    the people are world class and the product set sells itself.They are always innovating and are very financially secure. this is a great place to establish a career

    Cons

    Promotion from within is okay at the lower levels, but not at the executive level, which is a shame and why they lose great people. Can be very bureaucratic,, but to be expected given their heritage. Does not mean it can't change.

    Advice to Management

    Be more serious about developing your internal staff and promote from within for senior leadership roles.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Inmarsat (Orlando, FL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter was too focused on salary requirements.
    First phone interview, half hour with senior employee, indicated potential match.
    Second phone interview with less senior employee clearly showed the company does not agree on what they want and some of them are on a quest for a purple porpoise.
    They declined the 3rd step of a skills test; I would likely have aced the test but declined any offer due to low salary and indications of a poor work environment.
