I worked at LiveTV full-time (More than 5 years)
Interesting work, great people, competitive salaries, competitive benefits. The work is very interesting and 98% of the people are fantastic. The salary and benefits are (at least used to be) on the high side for the area. (Disclaimer: Now that it is Thales, unknown if still the same)
If you are one of the "golden" people you are good to go - but if you're not...look out. Favoritism abounds here. If you are lucky you can keep your head down do your work and enjoy your job and the good people that are there.
Advice to Management
Get rid of top management that don't know how to manage and all the favoritism. Nearly of the original people from Harris don't know how to manage. They started the company and they're in the top positions by default, not skill. Now that it is Thales, hopefully it's being fixed.
