    I have been working at Maxar Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    For those who get the work done and choose to pursue it, there are growth opportunities awaiting them. Being an analyst can be tedious at times, but there are opportunities to step up, take on more responsibilities, or go above and beyond. You also get to work in a collaborative environment, side by side with your colleagues. Being a part of a team and offering and receiving the support of those around you is invaluable as a job asset.

    Cons

    Management can sometimes struggle to communicate clearly with their employees. As Maxar Technologies continues to merge its 4 separate business units over the course of 2019, there are understandable growing pains as management from the top down tries to settle in and shake out all the kinks that come with finding our corporate identity as One Maxar.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate often and clearly with all levels of employees at your company, and always be as transparent as possible.
