    I worked at Cobham SATCOM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company with various internal career mobility

    Cons

    Learning curve is fairly short considering the technology needed to learn.

    Advice to Management

    Turnover rate for management is very high, so it is challenging for sales team's moral and to remain focused on targets.

    I have been working at Cobham SATCOM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Well...it was a paycheck. And that's pretty much it.

    Cons

    Deliberately holding back qualified people and promoting unqualified, or poor performers for reasons to ugly to mention. Too bad...job was close to home, certain people were intolerable...very blue collar, low class work environment.

    Advice to Management

    You know who is doing the harassing, unwarranted verbal abuse and attacks (to make the high performers look bad and make certain other people look good) Do SOMETHING rather than just play along with it. Look at where you were and where you are now. There is a reason for that!

    Pros

    None that come to mind.

    Cons

    Toxic working environment with backbiting coworkers. HR that endorses the cliques and doesn't care about facts. Need the paycheck, the job itself is not career fuel.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. What are you waiting for?

    There's usually candy at the front desk.

    I worked at Cobham SATCOM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was a wonderful company when there was a GM who cared about it. We knew what we were being told was the truth and he would fight for the employees no matter your job level. He held his senior management team accountable. The employees greatly respected him and would work very hard for him. That was when the company had integrity and ethics. But that is the past!

    Cons

    This is now a company ruled by an "iron-fist", a single person with no morals or integrity who has systematically gotten rid of anyone that opposed him and has now stacked the deck with like minded individuals.

    Advice to Management

    What goes around will come around, I hope you land on your feet.
