Pros

Room for growth, smaller company but definitely a good opportunity to "stand out" in such a small industry (satcom). Many changes have been made over the years but the company is still not at a "good place" as far as financial stability is concerned. The company really needs to focus on the market and beef up the ever-shrinking sales department for more numbers. Far too much time and money is spend in marketing and not enough in sales.

Cons

Company can change ways almost overnight. Management decisions not always articulated and done on the fly. Can come of as "unstable" when there is obvious potential for future growth

Advice to Management

Communication!

    I worked at GlobeCast full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, some opportunity to grow. Luckly, parent company still has faith in the US.

    Cons

    C-Suite need to be a bit more transparent to the staff. If one member of the C-Suite does not work, then the rest must do something to make it better. Employee's morale and productivity suffers from a toxic management environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the favoritism and get to work! Stop bringing extended family members to fill in positions that could easily be filled in with much more talented people. Also stop the favoritism with managers, this will only bring the business down and the reputation to a lot worst place.

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

    Pros

    Fun team of Ingest staff, Transmission Controllers and Supervisors. Great location in Central London that is easy to get to. Nice Offices.

    Cons

    Playout staff are not well represented or championed by Playout Manager and therefore not valued by senior management. The Engineering Team assigned to service the Playout facilities are appalling and caused a number of instances that took us off air whilst I worked there. The Playout operation seemed to have expanded quite quickly over a short time, this left ill-fitted people in charge of Playout and Ingest when they grew to larger departments. There is little scope for development or progression as the old guard are coasting on better salaries and contracts that are not available now and not willing to push for improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Give some consideration to your staff and listen to the feedback given by those who are actually performing the operational roles.
