    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Hughes Network Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Laid back work environment 2. salary so-so 3. good for beginners

    Cons

    1. too old fashioned, dependent on documentation/work that was done 10-20 years ago 2. new ideas are not always encouraged 3. disorganized 4. sub-continent style work culture, you will feel like you work in a government office in india 5. no work from home, no flexibility, you have to maintain the work hours, your work doesn't matter, but if u are just sitting there all day chatting and FBing, that's ok 6.... Horrible health benefits, tiny gym 7. Not enough opportunities for learning

    Advice to Management

    The company needs a renovation, dont just hire new graduates, give them scope to implement their ideas and PLEASE, allow work from home, in these days of technology, it shouldn't matter where we are working from, as long as the work is getting done
