I have been working at Space Systems/Loral (Less than a year)

Pros

Smaller company, executives are accessible, cafeteria is good, flexible hours, benefits are okay, Bay Area is great.

Cons

There is a lot of "who's on first". People do not come to meetings on time. Lots of people use the phone instead of email which is archaic and inefficient when a lot of people travel.

Advice to Management

I think management is doing a good job. My supervisor is accessible and good at giving constructive criticism.

    I worked at Space Systems/Loral full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very challenging work with "bleeding edge" technologies, working with some of the most brilliant people in the field.

    Cons

    Clueless management, only interested in the next contract (rather than providing quality on current ones). Almost always over-committing -- promising to deliver insane amounts of work to an impossibly short schedule, and never learning the lesson even though we constantly failed to meet schedule and constantly over-ran.

    Pros

    Once employed, there are substantial opportunities for LATERAL movement allowing engineers and other technical staff to introduce themselves to new fields and job descriptions. Depending on position within the company, there are opportunities to travel abroad.

    Cons

    There is a large disconnect between departments which is typical of a company this size, but still an inconvenience. Additionally, their cafeteria SUCKS!

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is making great strides in streamlining the company and improving management - staff relations. My advice is they continue down that road.
