    I worked at Space Systems/Loral full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cool stuff to work on, intelligent co-workers, good salary

    Cons

    Ups and Downs of aerospace, watch out for layoffs. Lots of program pressure, not much understanding of how to innovate products in the 21st century. Most facilities are a bit long-in-the-tooth, could use some updating.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some younger, more in-touch people to help with the R&D efforts.

    I have been working at Space Systems/Loral full-time

    Pros

    exciting work, global travel, quality compensation/work-life balance. Working with flight hardware can be extremely rewarding, especially when your hardware is launched and begins on-orbit function.

    Cons

    risks to flight hardware(stress), legacy hardware and processes, niche experience. This is an indusry very much still living in the 50s and 60s but still on the cutting edge of technology.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace IT
