I have been working at Space Systems/Loral full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Hands on work with actual spacecraft. Great satisfaction seeing successful launches. Great location.

Cons

Work life balance. On-call 24/7. Senior management is not considerate of employee time off, holidays, etc. Expected to answer phone and provide support any time of the day or night.

Advice to Management

Have some compassion for your workers. We are not slaves!

    The decisions made by management are very questionable. It is very clear that management plays favorites.

    They are a manufacturing company with little to no knowledge of how to do research or develpment, and less budgets to do so.
