    Pros

    I was able to learn and have a lot of hands on when it comes to using equipment and being exposed to latest technology. R&D department is somewhat accessible (not like other companies) and this is good specially when you are in a position of customer service.

    Cons

    The level of organization in the company is overall very low. Things get done literally to the last minute, this sometimes could make the job unnerving.
    Salaries are not as high as the level of responsibility for the job. Lots of travelling and pressure (specially those positions facing customers in their premises) and the pay in return is not as it should be.
    The whole salary scheme in the company seems to be based on how good you can negotiate it and not to your actual development and what you bring to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the salary scheme and the yearly appraisals. Very talented people left the company just because salary issues and lack of dynamism from managers to pinpoint issues and fix them.

    Pros

    As a pioneer in the satellite industry, Gilat has been a very innovative company supported by high talented people in headquarters and regional offices. Your bosses are used to give you a good support to close deals.

    Cons

    Satellite is a niche market, so sometimes sales targets look over increased, because the company needs to improve market share in the region.

    Advice to Management

    Establishing a general strategy to spread globally the capabilities acquired in the different turnkey project deals closed in the regions.
