    Pros

    Room for growth, smaller company but definitely a good opportunity to "stand out" in such a small industry (satcom). Many changes have been made over the years but the company is still not at a "good place" as far as financial stability is concerned. The company really needs to focus on the market and beef up the ever-shrinking sales department for more numbers. Far too much time and money is spend in marketing and not enough in sales.

    Cons

    Company can change ways almost overnight. Management decisions not always articulated and done on the fly. Can come of as "unstable" when there is obvious potential for future growth

    Advice to Management

    Communication!

    I have been working at GlobeCast full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people work for this company. Small company so advancement is available but there is a ceiling if you are not french.

    Cons

    Lots of finger pointing, everyone for themselves mentality, lack of communication from management, it is not uncommon to have to work late or drop a project because of a last minute "urgent" task.

    Pros

    Great hours, friendly co-workers, hands on with equipment

    Cons

    HR is a mess, constantly cutting people to save money, isolation from main corporate office leads to a slow response time

    Advice to Management

    Firing more people doesn't improve operations, it chokes it.

    I worked at GlobeCast full-time

    Pros

    Creative culture and atmosphere provided a stable and fun place to launch a career. The benefits were above average.

    Cons

    Long hours, limited growth potential. Not a lot of opportunities for promotion. Confusion about mission and company direction. Some favoritism is apparent.

    Advice to Management

    Innovation is the key and that means developing a plan for staying relevant in the marketplace, developing potential leaders and promoting within the organization.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere. Working with many creative people from throughout the world.

    Pros

    its brand though one that's not quite known in the Americas. It provides many solutions for broadcasters who are big names.

    Cons

    confused on the company's direction. opportunity for the company to do extraordinary out of the box stuff but yet to see it.

    Advice to Management

    The company does not really have a true 'creative' center. There are many senior staff who are comfortable to remain there and bide their time.

    Low pay , constant retraining of new personnel due to low retention of experienced technical personnel.

    Retain veteran level personnel in operations that actually enjoyed the job because the pay is horrible.
