    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Hughes Network Systems full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I like it. It's good. I hear complains in other departments, but in engineering people are not uptight and they let you work. I also feel like the company treats the employees fairly well, which is why you'll find people who have been here for a lot of years as well as young people planning to stay for a while

    Cons

    Not many cons to be honest

        Advice to Management

        Please add some benefits for the full-time interns and co-ops. Consider allowing remote work for the fraction of the work week.

        The company works on some really cool new age stuff and you will get to work on them if you are on the right team.
