    I worked at Hughes Network Systems for less than a year

    Pros

    People are nice and friendly...their intern program is large (nearly 70 interns in 2019)...the company is headed toward more exciting times (they are collaborating with oneweb, and launching a new satellite)...the Germantown HQ is a nice facility...I received $21 per hour

    Cons

    Many of their business and development practices are outdated...there were times when I sat doing nothing during my internship (this can vary depending on your team)
