    I worked at Inmarsat full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company provides great training in many areas to assure one's success. Supervisors allow direct reports to take on or participate in projects outside the department's objectives with the purpose of allowing the employee to grow. Benefits are competitive and work from home is acceptable when needed.

    Cons

    If the Sales department says so.... Then it must be true. Even if data shows otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Decent pay, interesting work limited travel, nice area to work (northern VA), challenging work, could definitely improve to aomething worthwhile

    Cons

    Management thinks only of itself. Operations personnel left flapping in the with with minimal support. Increase in work volumes while decreasing of personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Think more of the operations side of thinga, your running on a skeleton crew with only 2 rf engineers and no coverage NOC if someone gets sick...

    Pros

    Some of the people are good.

    Cons

    Merger of Segovia and Inmarsat. Segovia is a older group that is outdated and lacks any skills to run a business.

    Advice to Management

    Replace all Segovia management. They are destroying the company. They have no skills no resources and lack any direction.

    Business Units at all levels and regional sites need to be more synchronized. Engineering and operations leadership need to be on the same wave across the board and all levels

    Pros

    the people are world class and the product set sells itself.They are always innovating and are very financially secure. this is a great place to establish a career

    Cons

    Promotion from within is okay at the lower levels, but not at the executive level, which is a shame and why they lose great people. Can be very bureaucratic,, but to be expected given their heritage. Does not mean it can't change.

    Advice to Management

    Be more serious about developing your internal staff and promote from within for senior leadership roles.

    Understand and appreciate the employees who actually maintain your day-to-day business. They are morally dependent on these interactions and it shows.
