    Pros

    This is a growing company with lots of opportunity to demonstrate leadership and to grow ones self professionally.

    Cons

    Processes involved in building satellites can be strict and confining. While understandable in light of the requirement for reliability in the space environment, this can be daunting for the uninitiated.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be too eager to implement whatever new fangled MBA mantra is the fashion of the day, without analyzing applicability to the satellite building low volume manufacturing environment.

    work-life is pretty awesome....only working more than 40 hours during certain phases of a program

    Cons

    bored a lot of times. if you're old, this is a perfect gig. average age of a Loral employee is 50. says it all.
