    I worked at Sats full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are good people in there, willing to help and willing to work. Many will share tips on how to make your workload bearable. Remember, no matter which department you are, to take your share of work and pain, to work WITH people, and you will be fine. If you keep your life simple and control your expenditure, you will see your account book be in the black.

    Cons

    Plenty of OT - Take your share, no more! Tight work schedules - Again, take your share and no more! Severe manpower shortage - This will SERIOUSLY affect you if you are at the front lines. Terrible work-life balance - True in any operations branch, not so in the ivory tower that is management. Stressful - and no kidding here! Company is run like a military organization , which is not surprising considering a... lot of ex-military join up or are brought in. Management has a very high opinion of itself, and believes it can do no wrong (when most of said wrongs stem from their refusal to resolve underlying issues).

    Advice to Management

    Treat your ground, front and operations staff better. They are the ones who have to do the heavy lifting, and who work under trying conditions. Pushing the blame to them all the time for problems YOU cannot resolve (due tight manpower and time constraints) over the years is both unprofessional and childish. Work WITH them! Trim the fat from the top. Improve pay levels and benefits for the rank and file. Be more... empathetic and forgiving of mistakes (as severe fatigue, exhaustion and overstretched resources contribute to messes big and small). Improve inter-departmental communications. Give credit where it is due (instead of hoarding it all) and take blame when it is deserved (which will NEVER happen for reasons known to all)
