    I have been working at Space Systems/Loral full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -very nice coworkers
    -company sponsors a ton of internal training
    - internal switching around jobs is encouraged- that is awesome
    - management tries to give anonymous surveys and do R2D2 efforts to help the company
    - if you work hard and manage time well, you can get away with regular 40-45 work hours most weeks
    - people willing to help and answer questions

    Cons

    - very slow.. HR is slow, parts take forever to get ordered.. things to be expected of a larger aerospace company
    - moral is SUPER low currently. Most of my group is depressed with the current job, where the company is headed, and our career opportunities at Loral
    - management doesn't know how to make company more efficient
    - unfortunately we don't get bonuses or raises, although it's a possibility this year
    - company doesnt recognize people too often. If you do well, you get more work even if you are newer to the group
    - performance-based bonus, if given, is based on how many years you've worked at Loral (what sense is this making?)
    - Pay low, benefits keep slipping every half year something major gets cancelled (worsen plan for glasses and PPO medical plan this round..)
    - before major layoffs, severance package is usually worsened
    - no innovation at all - it's unfair to blame the company here, as this is primarily driven by the customer (everyone wants proven parts)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire young people from silicon valley - the risk takers, the fast-paced type that work hard and play hard. Don't just fire and re-hire the same contractors that did not do a good job previously.

    Take care of the employees working there. We all care about the company and want it to do well, but we need to know you care about us, too.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
