Nice people but there are lot of negative changes with the recent change in management. There is no value of people who has stayed with the company for so long. The new management does not care about staffs.

Great company with high debt load. Hope they make it. Everyone is very helpful and willing to share. They need for the sale of their C band spectrum to happen to survive.

Great heritage communications company. Employees are smart, driven and passionate about what they are trying to achieve, and are very innovative in the fact of tremendous financial pressure.

You get to do a lot of things at Intelsat. Though the pace at times might be slow, you tend to work on a lot of things, all the time. It can be challenging. However there are very good people there and you will be part of great team.

Working at Intelsat has been interesting in that the all the OTHER moving parts seem to be doing some innovations and being able to say you work at the largest satellite company sounds cool. Then once you've been hear you keep hearing on the wind about money troubles, the way that ticketing is done is archaic at best and there is no sort of work culture. This is a workplace that has stuck by the if its not broke don't fix it mentality.

Stay away from the FP&A team, known for firing and putting employees under Performance Improvement Program for the purpose of firing them (eventually). terrible director who gossip and curse at other colleagues in their absence terrible culture within her department brought me so much anxiety. I resigned after supplying HR with all evidences varying from emails, recordings, and a blog of extremely unprofessional conversation between me and director. After I resigned HR offered me a package - unheard of. companies only offer you when you are still working with them and haven't been fired or resigned YET. however Intelsat knew they are facing a serious lawsuit.

Good management with fair direct managers. However, the company should compensate more competitively relative to the local job market. High turnover in recent years.

In past years Intelsat has been a great place at which to work. Recent changes amongst upper management have led to a change in culture with which I disagree.

Overall a good work environment, but there are some issues with downward communications. Very common problem I had, across multiple managers, was information not being disseminated until directly asked about.

Laid off

Intelsat was a great place to work, you are expected to work hard and are rewarded for it financially and with your benefits. You can advance as much or as far as you want based on your abilities and desires. While working there I saw one employee move from basically an entry-level position to vice president where he was over hundreds of employees.
Pros
Good benefits and pay and a great working environment
Cons
Hours can be tough depending on what job you hold

Great place with amazing work life balance while still offering a challenging environment. Management is great and listens to what you have to say. I would have never left if I didn't want to relocate.

The company and management gives no time for training and/or effective on-boarding for the specific job. Each company has their own process and policy that are non-standard. This company does not allow time for a new employee to learn all process needed to effective do you job.
Pros
Great Pay/Benefits
Cons
Training

Overall a good company, good environment, fun workplace with pool table and stand-up desks. The only downside is that upper management (Director and VP level) does not trust the staff with making decisions and you have to constantly prove that you are capable. Even if you go the extra mile, it's sometimes overlooked by upper management. However, a great company to begin your career.
Pros
Fun environment and location, great learning experience
Cons
Upper management lacks trust in staff

Fantastic place to work; really gives you a different vibe than most companies in the metropolitan area would. One problem with the company is the fact that the age gap is extremely big.
