Good People, Sluggish Company
Mechanical Design Engineer, Main Body Design Group (Current Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAJune 23, 2018
There are good and talented people at SSL, though many of them have been leaving. The company is moving sluggishly and the compensation is low. The industry does not seem to have a very good future.

Decent place to work
Mechanical Design Engineer, Antenna (Current Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAMay 3, 2015
Loral is a decent place to work. They have started to listen to their employees a little more about some of the everyday problems that they have with the design of the spacecraft. I think it will be a long road to recovery but the intention seems to be there.

Positive collegial environment although we worked like dogs
Mechanical Design Engineer (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAJune 24, 2013
I loved my job but I had no life outside of work. I made the choice to travel to launch base five (plus) times per year. If I had a spouse and children this would be difficult to sustain. I save a lot of money.
I enjoyed 80% of my colleagues. The environment was collaborative and enjoyable.
