Former Employee - Software Engineer

I worked at Petrofac full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The Best Part Of First Job Immediately After Your Graduation Will be Your Innocent Ignorance of the Fact that Your Seemingly Simple Ideas Have the Power to Change the Company's Future. I Have Been... Blessed to have had Opportunity to Embrace that Feeling by Having the Best Of Opportunities a Person Can Get to Explore the World Of Engineering and a Corporate Atmosphere by Working With the Most Of the Disciplines here at Petrofac. Experience is the Best Thing Ever that Can Happen to Person. You have to Win Only Once in the Whole Life. Growth Stops the Moment you have the Feel Of Winning and It's a Short term Feeling. But Playing the Game is more Important, the Whole Experience is Really Important. This is Where I Was Taught Real Definition Of Engineering and What it Takes to be a Real Engineer in Life. So the Definition that I Learnt here is that Engineering is Utilizing Knowledge and Principles to Design, Build, Analyze, Question the Basics, Not Assuming, Learning and Solving Problems and Real Engineers don't Adjust Instead they Learn, Analyze, Solve Problems and Grow up. This is the Place that Encouraged me to Always Feel Intrigued and Learn Something New Everyday. The One that I Value the Most Above Everything is that this Place Laid a Foundation to Develop One Of My Most Favorite Skillset in a Person. It's this Situation Awareness. This is the One Skillset Which I Always Wanted to Develop From My Quality Of being a Resourceful Person.

Cons

Work Life Balance is Little Off

Current Employee - Senior Automation Engineer

I have been working at JSat Automation full-time for less than a year

Pros

JSat Automation is truly the best place I've ever worked. I'm so proud to be part of this family of talented and cooperative engineers. Everyone here has a different technical background, but we all... work together to give our customers the best possible solution and help each other learn and grow along the way. We focus on the job and then grab a beer together after work. I believe I am paid fairly for the work I do. I even received a generous bonus my first year here. I joined JSat to be challenged in a new way every day. I've learned so quickly here; every project and client we work with have different requirements. My teammates set high expectations for me, but never micromanage. This is a happy place for self-driven people. When I am learning something new, my team allows me room to struggle with problems without letting me fail. So JSat has perfectly met my expectations as far as the work. I often work more than 40 hours just because I'm so engaged in whatever problem I'm trying to solve. At the same time, JSat understands that I am a human with a family and commitments outside of work. The work hours can be flexible when I have something I need to take care of.

Cons

Small companies like JSat can't offer the exact same benefits as a Fortune 500-type large company. We do not have discount programs, employee stock purchase plan, FSA, or 401(k). We do have the best... available retirement plan (an IRA with employer contributions), health/dental insurance (PPO including HSA), and vacation policies possible given the size of the company and the aggressive growth we are pursuing. If you want to zone out at a desk for 40 hours a week, this isn't the place for you! Honestly, the work environment is worth these minor trade-offs. I would still recommend JSat to a smart, hard-working friend.

Advice to Management

The company has exceptional leadership that cares about each employee and makes time to hear everyone's opinion. JSat also has a flat structure, so no one needs to sabotage another employee to get... ahead. I've never seen a company "walk it like they talk it" like JSat. I'd tell management to keep up the good work!
