A former MKT employee from Mexico City shares his/her experience working at Eutelsat in a review published by INDEED: "To grow inside the company is very hard, almost no recognition. The company is a very bureaucratic, long internal process for everything. Very bad work environment"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Eutelsat full-time Cons: stressful environment, buisiness oriented, lack of innovative approach"
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I have been working at Eutelsat full-time for more than 3 years Cons: In the technical Department there is no possibility of a growing career path and changing inside the company is very difficult. You can acquire experiences, new responsibilities in your restricted field, but always remaining in the same position and with the same job title. No big incentives if you improve your productivity or if you want to do more. This aspect is more related to the cultural way of thinking and power of the Unions in France. In their opinion, small salary increments for every employee is better than giving increments following merit and productivity."
