    I worked at KVH Industries

    Pros

    Friendly and collegial environment with lots of smart people doing interesting things. CEO is very visible, engaged, and committed to keeping the company successful.

    Cons

    Too much middle management. Location isn't ideal if you're looking for a city, but good for sailors and anyone who loves the outdoors. Not too many young people working here.

    I have been working at KVH Industries full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great place for self-directed individuals. Company is always working on the newest technology and pushing into new fields and areas, so never a dull moment. Not a place for someone who wants to be closely directed and isn't comfortable with diving in and making decisions. Diverse product offering so lots of opportunity within the company to find an area of concentration that you really want to focus on and then ask management to let you! Located in one of the most beautiful places in the world; surrounded by the natural beauty of the ocean which is a great balance to the high-paced office and provides a great release. Commutes are easy and scenic.

    Cons

    Very lean company without a lot of middle management so you work hard here and are pulled in many directions. Management expects that you are on top of what you are doing and there are lots of areas to focus on so must learn how to juggle on your own and not expect to be told where you should be focusing.

    Pros

    The executive management vision does lead to best in market products. The technology is state of the art. The company continues to expand market share

    Cons

    There is a continual tread mill environment in engineering due to under resourcing and a lack of inspirational leadership at the middle management level which leads to a stressful environment and general morale issues.
