    I have been working at ViaSat full-time (more than a year)


    Employees fairly well respected. Knowledge and use fo knowledge is rewared. Very good benefits. Pay is adequate. Work is challenging and engaging.


    There are plenty of large heads that steer projects in emotionally or power driven directions. People with no skills in a specific area are given the power to rule over groups in that area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the people with experience and knowledge instead of the people you play golf with.

    Interview Details

    Submitted a resume online and was contacted by a recruiter a couple weeks afterward setting up a phone interview. The interview was approximately 2 hours and consisted of the interviewer asking questions based on the projects written on my resume, what level of involvement I had in them, what sort of skills I used, etc. A few weeks after that I had another 30 minute interview sorting me into a specific team of the company. Finally I was presented with an offer that I accepted.

    Interview Questions
    • All the questions asked were very open-ended, leaving it to me to answer them as generally or as technically as I wanted. For example: "What was your favorite question on a physics homework assignment?"   Answer Question
