    I worked at KVH Industries

    Pros

    Good programs for wellness and health through BCBS
    Catered lunch served once a month at the Rhode Island global headquarters

    Cons

    Lack of diversity
    Lack of growth opportunities for career advancement
    Low salaries with small benefit packages compared to other companies
    Favoritism is rampant
    Frequent opposition to change and new ideas
    Very negative work environment, frequent "talk behind your back"
    Very short staffed; workers are often burned out with amount of work
    Senior management is "old-fashioned", most being with the company for their whole career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Workers should be appreciated more for all the work they do to keep this company running, look further into hiring more diversity, most employees are dissatisfied and something must be done to improve the morale of the company.

    I have been working at KVH Industries

    Pros

    KVH doesn't hesitate to jump into new business opportunities. This makes for a very dynamic and exciting place to work.
    The company is family oriented, in a great location, and is GROWING with enough diversity to keep growing. Hard to say that in this economy!

    Cons

    Growth means change; change can sometimes be uncomfortable, but it is never boring.
    There's not a lot of time to "rest on your laurels". Once a goal is achieved there are more waiting to be hit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the teams focused and working together to grow the new businesses in communications, stabilization and guidance products. Celebrate more!
