    Current Employee - Senior Scientist in Honolulu, HI

    Pros

    Company embraces risk taking when it comes to innovation, knowledgeable staff of all varieties of backgrounds, are able to solve hard problems in most areas, unique culture of collegial creativity, ideas are sought from all of the staff regardless of education or degrees earned, staff are genuinely nice to work with, family atmosphere

    Cons

    Suffers from same problems faced by smaller technology firms, i.e., no funding to commercialize (venture funding) and uphill climb to gov't acquisition programs (long process), high cost of living in Hawaii not balanced by higher salaries, difficult to retain staff especially not from Hawaii (island fever).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep going, Hawaii needs more tech jobs

    Pros

    Review for S&T group. Freedom to work on what interests you. If you can bring in funding you can work on it. A wide variety of cool projects available to work on. Hawaii (quality of life is high: weather, activities, beaches, restaurants, etc.). Strong materials science, bio/nanotechnology, electrical engineering. If you have a question chances are someone in the company knows the answer- very diverse talent pool. Aloha shirts at work everyday! Some very smart employees with very good ideas.

    Cons

    Some have complained about low salaries but if you work hard and bring in funding you will be rewarded for your efforts. As a small business, funding depends on employees (yourself or your colleagues). Hawaii (cost of living is high compared to mainland). If you choose to just "coast" along, your career path could go out of your control (must take initiative).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bringing Tech jobs to Hawaii is a great thing. It is not necessarily easy but Oceanit is thriving and have built a company where people can really put their talents to work.
