Excellent Place to work

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Carlsbad, CA

I worked at ViaSat

ProsThe culture and environment at ViaSat are geared towards making the employee happy and willing to excel with new opportunities and positions. They are willing to move people from one position to another if they think that the new position will be a good fit.

ConsSometimes the management does not see the individual work being done and can overlook competent people. There is a culture of long hours on many projects and a common 'work more to finish it on time' attitude. This can burn people out.

Advice to Senior ManagementWatch out for the people on the projects that are running late or in trouble as those are the employees who are most likely to run away when the system starts to grind on them. These can be some of the best and brightest.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
