    A good high tech company that's growing quickly and still acts like a small company

    I have been working at ViaSat full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Innovation is prized, professional staff are smart and laid back. Benefits are great and the SoCal lifestyle and weather are outstanding.

    Cons

    A flat organization with no published organization charts means it can be difficult for new employees to learn who has responsibility for what projects. Base pay seems much lower than comparable Bay Area employers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on planning for growth, including building space and keeping the good culture while doing some things organizationally required of a larger company.
