Interesting Mix of Corporate Cultures

Software Engineering (Former Employee) Carlsbad, CA

ProsThere are innovative ideas at play at ViaSat. The company is fast-growing, and is extremely diverse in the fields they explore. ViaSat contracts with the government, but also offers consumer and commercial products and services.

There are so many divisions of ViaSat, one may find exactly what they're looking for in either Satellite Communications, IT, Finance, Human Resources, or many other business segments.

ConsMy experience with the company was plagued somewhat by bureaucracy, an issue evident in most larger companies. The project I worked on seemed somewhat ill-defined, as an endeavor to develop methods to connect the many different business areas at ViaSat.

The diversity of ViaSat's pursuits can sometimes stifle its growth, as a lack of communication between its business areas can lead to difficulty in management.

Advice to Senior ManagementOverall, ViaSat's strengths and weakness both come from its diversity. I would advise that more be done to facilitate communication between business areas, in the form of software and infrastructure. Currently, many such tools have been deployed, but are underutilized.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
