    Pros

    SEAKR is a family owned company that values their employees. At SEAKR we work hard and we play hard. We have great amenities on site like sand volleyball courts, a basketball court, a gym and several clubs for sports like soccer, running, and golf. There are plenty of advancement opportunities. There are great benefits like health, vision and dental insurance and a SEP IRA plan.

    Cons

    Although SEAKR is flexible on days and hours worked, it is typical to put in more than 40 hours in a week to keep up with your work load.

    Pros

    Work Hard/Play Hard mentality. There are times when more time is required to finish a project with more stress ("work hard"). There are also times when you get to "play hard" with summer leagues of volleyball, golf, basketball. Folks get together for various interest - soccer, biking, climbing, frisbee, video game competitions. It is a great environment - people helping to pitch in when needed. SEAKR just had a fabulous 4th of July party for family and friends, including food, bike parade and huge firework display. All of this with meaningful and challenging work involving space. Also community minded - the SEAKR Foundation is an amazing cause!

    Cons

    Growing company is exciting but can be stressful with change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the family culture going! It means a lot to the new employees as well as the folks who have been here for awhile.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, smart engineers, and great people

    Cons

    The owners are to say the least self absorbed, and only car about their pockets. They need to take a real around at how other companies are run. Absolute no room for advancement, and don't care about their employees.

    Pros

    Smart, motivated workers that are dedicated to getting the job done right.

    Cons

    Management wants to take the next step up, but doesn't know how. Management makes too many decisions just to appear to be different/clever. Old school style: Arrogance and manipulation by intimidation are acceptable, rigid and very limited flex time policy and bullpen work environment. Low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Respect employees, recognize hard work, be receptive to ideas and demonstrate appreciation.

    Pros

    The company does cool things- makes products that go into space. Culture is laid back and flexible. Lots of really cool and fun people to work with. Retirement benefits above average. Medical slightly above average.

    Cons

    The company runs like they are on a start up budget. Cheap everything from office furniture to toilet paper. Overcrowding in buildings makes jobs harder and limits how professional people feel without their own space. Some groups are jammed into in cubicles that barely fit a tiny desk and chair, some share cubicles, especially contractors who should still be treated as part of the team. Managers have offices bigger than they need and there is still personal items stored on site in valuable space while some space sits vacant and unused. Schedules are rushed and often understaffed, and people are moved between projects too much. Many people end up working long weekend and holiday hours without compensation. Management pushes for harder and longer work while demanding less mistakes - but they are usually not there to help out during the long hours. Employees who work the long hours never see anything for it. Burn out seems to be more frequent. Compensation is significantly below average. SEAKR benefits are said to make up the difference, but don't. Recognition, promotion and salary increase is slow.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. Provide better office environment, better training, better compensation, better tools. Pay people what they are worth, and recognize when they are working extra hard for you.

    Pros

    Design, build, test and deliver state of the art satellite computer boards Smart idea to have design and fabrication housed with test On-site volleyball courts, basketball court Almost everyone is nice.

    Cons

    Little or no opportunity to advance Salary is low compared to industry. They provide a good retirement type savings but it doesn't offset salary. Management does not support or advocate for their team members. Communication is limited and one way. A couple upper managers are insensitive and rude.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct team building Change from a fear based system to an open and respectful attitude.

    Cons

    Seakr lacks on on-going and systematic training in their MFG and Quality area. Problem-solving methods and techniques need to be applied in a more effective way.

    Implement effective training and measure progress/failures in order to accurately evaluate employees.

    Pros

    The culture is great, the benefits are good, and the kind of work done is out of this world. The owners and management have great technical backgrounds and understand what it means to be an engineer. Great ability to do a variety of types of work, and directly contribute to amazing products. Very positive work environment. Lots of opportunities to take a step back and enjoy work with onsite Volleyball and Basketball leagues and BBQs. Very flexible schedules.

    Cons

    There is a tendency for long hours. Projects are complex and challenging, and require high quality work on a tight schedule. The company doesn't hire for the short term, which is great for job security, but can lead to extra work at times when things are busy.

    Advice to Management

    No need, I can talk to them any time at work.
