Featured Review

Current Employee - Aftermarket Services Representative

I have been working at Viasat full-time for more than a year


The company culture is unbeatable, executive leadership is approachable (actually all leadership is approachable), open door policy means just that, phenomenal work life balance, the company cares... about it employees. Great benefits and you work with/around a bunch of high caliber people!


Viasat sets the standard high regarding their company culture and the people you work with! If you plan to make Viasat nothing more than a stepping stone in your career path prepare yourself to be... disappointed when you pursue employment elsewhere. This is my fourth company in my career and will be my forever employer.

Advice to Management

Keep up the excellent work; it's very exciting to see the company grow, the revenue grow, and the stock price grow!

Current Employee - Senior Firmware Engineer

I have been working at BAE Systems USA full-time for more than 5 years


Flex time to let me work when I want to. A 9/80 (or alternative) work schedule to provide 3 day weekends every other week. Good benefits. Great coworkers. Great furniture. Good hierarchy manager and... lead structure to allow for help from multiple directions. Everyone is for the warfighter and not for BAE, which focuses us on the customer, not management. 1


Over the last 4 years BAE has slowly rolled back some great benefits. Weekly to Bi-weekly pay periods and stating there's no cost difference (what about payroll??). First 10 hours over 80 hours are... free - we get no pay (4 years ago we did! ). They've removed the best Traditional health insurance program. If you are really good at your job, a golden goose, you'll constantly get pulled back to the same program which could be great, but if you don't like that program then that will push you out of BAE.

Advice to Management

Ensure your employees are happy where they are, and if they aren't then move them to somewhere they want to go, don't keep giving them raises or promotions to make them stay.
