Mission: Create industry-leading integrated systems that collect, process and distribute information for existing and expanding customer markets.
At Insitu, we are first and foremost driven by our purpose, also known as our “Why statement”:
Insitu exists to pioneer and innovate in all that we do so we positively impact people’s lives and change the course of history.
We have also identified four pillars that are foundational to bringing this statement to life, achieving our vision and our mission and ensuring that we are doing all that we can to build up not only advanced technologies, but each other. They are Pioneer, Perform, Unite and Care. We recognize these pillars as the definition of the Insitu culture and in support of them, we have defined our Values, which are the behaviors that enable any one of us to be successful.
Living to our Pillars and our Values sets us up for success in not only fulfilling why Insitu exists, but our ability to achieve our goals while delivering on that Why for our global customers. Additionally, through Simon Sinek’s Start With Why program, we offer the opportunity to all of our employees to discover their personal Why statement and apply it to their day-to-day-activities.

*9/80 Schedule and Active Fridays
A majority of our company operates on a 9/80 schedule, meaning most employees have every other Friday off. Insitu hosts various free events through the 9/80 Active Friday Program, to encourage employees to experience the awesome places we call home.
We invite well-behaved dogs to accompany their parents to work in several of our facilities. We believe this leads to a more pleasant and productive work environment and encourages our employees to get to know each other through their pets.

I have been working at Insitu full-time (Less than a year)
Solid colleagues here-everyone is so kind and supportive. The culture is one of success and caring. They have four pillars to the culture and they walk the talk when it comes to culture. When I joined I could never have predicted how happy I am today. It takes a leap of faith to join a company like this that isn't a big consumer name but I love that I'm part of something with a great mission.
Lots of acronyms. Get the app and it gets easier. Snow and ice in the gorge can be a bummer.
Advice to Management
Keep focus on transparency. Have high expectations of employees.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Insitu (Bingen, WA) in June 2016.
Was flown to Bingen for the Interview. I was sent a schedule of who would meet me where for the different parts and the first person was not available. The employees recovered quickly and sent me to the correct location for the interview. Interview was very proffessional and lasted approximately 1 hour.
