      Pros

      Working within the marketing department at KVH has been an engaging and career-enhancing opportunity. I can honestly say that I enjoy coming into work each day and collaborating with smart colleagues in a challenging, healthy, and dynamic work environment. It’s fulfilling to know that our products and the work we do make a difference in the lives of our customers. As a global industry leader, our satellite products, internet service, sensors, and inertial systems help power safer and productive operations for the maritime and defense industry. They also improve the qualify of life and boost morale for global seafarers. KVH products continue to evolve and expand and offer employees endless opportunities to learn and grow. Management is encouraging, considerate, and supportive of a healthy work-life balance. The benefits and employee perks at KVH are very generous. In addition to the wonderful health and 401k offerings, employees enjoy weekly Friday happy hours and monthly catered lunches. Our offices are clean and modern, and I enjoy the ergonomic sit-stand desks.

      Cons

      No defined work from home opportunities

      - Innovative Company - Inertial Nav esp. - Friendly work culture - frequent hellos and goodbyes by fellow KVHers - nice people in general. - Modern technology is everywhere - Decent amount of data to work with - across departments - No lack of projects. In fact, there's a lot of work to be done - Anytime Fitness member perk that is also right next door - Yoga and Meditation classes on site - Nice, well kept campus - Decent Pay - You get a bonus - Good Benefits - Highly corporate culture, if you're into that kinda thing. - The CEO is cordial - There's a spaceship coffee machine...there really should be more than one.

There's a demo in the media center! - Treats on Fridays - Ruffles, Goldfish, M&Ms, Cheesepuffs(seriously tho?), soft drinks, hard drinks, and big jenga. - Free lunch one day a month where they do a raffle - Career pathing and advancement opportunities are emerging - "Open door policy-ish" - You interact with a ton of stakeholders and directors - In a good location if you're local to Aquidneck Island.

      Cons

      - General feeling of discombobulation, and suspicion across departments - and across the pond. - One is heard, but not listened to - Hard work is acknowledged, but not rewarded - Little budget for employee education - Lots of hallway chatter/politics - Pretty conservative
