      Pros

      Collaborative work environment, challenging but fun! Leadership truly cares about their employees. The company creates a culture of collaboration by providing ways to get people together, monthly company lunch and Friday social hour. People genuinely care about each other and want to help you succeed. CEO is engaged, approachable and has great vision.

      Cons

      No cons at this time!

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the great work! Ensure vision and strategic goals are disseminated down to everyone in the company. There is a sense of empowerment in knowing where we are going and how we will get there!

      I worked at KVH Industries full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      By the end, I couldn't remember any.

      Cons

      WAY too much work for $40K less than got at my next job. Very little support. Never feel any accomplishment because there's always more work than you can fit in AFTER you put in 55+ hours. Then finally leave and get hassled to pay back the tuition they paid for you, which was the ONLY nice perk of working there. Thought they cared about me.

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

      Pros

      The best thing about KVH is working with the incredibly smart people here. Employee's innovative ideas and creative solutions are highly valued. KVH is an industry leader and a successful public company - yet, this place really retains both the feel of a startup, as well as its origins as a family-oriented company.

      Cons

      A few growing pains as the company has expanded globally. Sometimes we try to do more than we can execute, but management has been much more focused the past few years.

      Advice to Management

      Keep growing, and stay focused on the big wins.

        Pros

        A very flexible working schedule can work remotely when need to attend personally issues. Management encourages you onto going to the next level of career by achieving certification in your working area.

        Cons

        Personally, location can find anything wrong.

        I have been working at KVH Industries full-time for more than 20 years

        Pros

        If you like to work in a fast paced environment this is the place for you . The company luncheons once a month are a real treat for everyone to mingle and get to know the other employees that you wouldn't normally meet . The benefit package , also including the vacation , sick and personal time are a great thing to have .

        Cons

        There is very little room for growth unless you have a degree . Job knowledge alone is not enough .

        Advice to Management

        Look at your current employees for promotions within because chances are that they have been working hard for your company for along time .
