    I have been working at KVH Industries full-time (More than 10 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 .

    I have been working at KVH Industries full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    KVH is an innovative technology company providing solutions in global satellite communications, navigation, and stabilization systems, for commercial and military application, as well as subscription services for charting, weather, news, and entertainment, for seafarers moving goods across the Earth's oceans. How cool is that?

    Space, technology, innovation, customer and employee experience initiatives, all in a compact, nimble global company.

    If you love playing on the water, KVH is surrounded by the ocean, with beautiful beaches, historic Newport, and the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd largest cities in New England a short drive away.

    Despite being global in size, KVH has a very "family" feel to it. Life-work balance, and community involvement make KVH a great place to work.

    Cons

    Battling for talent with other tech companies can be a challenge. Rhode Island has not traditionally been recognized as a "technology" state, like Massachusetts or California, but Rhode Island was named the 16th most innovative state in the nation in 2016. Considering the size of the state, R.I. is punching well above its weight class in innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Like every other technology company, continue to balance innovation with process improvement.

    I have been working at KVH Industries full-time

    Pros

    I am in my first year at the company, and have loved it so far. The products we offer are compelling and innovative, the people working here are great to work with, and the leadership of each department all seem to be on the same page.

    Cons

    The only difficulty I have encountered is trying to learn the business in a short period of time. We offer a very technically advanced product and it sometimes is challenging to follow along during conversations with experienced, long term employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recruit talent from all across the country and being an awesome place to work! Products continue to improve and so does our "customer first" mentality.

    Pros

    Great culture, everybody is very nice.

    Far too many meetings and managers become micromanagers.

    Pros

    great monthly luncheons, awesome positive CEO

    Cons

    Company only promotes from within if you are in sales or an engineer, everyone else stays "idle" in the same position. Don't have any special training's established for team members nor do they have a "step up the ladder" outlook. Once your in a position your basically stuck unless you know someone. ??? :(

    Advice to Management

    Foster an environment of growth for your existing employees encourage growth from within the company.
