    Pros

    Great people to work with. Can't speak to anything else as most of the founders and leaders were let go in a recent mass layoff. I would expect that has completely changed everything at KVH.

    Cons

    Regular layoffs mean a continual uneasy workforce. Company is now run by investors who's only goal is money. Innovation will not likely happen here for the foreseeable future. Zero opportunity for growth here.

    Cool place to work, short employment stint

    Mar 7, 2022 - Embedded Software Engineer in Chicago, IL

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Worked on really cool technology (fiber optic gyros), had good benefits, nice people.

    Cons

    Only worked there for ~4 months, being cut due to downsizing. They gave me a descent package though, especially given how short my employment was with them. Engineering process conflicted with the current chip shortage, but I'm guessing a lot of companies have that issue...
