    Employment at KVH

    Pros

    Work with high tech stuff, some great personalities there, reasonable salaries for rhode island but read cons for the negatives. Location is in Newport great only in the summer, lots to do. Company parking. Lunch first wednesday every month. Social Gatherings every friday.

    Cons

    Very long work hours, sometimes 60 to 80 hours of work and no compensation for the overtime. Make sure everything agreed on is in the job offer, I requested comp time when getting hired they said they will work it out and when I asked for it, they said they will not allow it. If you have to work all that time make sure you request high salary. You have to negotiate all terms upon getting hired, they will not care afterwards. Be careful what you say or do there, once you are on their bad side you are there permanently. My supervisor was trying to move up to an executive position and decided to overwork his employees and not compensate them for all that work. Company has a great future but can only achieve it if things change in it especially management. $500 deductible on insurance.

    Pros

    Friendly and collegial environment with lots of smart people doing interesting things. CEO is very visible, engaged, and committed to keeping the company successful.

    Cons

    Too much middle management. Location isn't ideal if you're looking for a city, but good for sailors and anyone who loves the outdoors. Not too many young people working here.

    Lack of diversity Lack of growth opportunities for career advancement Low salaries with small benefit packages compared to other companies Favoritism is rampant Frequent opposition to change and new ideas Very negative work environment, frequent 'talk behind your back' Very short staffed; workers are often burned out with amount of work Senior management is 'old-fashioned', most being with the company for their whole career

    Fast paced, great people, great location; sky's the limit if you dive in and take responsibility

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great place for self-directed individuals. Company is always working on the newest technology and pushing into new fields and areas, so never a dull moment. Not a place for someone who wants to be closely directed and isn't comfortable with diving in and making decisions. Diverse product offering so lots of opportunity within the company to find an area of concentration that you really want to focus on and then ask management to let you! Located in one of the most beautiful places in the world; surrounded by the natural beauty of the ocean which is a great balance to the high-paced office and provides a great release. Commutes are easy and scenic.

    Cons

    Very lean company without a lot of middle management so you work hard here and are pulled in many directions. Management expects that you are on top of what you are doing and there are lots of areas to focus on so must learn how to juggle on your own and not expect to be told where you should be focusing.
