    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.

    Pros

    - 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. Shhhhhh don't be too loud! 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

    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.
