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

    Pros

    Raven cares about its team members and pushes them to succeed to the best of their abilities. My supervisor encourages and supports me to develop and learn additional skills outside of my typical role. This company stands behind their values and dimensions of competition.

    Cons

    None that I can recall

    Raven offers a great opportunity to have a successful career, making great $ and still keep that healthy work/life balance.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Raven Industries full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    None for Raven Aerostar. I'm still in shock at how they ruined the DC office. I feel sorry for my former co-workers still stuck there every day.

    Cons

    Raven Aerostar effectively ruined the wonderful team that was Vista Research in Arlington, VA. Mismanagement and uncaring for employees to the extreme. Any good benefit Vista had Raven tried to remove.
