    Cons

    This is a fast moving start-up that is growing exponentially. With that comes a lot of responsibility and work. For me, this a pro, but the environment may not be for everyone.

    Pros

    Free snacks and the mission overalls a macro level is exciting.

    Cons

    There is an elephant in the room in every meeting at WhiteFox. It is that everyone is afraid of and hates the leadership. The CEO is unkind and demanding of his employees. The president and all of the department heads are from Raytheon who have come to try and improve them quickly sell the startup. The leaders don’t even get along, let alone do the employees respect or enjoy working for them.

    Pros

    The technology is interesting,-that’s it.

    Cons

    This was a cool start-up that brought on a new CEO and VP,-who have turned the place into a nightmare. If you enjoy micro-management, humiliation, embarrassment, walking on egg-shells 24/7, no job security, and an overall environment that is abrasive and fear inducing,-then you will love it here. If you do not enjoy being disrespected and treated poorly, then seriously do not work here.

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere and company culture. There is a clear and mutual respect between the different departments, teams, executive leadership, and interns. It's great to see and be a part of a team that is wholly committed to being at the leading edge of drone airspace security innovation.

    Cons

    WhiteFox is working to help build an entire industry... which is no easy feat. Because of that commitment, the work/life balance may tilt more to the work side during big pushes and releases. However, offering unlimited PTO allows the employees to manage the pushes with important health, time, and life considerations.

    Pros

    WhiteFox has made working less of a chore and more of an interest of mine. The whole team is full of smart and motivated people who are eager to help you, which makes it easy to feel like you're having a real impact at the company. Lastly, San Luis Obispo is an amazing, and underrated place to work. I see a significant amount of growth for the company as well as myself.

    Cons

    Team diversity is lacking, and company benefits can be improved. But I'm sure both of these issues will change with time.

    I have been working at WhiteFox Defense Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Exciting, dynamic, challenging, rewarding ... that's just to start. I get to work with some amazing people who are exceptionally intelligent and pleasant to be with. Everyone is treated like an adult, so there is no micromanaging, people take responsibility for their areas, and there is regular opportunity to work with other departments. This is one of the most vibrant and enjoyable companies I have been part of.

    Cons

    Not many negatives. The largest "con" would be the current office space as it is a little cramped. However the company is about to move into a larger building which will eliminate this negative.
