Crazy Place to Work
Supply Chain Analyst (Current Employee) –  Bingen, WANovember 22, 2016
Insitu is a truly crazy place to work. No management, no drive, no requirements to perform. Insitu's management is just really bad. They have no accountability, no one is required to perform their jobs. Insitu has been extremely luck to get this far. But, due to the lack of urgency or drive, they are being beat up by the competition. They do let you bring your dog to work. That's a nice thing. You don't have to really do anything, so that's nice that you have no responsibility The coworkers are actually pretty good. It's just the fact that you are out in Hood River, where everyone wants to go play, No body wants to actually work. They are a military products company. And, they have figured out ways to skirt the government FAR, DCMA and DCAA rules. Due to the small town of Hood River, there are many suppliers that are related to people who work at Insitu. This creates many conflicts of interest. They also promote many unqualified managerial folks. They use a very good old boy network and a lot of deals are done over beers at the local brew pubs.
Pros
Dogs, No responsibilty, no accountability to do your job
Cons
No accountabilty. No manegement

Needs new CFO
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Bingen, WAAugust 20, 2016
CFO is clueless what's going on and relies on everyone else and will throw everybody under the bus to cover her own mistakes. People should get the credit for the job they do and you might get the good ones to stay. A lot of people have been let go due to CFO & upper management blaming there wrong doings on them. It use to be a great place to work before this last change of CEO & CFO both have no idea what's going on and are going to cause the company to go back to Boeing then nobody will have a job. Hopefully somebody opens their eyes before all the good ones are let go and also replace the CEO & CFO with knowledgeable ones.
Pros
Location and get to bring dog to work vey casual
Cons
Poor CFO & management, medical, pay, overworked underpaid, no room for advancement, no family time or vacation unless your upper management, to many people are FIRED or LAYOFFS

PCE (Former Employee) –  Hood River, ORJanuary 7, 2016
Lots of pro's about working there. Most issues stem from the location. Lots of good engineers, the mgmt. control system seems lacking. If the owner enforces more discipline on the troops there it would be an outstanding employer.
Pros
excellent work environ
Cons
having growing pains/culture issues with long term mgmt

I didn't work there long. It was just a temp project.
Sr. Technical Writer (Former Employee) –  Bingen, WAJanuary 3, 2016
I was only there for about a year. There seemed to be a lot of turnover and disorganization. I was a contractor, which generally means I get paid more but don't get benefits. I've heard that it's a really cheap company to work for and the pay is lower than you could get elsewhere. I also know of employees who literally slept at the job from time to time because they had such tight deadlines they couldn't even drive home at night. I was one of those people.

Procurement Manager & Competition Advocate (Former Employee) –  Bingen, WAMarch 19, 2015
Getting the job done is NOT the priority! Politics and non-listening sr. management. Even when evidence is presented for substantial savings and product improvement, no action is taken.
Pros
Bonus
Cons
No advancement; Sr. management listons to no new ideas

Need better process improvement. Very few can see where we need to be heading. They know real well where we are but don't know proper supply chain principles.

Great company to go nowhere in.
Drone Repair Technician (Former Employee) –  Bingen, WAFebruary 5, 2015
Poor management. There is little to no recognition for employees who go beyond for the company. The culture there is about who you know, not what you know.
Pros
Scenery of the Gorge.
Cons
Poor pay, Poor managemnet. Good old boy network in effect.

Great for FSRs who love being deployed
Field Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Bingen, WAOctober 9, 2014
FSRs do not make money while at home. There is not much opportunity for work when you are not deployed, and training is hard to get. Promotions do not come quickly unless you know someone. Deployment pay is not what it used to be, its hard to save up money for deployment leave on what you get paid.
Pros
Field Work is good, you are given plenty of room to do your job.
Cons
Not knowing what your future holds.

Stressful work environment with unsupportive management
Buyer (Former Employee) –  Bingen, WashingtonApril 22, 2014
Cool place to work initially in a fantastic area, however, if you are a good performer, you will be overloaded with work and management will not listen to your requests for help. The good performers leave and the bad performers stay and float on by.
Pros
Flex time, relaxed environment, beautiful location
Cons
No company vision, terrible management

Good place to work
Configuration Management Specialist (Former Employee) –  Hood RiverMay 22, 2013
Work was steady and often times busy and at times demanding. Fellow employees were enjoyable. Hardest part of the job was keeping up with constant changes. However, I always enjoyed coming to work and seeing the company grow and the friendly faces.
Pros
Enjoyable seeing the changes in this company
Cons
Changes can be difficult when going through the process

Was a great place to work
Instructor (Current Employee) –  BingenFebruary 27, 2013
Insitu was a fantastic place to work prior to Boeing buying them out. The culture has changed, and is sliding down hill. Upper Management (Certain Senior Vice Presidents, Vice Presidents and Directors) are running this place into the dirt. Moral is low. Great product, horrible management. Pay and benefits are OK. Be prepared to work many hours if you are hired as salary position. Promotion track was good, but has declined over last 2 years.
Pros
great product
Cons
horrible management

Poorly ran company going down hill fast
NA (Former Employee) –  Bingen, WAFebruary 4, 2013
There is very little about this company that is still ran well. Clueless Management, good ol' boy culture, way too many cliques as if it is still High School. Good workers get more work, poor workers (esp. if they are someone's friend) get promoted. No one worth their salt stays for long.

The area is isolated and horrible, and reflected in the talent pool. The company is not going to last much longer with the way things are ran. The commute from Portland was unbearable.
Pros
bring my dogs to work, decent benefits
Cons
lack of leadership, stability, compensation, location

Cheap company, 24x7 work with no overtime pay, mostly nice people
Sr. Technical Writer (contract) (Former Employee) –  Bingen, WADecember 23, 2012
I actually liked working here. With all the negative sides to it, it is a very casual atmosphere. Wear sandles and bring your dog to work. I think they have to be this casual because it is one of the few benefits.
Pros
fun projects
Cons
low wage
