Great atmosphere with substantial management deficiencies
IT Procurement Analyst (Former Employee) – Carlsbad, CA – January 19, 2019
Hellova fun place to work, but sorely lacking in any documentation, training support, and management skill. Opportunities for advancement were there, but rare. If you did a good job in your role they were very reluctant to promote you. Great campus though.
Technician (Current Employee) – Carlsbad, CA – December 1, 2018
Constantly hearing how they encourage employees to seek opportunities within the company where their skills experience may more appropriately apply. Haven't found that to be true at all. After almost a year and having applied to other positions where my skills would better fit and being ignored, It appears time to move on to greener pastures. W10 is the facility that Viasat forgot..
No pressure to do anything. Good beni's, Lot's of perks (so I hear)
No opportunity for advancement. Skill levels up the hierarchy are backwards
Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee) – Carlsbad, CA – November 27, 2018
Highly recommend. Open environment with very encouraging leaders that listen and really want you to succeed. Appreciate the flexibility in that you can work outside the office and avoid the traffic. Good environment. Very happy to work here.
Prototype Assembler (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – November 19, 2018
The pay was ok . Management was very unprofessional. Their ongoing and professing at maintaining their "good culture" is an absolute FACADE! Just like mentioned in other reviews, this place has a very poor working environment. Beware of this location to work it. Run for the hills if you are contacted as a potential candidate
RF/Microwave Engineer - Intern (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – November 16, 2018
- Lots of simulations in HFSS as an intern - Learned how to use electromagnetic theory learned in school to practical, cutting edge devices and solve related issues - Great culture! lots of activities available (e.g. Volleyball, ping pong, gym, others) - Hardest part of the job was learning completely new skills that I wasn't taught in school. I believe that even though I had not taken a microwave engineering course prior to my internship, I was expected to know about it more than I already did. My supervisor helped me alot throughout the internship though
Technical Support Representative (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – October 29, 2018
Enjoyed the work environment and corporate culture. Management and co-workers are both supported and helpful. Management showed sincere interest in employee's learning curve and invested necessary time required to insure employee success. I rate this company 5 stars.
Evolving technologies with new learning opportunities
NOC Supervisor / Technician (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – October 16, 2018
In that where you fall determines your value, and it's easy to fall in the 0 or 10 ring. There certainly are people who enjoy their jobs and what they do - they are a pleasure to work with; but most folks are dissatisfied with many aspects of daily work life. I've been able to learn and develop a few new skills that I am eager to sharpen elsewhere.
Rub shoulders with some very smart people
Teams are not on the same page. Lack of accountability. Disorganized management structure.
Quick Paced job and a lot of room to promote and work overtime.
Corporate Call Center (Former Employee) – Englewood, CO – October 15, 2018
I worked with some amazing people. Management at the time was not ideal . My supervisor was amazing but our boss at the time treated woman unfairly. I had felt singled out many times and my boss was treated unfairly.
A higher starting wage and a lot of overtime.
High stress and unreasonable deadlines for amount of work given.
Telephony Operations Lead (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – September 3, 2018
In my tenure ship with the company I've learned many skills, systems, process, but all did not compare to the most import part, which was taking care of the customer. The customer experience with the products offered was my focus, therefore I made sure that I was able to resolve customer issues quickly fort he customer and efficiently for the company.
Computer Operator (Current Employee) – Remote – August 28, 2018
Viasat is a great place to work and grow! It's a fast growing company and it is evident in the work place. So, there's some restructuring going on so the people are in the right roles needed as Viasat grows.
Technician (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – August 4, 2018
Not a good place to work. Low pay, lousy managers and no upward mobility. The good side was that coworkers were loose and friendly and culture was pleasant. Allowed flex hours, basketball games. Manager never listens to new ideas, and puts the blame on you for their incompetence. If they want you out they will devise a plan to get rid of you.
Lots of free food and drinks. Flexible work hours.
Quality Assurance Intern (Former Employee) – Duluth, GA – August 1, 2018
Viasat has an outstanding culture and treat their employees very well. They give so much opportunity for growth. The one complaint I have is that the majority of the projects have a ton of ambiguity that sometimes seems excessive. Other than that, I have no complaints.
