    Pros

    The fact that there is the upward mobility within the infra- structure and the fact that they are flexible with making up work hours are two very positive attributes of the company

    Cons

    Constant change and guidelines are always in a state of flux

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to make sure all levels of management are on same page. When there is policy change there is a lack of communication to all involved parties.

    I am new to Torrance and its a great place to live and work. Verengo provides top of the line tools to work with. It's a fast pace, comfortable working facility. Intelligent, friendly co-workers. Plenty of room for advancement. I can't say enough about how happy I am to work here. I look forward to coming to work every day. How many people can say that?

    Pros

    The team is knowledgeable, dedicated and has great chemistry. The corporate office environment is professional and friendly -and in a new building, with easy parking! Senior Leadership is thoughtful, dynamic, connected to the team and committed to the company's values. There are many opportunities for training and development. There are also opportunities as a team to give back to the community.

    Cons

    Haven't really found any cons yet... so, there's not a Starbucks IN the building (but there IS a decent coffee machine in the suite with various offerings and there are some vending machines in the building as well as a handful of restaurants nearby)...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job!

    Pros

    The fun and collaborative culture, flexible schedule, and growth opportunities. I have been with Verengo for almost 2 years now, and it has been exciting to see the company grow and to see that management has invested in my career growth along with it. And we get to make a difference for our environment and our customers!

    Cons

    Seriously can't think of anything!

    Pros

    Growing industry that lives by their values and trust their people. It is a fast paced environment where you can really drive what you and your team do.

    Cons

    Growing pains......we are growing so fast that things change and evolve almost on a daily basis. We work hard and play hard and are never bored.....really it is a good problem to have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course on the mission and values

    Pros

    Very friendly and dynamic environment to work in. I always feel comfortable expressing ideas and receive constructive criticism whenever necessary. Upper management is quick to respond to any concerns I may have. Company is very aware, respectful and places importance on having a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Compensation could be a little better but having a very flexible schedule more than makes up for it.

    Pros

    Amazing culture, everyone is very friendly, approachable, and easy to get along with on the Talent Acquisition team. As, the team is very helpful and will contribute time to go others source or find better candidates. The overall company culture and atmosphere is fantastic...it really makes Verengo a great please to work for.

    Cons

    Something is always changing. Of course we are a "dynamic" company but changes happen all the time, especially on the recruiting team, on very little notice and it makes things very challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    understand each different area of recruiting instead of favoring one over the other. It is very easy to see which talent acquisition team gets the most favoritism over others..with that being said, also which employees are favorite over others.

    Pros

    Verengo is always looking to improve themselves and we do so by approaching things collaboratively. Ken and Randy are heavily involved in the day to day along with the Executive Team making it easy to come to a decision quickly. The work that we do truly impacts the business daily and we really enjoy that as employees. Also, recognition is common in our culture making you feel valued.

    Cons

    Sometimes the change happens a little too quickly and we need to re-group however the team is always strong about reacting quickly and effectively. It's a great group to work with!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep talking to your Directors and mid-level managers to stay close to the day to day. You already do such a great job at this!

    Pros

    Treats everyone that walks thru the doors with respect and everyone is friendly and you hear the ringing of the bells and celebration for each others' successes. Listens to the employees and concerns they have and actually CARES about what they have to say. All managers and Senior Management teams are open and approachable.

    Cons

    I truly can't think of any
