    I worked at Vistage International as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good culture,
    Welcoming attitude,
    Teamwork is doable,
    People are generally laid back

    Cons

    Not too many challenges,
    Some trouble getting the right thing at the right time (when your job requires inputs from different people).
    Career upward mobility will be a challenge in some departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    C-level execs (CEO especially) have done a good job at cultivating a laid back, friendly, work-life balanced environment. Keep up the good work. Continuously improve on the culture.

    Current Contractor - VISTAGE Group Chairman in Austin, TX

    I have been working at Vistage International as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've been a group chair since 2006 and our noble work creates overwhelming "added value" to those business owners and C-level members that give in order to get. We are not for everyone yet those who are selected, remain for many years and most if not all grow as leaders and improve both their top and bottom line.

    Cons

    If a business isn't growing today, it is dying and just doesn't know it yet. Headquarters in San Diego have dedicated employees wanting to make a difference. New owners are experiencing growing pains which will correct itself in time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep trying new ways to reach the small to mid size business owner. Believe in your senior chair leadership because they are your key to opening up this treasure chest.

    Pros

    The work that we do actually has a tremendous positive impact on everyone involved from the employee's, to the Chairs through the members, which feels great if you are purpose driven and want to be proud of what your employer does for the greater community.

    Cons

    None. Maybe I am easy to please but Vistage has been nothing less than great to me, I love this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps I'm easy to work with and in a great department, so all of my supervisors have been a true pleasure and have become people I can enjoy time with in and outside of work.

    I have been working at Vistage International full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Although Vistage is not well known around the world, because we are unique in what we do. It is the best company I have worked so far. People here are really great, sure there's always politics, and interest of conflict, but Vistage encourage people, respect people. I have great work and life balance here. The company also have great training program and fun activity for their employees, such as annual picnic in the summer, annual christmas party, Del Mar race track and etc. I feel easy and comfortable come to work everyday and have been happy for the past 2 years I worked here.

    Cons

    A unique industry sometimes it's hard to explain to other people. Opportunity to learn is limited as the company is small.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with the great work and culture!! Continue value your employees like you do now. Create a more dynamic business segment in which we can thrive in a long run.
