Great place for prima donnas who can't get a job elsewhere

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsInteresting work; small start-up environment for some projects anyway. Flat organization, not a lot of hierarchy. They don't overdo meetings. Friendly co-workers.

ConsInept management, inept board, inept CEO and President (several of them this year alone!), inept sales and marketing staff. Took them 20 years (literally) to get a product approved. No HR department -- it's run by a consultant who has some sort of personal relationship with some high level person there. As soon as Yahoo! banned telecommuting, Vivus did, too, which was so ridiculous.

Advice to Senior ManagementDelegate. There are people here who are extremely talented and excellent workers. Do not keep the choice projects for yourself.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
