Exciting, Fun, Challenging & Dynamic. Not for the faint of heart.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsVertex is an extremely unique organization with great people and a great deal of opportunity to learn and grow. The company and the people expect you to work hard at Vertex, but in my experience those that work hard here are recognized and rewarded.

ConsVertex is growing and still venturing in to unchartered territory which is both a source of exciement here as well as some frustration. At times the need to be nimble results in wasted efforts.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere's always room for better communcation and more transparency.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
