Great Company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsHighly motivated energetic workforce made Vertex a lot of fun to work. Everyone seemed very passionate about what they do, which keeps everyone engaged.

ConsUpper management had difficultly communicating vision and often rely on external expertise from consultants or new hires vs. hiring/promoting from within the organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave a clear vision for your group. Get input from your direct report vs. relying on external expertise.
