I worked at Vertical Communications full-time for less than a year

Pros

There are companies that have x-men and then there are those comprised of yes men. Vertical Communications is definitely the latter. So if you consider yourself a creative, out-of-the-box thinker eager to advantage your career…look elsewhere.

Cons

The only problem with Vertical and the yes men is that there usually is not a lot of critical thinking that goes into saying yes all the time; and it shows. Their “strategy” is like a fish out of water and
Greece has better credit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Show some respect for your employees, their talents and most of all try a foster an overall fondness for your company. A little more critical thinking into your decision-making would also be a plus. :)

    Pros

    cool product, flexible hours, good atmosphere, employee retention is high, a lot of different technologies to learn all the time

    Cons

    compensation and workload do not correspond to each other, many people balancing several projects and responsibilities, multiple simultaneous everyday tasks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to improve sales for the company to thrive, invest in the employee training, more off-site company events and small perks

    I have been working at Vertical Communications

    Pros

    Few members are great to work with. For individual contributors nice place to work. You can learn as much as you put in effort.

    Cons

    Not much feedback from management. Neither good nor bad. Management is not ready to take hard decisions which seems to be deterrent for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need changes in work culture. People who work hard need to be listened to. People with problems need to be talked to and if they don't want to be dedicated then management needs to do something about it.
