    Pros

    The Sales/Marketing department seems to have Vigor's most...interesting employees. Good pay for a job right out of college. Positive environment. Helpful and friendly managers/coworkers, actually interested in your personal life (perhaps a bit too interested). They took me out to lunch on my last day. Didn't have to dress all fancy for work. Best of all, there's free food to be found from time to time.

    Cons

    The commute to Harbor Island. Lack of benefits. Lack of youth in the office. From what I hear, after I was laid off, employees with much longer tenures than mine were dropping like flies. However, I'm sure their severance packages were a bit heartier than mine, a Christmas ham.

    Pros

    Talented People, great ideas, benefits are decent. Good team work developed within each department. Company is really TRYING to push forward into a new culture.

    Cons

    Departments don't work well together. Too many mergers too quick. Company feels like a foster home with all the new acquired companies. Safety is currently goal #1, but the CEO directive is "do more with less". Sometimes feels like we're being asked to get water out of a rock.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mergers need more guidance, team building exercises to introduce new faces. People need to feel like the new acquired company is help/support not a competition.
