I worked at Vonage full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

A cafe inside the building. Pay is decent.

Cons

Long term success at Vonage requires learning how to blame someone else for your problems. This is mostly done through lying and intimidation. The longer you stay there, the more you realize that your time will eventually run out, as someone else will eventually do you in. All decision-making appears to be based on wishful thinking; hope overrides fact. When projects fail, the failure is often redefined as success, ensuring that those in charge continue to be covered in glory.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Jettison all middle management; establish control over IT contractors. Upper management appear to be decent business people but are technically clueless, so they cannot tell when middle management misleads, which is often.
