A company run on wishful thinking

I worked at Vonage full-time (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.

    I worked at Vonage full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    As a sales representative at vonage i learnd deferent skills on how to influence customers into dying a product.

    Cons

    I had to use my own fiule and veichle to get to the events we have all over south florida.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The advice i have for the manegement is to not have a sales rep in a kios longer then 1 month. The longer we have our display at a store the harder it is to sale, because the customer are already familiar with are product.
