    I have been working at VIZIO full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cross-functional exposure, high visibility, nice facility, great location, little to no bureaucracy and the culture is built on teamwork and trusting relationships.

    Cons

    Compensation is not top 20%, processes can be immature, lean business model usually means each person is juggling multiple roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue investing in technology to scale and automate the business. Focus internally on how the business is managed to further evolve the culture and produce repeatable results and to systematically optimize all areas of the business.

    Friendly co-workers. New campus being built. Quarterly bonus.
    Great health benefits. $20 car details. Thursday breakfasts.

    Working with executives can be difficult and unresponsive at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some time to work with your team rather than 'your way or the highway'.

    Pros

    Health benefits. Exercise classes to help relieve the stress of working here. Compensation is fair, although may be lower than market industry.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. Management does not know how to appreciate employees. People who butter up to management will have better chances of moving up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to show appreciation for your employees. Don't look at them as numbers, but rather as individuals.
