    Pros

    Fast paced environment, interesting industry, fun products, collaborative atmosphere for the most part and overall nice people to work with

    Cons

    Upper management - several people don't belong in their positions, not much autonomy at times, rarely any collaboration between C-level executives, company is very stingy

    Advice to Management

    the company makes a lot of $$, and the amount each employee contributes to the profitability of the firm is outrageous - please share it with the people who work hard to make the company what it is today. also need better leaders at Vizio - there is no career development here

    Pros

    Free health insurance, cheap dental, great environment to work in, opportunity to get promoted.

    Cons

    Too strict of policies for a call center, you cannot be even a minute late to work or you will be written up, Vizio is a company that does not care about your personal life, if you cannot make it to work they will terminate you without question. The shifts are horrible. The pay is not competitive enough, it is just average. Managers expect a lot from you and you are constantly busy, the job is stressful and can get very boring. If you want to work at a call center, choose Premier Bankcard or a better paying job in the area, Vizio is not a great company, and does very little to make me think the company will ever turn around and start to reward it's employees.

    Pros

    Growing company that is not afraid to enter new markets and products. Job span of control is large so you can apply your skills in many areas.

    Cons

    Demanding work environment with sometimes long hours and working after normal working hours has become to be expected.

    Pros

    Great people, fun events, awesome products.

    Cons

    Long hours. Terrible work life balance if you work in sales or product marketing and business planning.

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone drinks the Kool-Aid so listen when people say, "Management needs to focus first on building a strong, organized foundation" in their exit interviews. When I was there people seemed to leave just out of sheer exhaustion.


  6. An actively growing company with great pay and a positive environment to work in.

    Pros

    The company is not huge, except for its name ,so growth and expansion lead to more promotional opportunities. The pay is equal to the work you do along with sales opportunities that pay out good commission. Vacation time, sick time, and 401K options are offered and can be acquired by employees within a short time of being an employee.

    Cons

    There is required OT during some holiday seasons, though the pay out becomes worth it. Customer base is not always the most tech savvy people.

    Advice to Management

    In being with this company I have learned a lot from management and could not think of anything to give advice on, except to keep up the good work!

    Pros

    health insurance, friendly coworkers, decent hours to select from

    Cons

    Micromanagement, management in general, it doesn't always matter if you're better than someone else because others who are related to someone higher up will get the job over you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop picking favorites and make it a place where people will actually enjoy coming to work again.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers. New campus being built. Quarterly bonus. Great health benefits. $20 car details. Thursday breakfasts. Great work-life balance, when you know how to balance it.

    Cons

    Personal growth may take longer than expected. Working with executives can be difficult and unresponsive at times.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Good work environment and friendly office culture.

    infrastructure is a bit loose. Bit of politics here and there that need to be sorted out.
