    I worked at VTech Communications full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice people overall and the benefits are good.

    Cons

    I the pay tends to be on the low end and there are little to no bonuses. This is a Hong Kong company and their business model is different. I would think twice before working for a foreign company again. THere are very limited opportunities to advance in your career.

    I worked at VTech Communications as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of resources, both human and financial. They own a world known brand name and their products are fairily easy to market.

    Cons

    They have over 34 thousand employees worldwide and one becomes just another part of the company. They change their focus, staff and management quickly soley based on real-time numbers. There is not a long-term investment philosophy and by this they miss out on real opportunities that they are entitled to as a brand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the value of your work force; invest in the future; not all business works in the retail scheme. If you venture out o that segment (retail) you must adapt to a different employee and market approach.
