  2. I worked at Vernier Software & Technology

    Pros

    Pros I echo this statement - The company has amazing benefits. Great health care, 15% contribution to 401K, Dental etc. That is the very best reason to work at Vernier. The owners are good people who are socially responsible and give back to the community. The company is environmentally friendly which is very important to me. The owners themselves have put quite a bit of money into stewardship of the Earth.

    Cons

    Cons Absolutely no room for growth or advancement. No innovation in organization thinking. Things are done the exact way they have always been done. Gossipy, back-biting, competitive women in Front Office. Watch Out if you work in that department.

    Advice to Management

    Re-structure Front Office, employ fair individuals. Do not play favorites in management. Enjoy workdays a little, life is short.

    Pros

    Great pay and great benefits

    Cons

    Alot of negative politics. Alot of rumors, behind management. Some employees are targeted and then treated very poorly and unfair until they either quit or get fired. The owners love to pat themselves on the back every chance they get.

    Advice to Management

    You have lost alot of great hard working employees because you let politics continue.

    Pros

    Very friendly co-workers and atmosphere. Genuine care for employees from management.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement as it is a small company. Lots of overlapping responsibility can make getting things done quickly difficult.

    Pros

    The people at Vernier, from bottom to top, are dedicated individuals who care about the mission to improve science education. It is a family-like environment and a good place to maintain a work-life balance.

    Cons

    The leadership struggles with adapting to the increasing size of the company. Struggles: making decisions, communicating with employees, providing room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time getting the leadership/management team on the same page and then rally the company behind that cohesive vision. Find ways to use the energy of younger employees to bring the company forward.

    Cons

    Absolutely no room for growth or advancement. The company does not know how to support its employees in this way. You become stuck and now they have made it even worse by freezing salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Do not freeze salaries.

    Pros

    The overall spirit of teamwork is good and at times it is great. The owners are good at creating an atmosphere where teachers (our customers) are respected. There is an ethic of going above-and-beyond for science teachers and science education. The founders give back to the community with time and with money. The 401K is terrific. After a number of years they contribute 15% to the 401K and they pay for insurance for employees families. There is an one month sabbatical after ten years of service. Most employees have been there forever.

    Cons

    No one leaves. Once you're in there is no room for advancement in your career or in pay scale. Sales are way up and profits seem way up, yet raises are still held at 3%.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair. Follow your written policies and follow employment laws diligently.

    Pros

    Hours were flexible, pay was decent. In fact, they extended my contract with them from 3 months to just over a year. I was a contractor, and they still included me in holiday paid time off! They operated like a big family, and I loved that about them.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything. Leadership was good, tasks were well-written so I knew what to do. Time off when my mother was sick in the hospital...they didn't even blink an eye. There just weren't any cons. I wish I could have stayed on with them permanently.

    Advice to Management

    You have grown something special here. I appreciate the opportunity extended to me, and wish you the best always.
