    Pros

    Committed colleagues who genuinely want the organization to succeed. Good customer base. Reliable product.

    Cons

    Mid-management; micro-management; low salaries, no 401k program. Feedback, innovative thinking and professional contributions are discouraged. Management's focus is on your ability to follow process; not on your knowledge/experience or your professional ability. This environment proved difficult to grow professionally.

    Advice to Management

    Difficult to give advice to a management group that believes they already know everything there is to know.

    Pros

    My co-workers are nice. I have some real friends here. I also like the quality and design of the products. It's nice to produce something you are proud.

    Cons

    Leadership is the worst I ever experienced. There is micromanagement in conjunction with poor direction - a recipe for disaster. Also, fix the environment and infrastructure. Altogether, this paints a lack of respect for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage people. You are driving off the talent that could make this company more successful than ever.

    Pros

    The employees there really care and want to produce quality work. Eugene is a wonderful place to live and work and VL is one of the few tech companies to work for. It's a small company but they do have good benefits.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Even if you are educated, smart, collaborative and feel confident in your abilities and skills you'll still be discounted because there is an attitude that nobody is competent. Projects stall out without empowerment to finish the job.

    Advice to Management

    Hire bright people and pay them as much as you can. Trust your team to do the jobs you have hired them for.

    Pros

    Working at VersaLoigic you will definitely have a good work life balance. Moreover, the health and other non-financial benefits are quite good considering that it is a small private company. You will get chance to do a wide variety of work outside your typical job role. The people working there are very nice and helpful, probably some of the nicest people that you will come across.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity to grow your career. You might get stuck in one position for a long long time. Although salaries are OK but other monetary benefits have been close to zero for past three to four years. Company has been facing a lot of competition from other low cost good quality international players which seems to be hurting company a lot. They have some good big customers that they can rely but what if they were to leave? It poses a serious revenue risk for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employee and their feelings as they are working in the interest of the company. Come up with a solid strategy to grow and make the company profitable and stick with it which will hep in gaining trust and confidence of your people. There is so much potential to be tapped but one needs a good well thought out plan.

    Great for new hires, but the honeymoon doesn't last forever.

    Pros

    Among the few high tech companies left in Eugene.

    Cons

    Senior management can be extremely mean spirited at times. Always willing to blame and/or ridicule employees but rarely takes any responsibility for poor planning. Very little incentive to exceed expectations. This company has succeeded in the past, despite these shortcomings, through the perseverance of key employees, but many of them are now gone and if nothing is done to stem the tide, more will soon follow.

    Advice to Management

    It's all been said.

    Tightly controlled, privately held, small company with large company expectations.

    Pros

    Opportunity to be on the ground floor of a small company that has real potential and is developing a plan to grow significantly within a relatively short period of time. Potential for a satisfying, well paid career.

    Cons

    Uncertainty that there will be a payoff for those who help achieve its goals. Micromanagement that stifles creativity and sense of ownership. Below professional grade pay.

    Advice to Management

    1) Employees are stake holders. As the organization increases value so do its stakeholders. Incorporate a stakeholder value proposition that is in line with the company's growth plan.
    2) Create a reputation as an "elite" company that pays well and expects top notch results. Then trust your people (stakeholders) to build a company that achieves/exceeds expectations.
