    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Vicon Industries (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Company iss completely set in its ways with no ambition to look 'outside the lines'. New ideas are thought of suspiciously

    Advice to Management

    A complete cleaning of house


  2. The company has friendly coworkers and is a good stepping stone, but not a place for career advancement or growth.

    Pros

    Vicon Industries has friendly coworkers, small teams, a rather relax working environment, a typical 9 to 5 job which rarely requires more than 40 hours per week. The benefits is standard with decent health insurance that has good coverage, but no 401k matches. This place is a good stepping stone, where you'd have the time to learn the skills on the job.

    Cons

    The pay is below average, at least for my position, with no bonus or 401k matches. Management isn't as transparent about their decisions and future plans as I preferred. There's no possibilities of internal promotion or growth given the small team sizes. The company has lackluster growth for many years. The CEO has been in the company for too long, despite the relative poor growth in the company. There's a consensus among many employees that the senior management is too comfortable in their positions, overpaid, and lack of vision and talent.

    Advice to Management

    An overhaul of senior management and new leadership are needed, unless they can show some results in turning the company around and making it grow.
