    Frustrating

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTechnology is far ahead of the competition and potential is huge. Opportunity to excel at what you do. Excellent core engineering team. Great individuals throughout all teams.

    ConsSome products are not user friendly but getting there. Lackluster productization thus far but getting there. Project management is a world onto itself. If it's not broken, don't fix it attitude. Many old school engineers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementVidyo is an engineering driven company. Focus on modular platform, products, and features. Modularity and compatibility simplifies testing, QA, and customer integration. These things drive sales. Preventive work beats reactive work and saves time.

    Great Potential, Great Technology, Bad Management Decisions

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe technology IS unique and superior to all else out there ... not just a marketing catch phrase.
    Good people as co-workers.

    ConsManagement know their technology but are not the smartest business people. A history of BAD business decisions ... need someone who is more business-smart leading this company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet some experienced, business-smart people on the exec team.
    LISTEN to the people that you hire ... don't be dismissive.
    Don't think that great technology automatically brings success.

    Mostly a daily grind & very stressful. Heavy politics. No work / life balance.

    Confidential (Former Employee)
    Hackensack, NJ

    ProsCompensation is higher than average but not sure for how long... Health insurance is fully paid for. Fully stocked kitchen. Most folks can choose their PC type (Windows/Apple) and in most cases the equipment is with strong specs.

    ConsExtremely opinionated high and mid level management makes it very difficult to improve and streamline various processes. Huge disconnect between high level tactics and strategy & the impact they have on daily operations. Prepare for long hours with no light at the end of the tunnel...

    Watch out

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsRight now, nothing... Had a good and unique technology at first, but every one else in the industry catches up and provided a much stable and easier to use solutions.

    ConsMajor layoff lately. Products and software is not stable, cause customer dissatisfaction. Loosing deals to new and fresh start-ups. micro-management. Culture of fear. No future. Be aware.

    IPO or acquisition is not realistic - so really no future..
