    Pros

    Great people to work with, everyone always comes together like a family and works on meeting the task at hand.

    Cons

    There is no advancement available in the company; if your not close to upper management or married to them then your stuck where you are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to hire laterally and look at the people at the bottom that WANT to move up.

    Pros

    The people you interact with on a daily basis (except senior management and HR). They are what keeps me sane.

    Cons

    No room for growth
    Does NOT promote from within
    Pay is below industry standard
    Raises are slim to none
    HR caters to senior management and does not care about the employees
    Senior management are hypocrites
    There are always cut backs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees. We are all a team and support each other. Once people start leaving there will be a domino effect and there will be no one left to support you.

    Pros

    Great people, nothing much more than that. Unfortuately this company is on a decline and they know it. Avoid it like the plagues, company has very little ethics.

    Cons

    No personal growth, training is not encouraged.
    HR lies, get everything in writing.
    Pay is incredibly below industry standards.
    They just laid off several people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No hope for management, I think. Companies needs to remove them all and start fresh with a new batch of management.

    Good products, excellent industry vision.

    Cons

    Even though I always blew my sales goals away, I was let go with no warning or severence. This company uses people and treats employees like cattle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to appreciate your employees and how to be a good corporate citizen instead of taking advantage of people.

    Former Employee - Salesforce.com Administrator in Walnut, CA
    Former Employee - Salesforce.com Administrator in Walnut, CA

    I worked at ViewSonic full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Because of the disarray of the database at Viewsonic, I was always challenged to find creative ways to accomplish tasks and deliver on requests.

    Cons

    Reporting to the Channel Marketing Manager (or any sales role for that matter) is not a desirable structure for an IT position. In Viewsonics case, the manager was a big mirco manager and never gave specifics about what he wanted, resulting in a high level of frustration between myself and him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the sales dept. worry about sales, and IT worry ab out IT. SalesForce.com is a sales tool, but it is managed and owned by the IT dept, so please get the sales dept. out of the picture.

    Former Employee - Sales
    Former Employee - Sales

    I worked at ViewSonic full-time

    Pros

    Work from home, flexible schedule, decent pay for the amount of work done

    Cons

    The company didn't seem to have an idea of the direction they wanted to go. Senior management didn't always get along and constant bickering and bitching about senior staff was always ongoing. Very little back end support from the "specialists" who often didn't have answers or would get confused on conference calls. Pricing and inventory was always an issue. Many deals would be lost because an answer about inventory would go unanswered. Very little brand marketing outside of the IT industry. Many customers had never heard of the brand and thought it was a knock off 3rd party brand that they could buy at Best Buy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to your employees and don't just pretend to. Many employees are in positions they are not qualified or suited for. Promote the brand!!
