    Great assistant to CEO, gets everything done. Management is available to employees and open to growth.

    Pros

    It has good people working there, opportunities and good work balance. I recommend to anyone looking in this industry to check it out.

    Cons

    I do not have any negative things to say. It is a business that gives opportunity to those who make an effort to advance. The industry is competitive and rewards those who strive to achieve.

    Doesn't care about their employees

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Ability to take licensing exams. Decent work/life balance (9-5). You can learn both sides of the market if you're willing.

    Cons

    Vision does not compete on salary. Upper & Mid management is a joke, and leads through fear. Company will not spend money to increase team sizes, and as a result, departments suffer with larger work loads. CEO is two faced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a step back and realize that the company faults lie with leadership, or lack thereof.

    Pros

    The employees are good, allow you to take tests, you do everything, good please to learn (as long as you tech yourself).

    Cons

    Low Pay, Benefits Package is abysmal, no motivation to do a better job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some money to retain good employees with knowledge, rather than hiring interns and kids straight out of college.
