    I have been working at Vision Technologies

    Pros

    Federal contracts are relatively stable and pay is average.

    Cons

    Work-life balance nonexistence, tuition reimbursement is the lowest I have seen. 401K contribution is low. And they charge an arm and leg for health benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want new and great talent, offer better benefits. (ex - tuition reimbursement and lower health insurance rates and maybe increase 401k contributions)

    Worst Company I've Ever Worked For

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Vision Technologies full-time

    Pros

    * There's not much to be positive about.
    * Some decent employees. HR tries to be decent.
    * Workplace flexibility, but this benefit is being taken away.

    Cons

    * If I could give Vision a negative star rating, I would.
    * PTO plan is non-existent.
    * $1000/yr in training for technical workers, which means no training.
    * While the company claims to be "veteran owned", the values of the company, in no way, represent military ideals.
    * The culture is akin to a Roman Gladiatorial game. You kill or you will be killed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would give advice, but I know it would fall on deaf ears.

    I have been working at Vision Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Great employees, hard working, care about their jobs. Still has a small company feel, but not as small as when I first started. Engineers, admin and techs have each others' backs, and they need to.

    Cons

    Where to begin? CEO and COO are not the people persons they claim to be. Need to be a relative to avoid scrutiny. Below market salary and benefit programs, and senior managers are proud of that. Company has the feel of a down bound train, which is a shame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just sell the company already and move on.

    I have been working at Vision Technologies full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Management is welcoming and open to new ideas and ways of doing things. The environment is friendly, casual and transparent. The company encourages personal growth.

    Cons

    I can't think of any other then you need to want to work hard. This is "pro" for me but if someone is looking for a 9-5 "status quo" position, Vision Technologies wouldn't be the right company. It's a growing exciting business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to do what you are doing!

    I have been working at Vision Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I work in the Federal Services Group. Our management team from the SVP to the support teams are excellent to work with. I am treated with respect, in a professional manner, and as an individual contributor. This starts at the top and the SVP of Federal Services, who is also one of the owners, is fantastic a motivating the team and supporting us. The people are a pleasure to work with and a constant source of pride.

    Cons

    Better dental package and more PTO would be nice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the Federal Services Group keep doing what you are doing. I really do not know much about the commercial side of the house other than the services we provide outside of Federal.

    I have been working at Vision Technologies as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    laid back atmosphere, friendly sdm's, reimbursed parking

    Cons

    PTO is earned, at about 4 hours every two weeks. Depending on your position the pay isn't that great, especially when you see what normal employee's make at your place of business. Manually filling out timesheets and emailing them in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As for my personal SDM, she's awesome. Upper managment seems friendly so not qualms there

    Profit first, sell centric mentality that is successful for ownership to make Millions.

    I worked at Vision Technologies full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There are many avenues to seek advancement and grow career. Very knowledgable staff to support all infrastructure needs.

    Cons

    Family relationships seem to get all of the better opportunities. Take on so much new business that the work for large workforce is on the books but when it doesn't open up, they just lay people off and hire new. Rather than implement a controled growth to try and avoid layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice more of what you preach about actually caring. If you do not profit enough money to give workforce proper raises (which you know is a lie), don't brag at the all hands meeting about the brand new boat that you just purchased which costs more than any 4 peoples anual salary.

    I have been working at Vision Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Even in a difficult economy, the owners have found ways to grow the business. Through the foresight of the owners, Vision has expanded into many new lines of business to become a full services IT Integrator. A one stop shop for our customers for their AV, Electronic Security, Network Infrastructure, Wireless, Cellular Reinforcement services. A true network integration company providing services for the 21st century.

    Cons

    There is sometimes a fine line between pros and cons. One person's pro, is many times another person's con. In the case of Vision, if you like to be challenged and are a believer in work first then play...Vision is the place for you. If you are a clock watcher, Vision is not the place. Winning may not be everything, but if your not winning your losing and Vision employees do not like to lose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to the strategy. Creating a company that can support multiple highly complex technologies takes time and the energy of everyone on the team. We are making great progress.

    Pros

    Flexibility in work schedule. Generally a laid back atmosphere at the remote sites. Staff members really try to assist one another.

    Cons

    Poor or non existent support from management. Decisions are hard for management to make they usually have to defer to the owners. While management will listen and agree that improvements to processes or procedures are needed they never seem to act to implement. First line managers regrettably are in over their heads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your staff have good, practical and creative ideas. Listen and implement once in a while.

    I have been working at Vision Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I work in the Federal Services Group. The SVP is focused, direct, and balanced in his approach to doing work in the Federal arena. My fellow co-workers are amazing and supportive. Hard work but great rewards; work hard but play hard. Its like Marines; if your not one of the few good men or women - do not apply!

    Cons

    Limited support from BD and Sales. They try hard; but they are commercial based with limited Federal knowledge and experience. Need to let BU have more say!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with plan and approach but let the people who know Federal proceed with Corporate input.
