    Not much to say here. There are some good co-workers as well as some good managers.

    People are overworked and underplayed. This place is a joke.

    Pros

    My time at Vistex was very unique and short. I felt that there were a select few employees who were outstanding. They definitely hire very skilled and intelligent people as a company. Great health benefits, great co-workers who are very knowledgeable in their field. Middle level managment is exceptional. They (middle management) genuinely care about their employees.

    Cons

    The pay is pathetic for an IT company. When I left, I started making double what I made there - no exaggeration; exactly double.

    More alarming than the bad money was the unprofessionalism of some of the upper level managment. On my last day of employment, someone on the Sr. Manangement level very clearly said, "You do not bring anything to the table for this company." That was alarming given that they were so unorganized that they, at times, had nothing for us to do. Not to mention the fact that I was making close to what I could have made continuing at my college job.

    Oh, and they look down on using your personal/vacation days that you earn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees. Never say "you bring no value to the table." Fact is, that every one of your employees bring something to the table if you open your eyes, especially at Vistex. Pay is one of the things that you can do to show your employees that they are valued, pay them what they are worth. Get a new HR department and promote your mid-level manager who bust their butts to keep things moving smoothly.

    Pros

    Vistex is a growing company with great opportunities for well performing employees. While there were not many growth opportunities a few years ago, this has definitely changed as the company has grown. Managers genuinely care about the growth of their employees.

    Cons

    To be successful at Vistex you have to be prepared for the fast pace. Sometimes this can mean long hours. There are some growing pains as Vistex expands its workforce.

    Pros

    Vistex is a growing organization with a lot of room to grow in the industry. They're a leader at what they do and have the tools and people in the right places to make it a good learning opportunity for somewhat experienced individuals.

    Cons

    What they have in growth organizationally, they lack internally for employees. There are not enough levels of management to make a difference in promoting from within and people are generally stuck to their role without any room to advance without becoming a Director, which are positions that are currently occupied.

    Working with Vistex EMEA is a great, international and challenging experience

    Pros

    You're working with fantastic colleagues and the Vistex GmbH has still a kind of Startup character. We are 20 different nationalities all over Europe and this also creates a great atmosphere to work in. Your daily tasks are challenging and not boring, salary and benefit package is equitable. You get the feeling to grow with the company and the European management shows the employees how they appreciate the hard work – they are open minds, include the opinion of employees in their decisions and their door is always open for their employee’s needs. It is no nine to five job, but you enjoy going to work.

    Cons

    From time to time the communication with headquarter e.g. for getting approvals on something can be long and complicated, mostly caused of distance between Europe and Headquarter in Walldorf and sometimes you get the feeling of being extremely dependent. Also since the company is growing rapidly the structure does not follow fast enough and so working here can be a little bit chaotic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share positive feedback not only in yearly review interviews but also in between the year – people need praise and appreciation (EMEA management starts doing that already). Let your employees act self-dependent; not everything needs approval and control.
