    Pros

    President/CEO is a savvy business executive with a solid strategic vision for growth. Good people overall and great healthcare benefits.

    Cons

    Operating under a 'reactive' model to adopting a cloud strategy with a very immature product that has been slow to get off the ground. Dramatic growth in 2014 due to acquisitions but little ROI to show for it to date. Poor integration strategy between acquired companies and little/no training on new product/service capabilities of those companies.

    Advice to Management

    As the company is growing they should adopt a more cohesive integration strategy. More Mgmt. level training with MBO's tied to 'team' performance - good employee's don't necessarily make good managers.

    Pros

    There are some high-quality people hiding within the company. They have a lot of money.

    Cons

    Pay on the low end, expect your employees to give everything and don't treat them with respect. Although the Waltons of Wallmart have more class than to brag about the house or apartment they got. Just google "Vistex Trump" and read all about it. The funny thing is I sound so negative, it's not the worst place in the world, but my guess is you can find better.

    Advice to Management

    Start reading about any modern day software companies. 37 Signals "Remote: No Office Required" is a good example.

    Pros

    Product is used by many top companies. Flagship product provides unique skill set for employees, which can be leveraged even after leaving the company.

    Cons

    Unethical in their approach to the customers. Exaggerate the work needed to meet customer 's requirements. Unethical in their approach towards employees. Exploit employees and contracts to the hilt, while paying low salaries. Difficult to maintain work life balance. Management is not open to product improvement suggestions. Contractors are expected to work on release testing without expecting any compensation. Would not recommend the company to anybody. Better to be an independent contractor.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better care for employees. Improve customer focus. Provide solutions that actually help customers not just increase your billing.

    Pros

    Depending on which deparmtent you gravitate towards, it's (for the most part) a family environment provided you were part of the early Vistex days. They have an annual employee recognition program, average benefits, and plenty of friendly faces around the globe. Vistex is a great name to have on a résumé.

    Cons

    Tough place to balance work and personal life as many positions require long hours & dedication to the company. Upper management frowns upon telling them your vacation plans two to three months out. Meetings start & end late so nothing is accomplished on time. Don't be surprised when work creeps into weekends and throughout holidays. Big language barrier exists between U.S. & overseas employees. Travel & out-of-pocket expenses are a burden for reimbursement since every penny is closely watched by the owner. There is high turnover not to mention 99% of the employed still wonder what their role is after being hired. Jobs end up leaving the employees instead of vice versa which opens a whole new can of worms. Training courses can be gruesome due to a not-so-well-coached instructor. Very little chance of being promoted due to an unorganized structure of managers.

    Advice to Management

    Pointless to advise management as they have reached their goals in life. Instead, current employees thinking of a job change should most certainly do so and work for a company that values your contributions verses questioning your abilities.

    Pros

    The company is privately held so they are very open for new ideas and process improvement

    Cons

    Just like any small company, flexibility is a must. Since processes are not well defined, it seems like you're always playing catch up and it's hard to be proactive.
