Growing company with a great product foundation

Regional Sales Manager (Current Employee)
Rockville, MD

I have been working at Visual Mining full-time for less than a year

ProsCompany is a small company that is agile and making a ton of changes for the better good. They are hiring Sales reps, listening to development and support for product ideas and we have a great new team of leadership pushing to grow the company

ConsI live in VA so I drive in to work through 270 so traffic can be a pain, but that's life in DMV.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Can't give less than one star, and that's too bad

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Visual Mining full-time

ProsGreat co-workers on the peer level

ConsIneptitude, hubris, even what could be described as psychosis among the executive team, save for one of them. Of course, the only exec that actually had the skills and experience to right this sorry ship was let go right in the midst of trying to push this square-wheeled beast up a mountain.

Leaving this place was the best thing I ever did for my life.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't expect explosive growth with zero to little investment in your people and their development. Leadership starts at the top, and the flaccid performance of this company strongly supported that.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Agile Company, Awesome Technology

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Rockville, MD

I have been working at Visual Mining full-time

ProsTechnology is 6 years ahead of the curve. Powerful sales model. Fun environment. Small company with very smart people. Tremendous career growth opportunity, especially sales. Music, gift card competitions, and good commissions.

ConsThings have moved a little slow in the past. 50 mile commute one way. Need more support

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Run Away as fast as you can

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Rockville, MD

I have been working at Visual Mining

ProsThe company has some good, nice people that are passionate about what they do, work hard, and the offices are fairly nice, convenient to I-270. The kitchen is clean for the most part. Work schedules are flexible.

ConsManagement (CEO). Unconscious Incompetence. Do a search for Visual Mining on LinkedIn and you'll see close to 100 people (if not more) that have worked there. Serious turnover issues that the CEO has no clue as to why people leave or aren't successful in their role. They should have a revolving door installed. A sad situation that one should avoid if at all possible.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnfortunately the only solution to solving the issues at Visual Mining is to replace the CEO before it is too late.

Finally! The CEO is gone!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Visual Mining

ProsGreat people, decent base technology.

ConsPoor leadership from the CEO who did not understand the market, nor the technology and the investments required on the development side to truly compete...but thankfully, that is all history now.

Advice to Senior ManagementNow that the CEO is gone, the company may have a chance.

Good place to work, flexible schedules, going in the right direction.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Visual Mining

ProsFlexible schedules
Hard work is rewarded
You can learn a lot
You can see a direct impact from what you do and contribute
Software is great and used by some of the largest companies

ConsThere were a lot of changes and some people didn't want or welcome change, which can spoil things for everyone.
It's still a "Start-Up" environment, which isn't for everyone - You were expected to do a lot and deliver.

Advice to Senior ManagementGoing in the right direction - Keep making changes and getting the right people on board. Products were solid and moving in the right direction - keep the development going.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
