    I worked at Vivint

    Pros

    Ability to make a relatively large amount of money in a short period of time. This is great for college students who would rather not have to work during school semesters. The company provides an amazing atmosphere for employees and there are tons of perks. The vibe is very upbeat and fun while you get quality work experience. There is a lot of growth potential with this company.

    Cons

    Really, the cons are all relative to each person and that whatever it is that they'd rather not deal with in a work environment. If your an up beat person and enjoy socializing and being around other motivated and hard working people, then Vivint is for you. If you get annoyed of being around driven people that are hungry day in and out to do something new and special, then avoid Vivint like the plague. I can see some good hearted, diligent people getting put off with some of the politics that take place. It is inspiring to see so many young managers and leaders in the company, but i can see this also being difficult for some people to deal with as many of these leaders are still learning themselves.

    Pros

    The company is passionate about their customers and therefore their employees. It's obvious from day one that they want to make a difference in the lives of those they serve.

    Cons

    A lot of changes in management, meant a lot of disruption in day to workflow. For example, in May we were on one path focused on a certain goal, by December that had changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to connect with your employees and build leaders from the bottom up

    I have been working at Vivint as an intern

    Pros

    Fantastic company culture. Growing company in an up-next field, very fulfilling work. Compensation is great and Utah turned out to be an awesome place to live. We were placed in apartments in downtown Salt Lake City and commuted to work by a short train ride. Awesome summer internship that I would definitely recommend to anybody looking into business strategy or innovation at a tech company.

    Cons

    Work was a little slow in the beginning, but once they sorted out who fit where, it became much more engaging. Sometimes the commute could be annoying since we had to work by the train schedule, but the scenery on the way was great and you could just sleep on the train otherwise.

    Pros

    I have worked for Vivint about 3.5 years now. Vivint truly believes in customer service and employee satisfaction. This is a company that hears the needs of their customers and employees and takes action to continually improve. I intend on being here for the long term.

    Cons

    Vivint has greatly improved the training program over the last year, and now has a quality program for all new field hires. I really do not have anything negative to say about the company.
