    I have been working at Vizergy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Really good work/life balance, talented employees, flexible schedule, show they value their employees through quarterly employee celebration parties, quarterly performance bonuses, family-friend get togethers, happy hours, and recognition. Like any job, you get what you put into it...If you work hard you and are eager to learn, you will excel here...But if you slack off or don't put forth the effort or quality work, you won't last. Very involved with making sure the employees who work hard are happy. Quarterly paid time off for community volunteer opportunities. Foster their employees to learn has much as they can by cross-departmental trainings, team luncheons, webinars, and paying for continued education. I feel like if I have an idea or a problem, there is always someone in management ready to listen and open to change.

    Cons

    Since this company is constantly growing, there are the usual growing pains.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunity for salary increases within the company. Base an employee's pay on the effort they put in and the quality of their work.

    Pros

    The associates who work there are amazing. Great team work and overall caring of others. Good product

    Cons

    Top management can't stick with an idea and run with it, keep changing things that are not broken and not able to move forward creating new and better products to stay competitive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your customers and staff, they know more than you give them credit for. Stop changing everything all the time and use your resources to create new products.

    I worked at Vizergy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Generally good working environment, majority of staff very talented and knowledgeable

    Cons

    Upper management and executives often hold back progress with too much process (red tape) - Sales teams are not knowledgeable of actual services and sell the concepts "sales sheet style" which sometimes leads to clients not always getting what is best for their needs up front.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on quality service and agency style consulting instead of production house style.

    I have been working at Vizergy

    Pros

    The people. The employees and mid-level management have a real passion to provide a quality service to their customers. The creative team is extremely talented and the customer support is incredible.

    The ideas and initiatives brought forth by your peers at Vizergy are ripe for successful product and service offering. There are a ton of talented people in various aspects of Internet marketing, all willing to go the extra mile for whatever project is at hand.

    The account managers (the people that consult directly with the clients on all things related to their website) are extremely helpful to both our clients and co-workers. They do whatever it takes to ensure that the clients' needs are met.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, as talented and passionate as the employees are, they are not given the opportunity to excel or even grow in their respective fields. Senior management feels that if something was not their idea, then it simply isn't worth exploring regardless of the source of the idea.

    The higher you climb the management level, the less respect you will see given to their employees. At the highest you will find that the employees of the company are seen as "monkeys" (owners exact description by the way) and little more.

    If you want to take initiative and progress in the website design or online marketing field, Vizergy simply isn't the place to work. There is no strategy or goal within the company, nor a desire to be the best at anything. The people that finally make the decisions are so out of touch with the topics discussed that they end up shooting themselves in the foot on a financial and operational level.

    A lot of very basic mistakes are made on an executive level, leaving the rest of the employees to wonder about the future of the company. One day you are told that Vizergy needs to be the very best at what we do, the next day we don't have the time, money or resources needed to accomplish such a feat.

    Anything new that comes up is often handled in a very unproductive and disorganized manner. Instead of actually taking initiative on new methods or technologies, they are always looking for the silver bullet or shortcut. If a test that was faulty from the start doesn't work, then the whole idea is thrown out, leaving Vizergy to lack all the things on which their competitors embrace and capitalize.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn when to give into the idea that you simply don't know what is best. You don't have experience in this industry, and it's only a matter of time before you customers and competitors realize it. It would be best to give appropriate authority where it is needed.
