I love working at Vast. The people are motivated and intelligent, and plenty of autonomy is given for employees to do things the way they feel best. Plenty of flexibility in scheduling, and managers seem concerned about results, not "butt-in-chair" time. And it's a small thing, but the open-office feel and well-stocked break room are great.
Definitely not the place for you if you need strict management, or aren't comfortable with ambiguity. Definitely a Mac company (no PC's used), and downtown traffic sucks. Otherwise very few cons to working here.
Advice to Management
None worth giving, except keep doing what you're doing. Management's very open and accessible, so if I had an issue, I could easily talk to them about it, and not resort to posting on a public forum
