Mission: To become the undisputed, #1, industry leader that protects businesses’ data, applications
and servers with solutions that meet every business continuity need.
I have been working at Vision Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)
The #1 asset of Vision is it's people. Very strong "sense" of team within many of the groups with the goal to deliver the best products, support and services in the industry. With the renewed focus on IBM Power as a result of the Double-Take sell-off, the rest of the Vision team is much more focused.
The acquisition of Double-Take by Vision was not a good fit for the company. The fact that Double-Take existed in a hyper-competitive market made it very difficult to transition that business from a marginal success to highly successful unlikely in my opinion.
Advice to Management
Stick to your core strengths and expand on them. The IBM skills at Vision are exceptionally strong and deep. With the right acquisitions and growth strategy, we can continue to leverage those strengths.
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Vision Solutions (Indianapolis, IN).
Initial conversation was with human resources. Took 30 minutes. Much of the time was spent learning about Vision Solutions, and I was asked for a salary range.
First interview was a phone call with a developer. Was slated to last 30 minutes with the bulk of that being collaborative development time. Was given simply development tasks which the interviewer watched me perform interactively. Task was actually complete in 10 minutes. Spent the remainder of the time discussing the development tasks and environment at Vision Solutions.
Received notification that a face-to-face was desired. In that notification there was an explanation of how my salary expectations were a little too high, but could be met when bonus is factored in. Also, was informed that the F2F would be at least 2 hours in length.
I pushed back on the salary. A few days passed, during which time I engaged with my employer about my responsibilities. When I was contacted to go ahead with the F2F, my employer had already committed to making changes for me, and there was no longer a need to leave so I did not take the F2F interview.
