    I have been working at Vision Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    To be transparent, I am one of the owners of Vision Technologies. Having read every review posted here, I have to admit to being disappointed that a few people failed to see the value of what the company has to offer, and have chosen this anonymous forum as a tool to vent. One aspect of our Culture is our Open Door policy, enabling any teammate the opportunity to discuss issues or concerns with any manager at any level. It’s unfortunate that some chose not take advantage of that opportunity.

    We’re an ownership team that has grown the company by reinvesting our profits to provide jobs, growth, careers, training and tools for the over 450 people that choose to work here. We care about our people, and the families that they support.

    I’d also like to comment on the criticism of our growth strategies and operations. I think that the results speak for themselves. We’ve grown year over year, created a company with five distinct and interdependent business units, and demonstrated to the market that our solutions and services add value. It’s disappointing to see a few folks criticize what is clearly a working, thriving and successful strategic plan. Not many companies grow to over $100 Million, and that doesn’t happen without a great plan, great people and a team environment.

    Regarding the reference to nepotism. It is true - out of the 450 or so teammates, 5 are related to the owners. Two of those five were founding members of the company and have helped grow it over these last 17 years. One was honored twice last year for service to his fellow teammates, Above & Beyond. The Above & Beyond awards are nominations from peers, and voted on by peers.. So while we do have family members on staff here, we also have many other employees who have encouraged their own family members to work at Vision as well. We have a significant number of employee family members and friends. And that says to me that not only is Vision a great place to work, but it’s a place where people feel comfortable enough to recommend us to their family and friends!

    I also would like to address another common theme I see in these reviews: Vacation Policy. Every new employee receives a minimum of 21 paid days off in their first year with Vision. This equates to a full month of paid time off in year one. Those that continue to support Vision’s mission receive additional paid time off based on their years of service. Most Vision team members feel this policy to be both fair and equitable.

    Cons

    We’re not perfect . But we recognize that how you handle adversity is the clear mark of champions. So we work on improving every day, and we work on improving our teammates through training, education, tuition reimbursement and we work on improving our solution set, keeping it current and viable in the marketplace. Sometimes, growing pains can be felt and when they do, we work to resolve those issues, but there’s no magic wand. It takes hard work, working smart and working together to solve these. I’m proud to say that we succeed far more often than we fail, and our growth is living testimony to that.

    Advice to Management

    Always remember that customer-focused, growth oriented companies aren’t for everyone. The entire management team appreciates every teammate and their commitment to the company, to each other and to growing their career. While a few clearly couldn’t find the same level of satisfaction and growth, for over 450 teammates, Vision is a great place to be every day!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vision Technologies in May 2016.

    Interview

    I spoke with a representative with the company who reviewed my qualifications. I didn't suspect at first, but after I was terminated from the company, I can see that they were looking to fill the company with bodies that would do the work for them, and if in any way if Vision or the contract company that I was working for did not like you, they would find any excuse to terminate you without cause.
