Pros

Viega North America is a very good employer - they have decent pay as well as good benefits, but the US location in Kansas is poor. Manufacturing and management / sales are in two different cities an hour apart which strains communication. However, commitment to growth from the Germany parent company owners is strong. Manufacturing and regional warehouse are located in a brand new state of the art facility. If you like the Mid West and want a good career then you will be pretty happy with Viega. Lots of employees have been there for 5 to 10 years or more.

Cons

Living in Kansas is not for everyone.

Advice to Management

Listen more to those who work for you - but overall communication is better than at most companies.

    I worked at Viega as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly and kind people. It was easy to get along with all the people. The working times were very fair and as a student one receives 500 Euro compensation. The company operates international and employs 3000 people.

    Cons

    Very boring tasks such as sorting bills according to cost type and cost centre. There was no relationship building between interns. The company is a family company and even though it already had 3000 employees, there were not too exciting tasks I had to do.

    Advice to Management

    They should continue to conduct business in a fair and honest way and build on their strongest asset, namely integrity. They should make more connections between the interns and try to allocate interesting tasks to the interns in such a way that they can get truly involved.
