I have been working at Vision Critical full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Vision Critical's best quality is their employees. This job was one of the best I've had because the people are fantastic. Hard working, extremely intelligent and innovative, friendly and forward-thinking.

Every IT company likes to proclaim that 'change is the only constant' and this is certainly true of VC. The difference, though, is that VC is always trying to change for the better. They bring in experts to help fine-tune the development process, they listen to their staff and they promote from within.

Cons

Compensation is lacking. When you're negotiating, bear in mind that bonuses are non-existent. One year, we were given iPads as a bonus ... and these were clawed back if you left the company. The next year, bonuses were in the low single digits. Stock options are available but this is a private company .. so unless you're around when they go public, the options are worthless.
