    I worked at Vivint full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Casual environment for the most part
    - Enjoyable co-workers
    - Cafeteria
    - Sand volleyball court
    - Paid time off and good health benefits for an hourly wage job

    Cons

    - Constantly changing management creating chaos and confusion
    - Poor communication between management and employees and different departments with one another
    - Pay scale changed often and usually for the worst
    - Some (not all!) sales members that were abusive or deceitful in their tactics towards coworkers and customers

    Advice to Management

    Keep the manager in place for more than two months so there is at least some continuity to the department. Also, stop changing the pay scale for your employees. If you want to motivate the poor performers, start actually writing people up instead of punishing everyone with some ill-conceived pay plan that you think will encourage people to work more.

    Also, it wouldn't hurt if you could curb the mouths of some of your sales people who would constantly brag about making $3,000 on a single paycheck when others struggle to support a family on $800 a paycheck and manage to do it without lying or throwing a tantrum when they don't get their own way. Maybe you could try giving an incentive to people that actually push forward the process rather than throwing another two or three iPads at the sales team who are constantly messing up their sales information and making others have to babysit them and triple-check their work.

    Last, stop changing your policies every other month as well. It frustrates your workers, slows up the work, and irritates customers in the end. If you're thinking about changing something, ask if it is REALLY going to make that much of a difference or not.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Vivint as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good company overall, great strategy going forward, provides great service to customers, sales comp is great once you develop the skills, can feel good about representing the products/company, company has grown tremendously and is only expected to grow more in the future, company is involved in a lot of community/charity work, the Blackstone deal says a lot about the company's potential growth

    Cons

    Depending on your career goals, the compensation can be deceiving (if you're good) and hinder your development in whatever you plan to do long term. If you plan to stick around, commit to it and embrace it. It's not a bad set up if you're a good salesman. In fact it's a great set up. If you're in it for the check at the end of the day (there's nothing wrong with that), just don't let the comp prevent you from developing skills and a background based on your long term goals. Ask yourself, how much will my future employer (post graduation) value my sales experience? It may be different for different career paths. Then, have the guts to forgo the extra cash and focus on whatever it is you want to do long term while you still have time in your college years. SAVE YOUR MONEY.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to pay quality techs more and crappy ones less. Quality products are diluted with crappy install. Quality installs are critical especially as you move into markets of consumers with higher expectations.
