Pros

I am really trying to list something here but it's not coming easy. My colleagues where nice and the events where fun. "Free" lunches (but you it counted as pay at the end of the year. I would have rather had the money and packed lunch). There was really nothing that would be consider a Pro. Wait working at Vonage made me realize how bad a job can be and helped me appreciate my present and past jobs a lot more.

Cons

Vonage is consistent in their method of business. They lie to their customers, employees, and share holders. It is a very poor attempt at running a business. Silverline or who ever gave them that loan in November of 08'. Should be a poster child for our failing finical system. The CEO of Vonage is a crook and he molded Vonage in his image. Check the BBB to and look at the number of complaints. It is a fly by night company that has been in a nose dive longer than anyone could have ever expected. Bitter very much so but I am speaking the truth. Would rather flip burgers then work for Vonage (seriously).

Advice to Management

Look for new management.

    Pros

    I was present for the Tech Support departments pay increase as well as bonus implementation. The money was great for a basically entry type position.

    Cons

    It's a call center under a constant barrage of calls in the que due to inept overseas Tier I support and soul-less sale/marketing campaign that pushed the product down people's throats. People who have no knowledge of current technologies, home networking, and bandwidth. 60-70% of Tier II calls were from people who weren't necessarily naive toward VoIP technology, but were lied to by Sales about their current internet provider being compatible with VoIP.

    Most of the Tier II Tech supervisors were former CUSTOMER CARE AGENTS. Good luck...

    Advice to Management

    A slowly sinking ship is what you get when you promote the unintelligent.

    Pros

    In the technology areas, you tend to be exposed to a great deal of challenge that you would not have the opportunity to experience elsewhere in such compressed timeliness. Technically, you can learn a lot very quickly. Professionally, the longer you stay the more debilitated you will become.

    The secret to Vonage is to not plan on staying - get in -get some great experience - and get out - 12 to 18 mos.

    Cons

    The company is largely run like a mafia-style family - in virtually every sense of the word. Watch the Soprano's - its extremely similar on many levels.

    Advice to Management

    None.
