    Pros

    They'll pay you for your work weeks.

    Cons

    They'll lie about when and how they're going to lay you off then do a walk in surprise lay off with promises they can't keep.

    Advice to Management

    Shut the company down and start it over with a whole new slice of life. Just changjng the name to Vistra didn't fix your woes. Non stop sexual harassment that directors thought was funny and verbally abusive managers made coming to work a living hell.

    Great people, excellent benefits, work that was fulfilling!

    Little to no communication with employees. Everything is a locked down secret. It was difficult to know what the truth was because all our information came through hearsay.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to communicate with your employees without giving away trade secrets or market strategies. Your employees need to feel engaged and trusted.
