    I worked at Envision (Kansas) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The founder (who was pushed out) was a very good person to work for. She cared greatly about the mission and believed in what she was doing.

    Cons

    This is a very poor place to work. Current management is dishonest, incompetent and is not committed to the mission. Very questionable decisions related to divestment of profitable and mission-focused divisions.

    Advice to Management

    I really have no advice for management. The board needs to take a good, hard, objective look at the focus of current management.

    I have been working at Envision (Kansas) full-time

    Pros

    Lower level management seems to care about the employees......Climate controlled building....

    Cons

    The "CEO" has cut about every thing he could get his hands on. I don't feel he really cares about the blind people all that much. There used to be a Christmas bonus of 3% of your yearly pay up to $500, that has now been cut to 1% of your pay up to $500. The blind people are only making about 8-10 and hour there bonus for most of them is under $100 only people making 50K or more a year get the 500.....also envision used to pay the taxes on this bonus, not any more. They have cut some of the 401K benefits. Heath Care has gone up, coverage has gone down. (Some of this is due to Obomacare). Little side perks have all pretty much been cut. We used to have a meal for thanksgiving and Christmas now it is just 1 holiday meal. We used to do an hour lunch for some other holidays all of them are gone under the new ceo. There have been many other perks cut under the new ceo as well. When anyone ask about it they are shunned in meetings. I think people would be ok with these cuts if they are truly needed, but when you are a none for profit and hiding where all the money goes it seems a little shady.....

    Advice to Management

    Lower level management seems to be great, but upper level could care less about anyone. They keep filling positions with there buddies and not who would be best for the company......One example is we had a job that has always been a manager position...the new guy is friends with the ceo. He gets the job and magically now the position title is director.....directors get a lot more perks in our hand book....also I have never been anywhere that a director had only 4 employees under him/her......

    Pros

    Helping the blind and watching what they can really do.

    Cons

    Blind people are treated and paid poorly. The new CEO has cut about every benefit he can get his hands on and tells everyone how bad we are hurting for money. Although he wont show anyone any of the financialy statements and we have been working 6 days a week for most of a year now and recently opened up a 3rd shift because we can keep up with orders. This new CEO has brought in a lot of his buddys / people he worked with in the past and ran off a lot of other top management makes me wonder how much corruption is going on up there. They try very hard to keep employees in the dark. In the last year or so we have had, 1/2 our retirement taken away, insurance go up, pay raises capped at 1.5 % which is a joke and wont even keep up with inflation, Christmas bonus was last yr was 100 and this year rumor has it, the bonus will be 0. We used to do a dinner for thanksgiving and Christmas now we do 1 combined, used to get river fest buttons, this are a few of the benefits we have lost just in the last about 1 year under the new CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Get ride of this guy or quit hiding all the cards. When an employee ask a question in a company wide meeting and the CEO answers there are things you guys don't need to know your hiding something an most people are feeling you are a little corrupt at the top.


  10. "Positive until new management came along and started cutting benefits."

    Pros

    Amazing mission; you have the ability to see the difference you are making in the lives of others. Large, but small enough to know most of your colleagues. Very diverse operation. Challenging work.

    Cons

    They pay those with vision loss poorly and that leads to negativity of those employees. Negative environment with little trust.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth with those who need it most. Hourly employees are "working poor"' with disabilities and we all know government contracts are landed because of them. Make employee morale a priority.
