    I have been working at Pro-Vision Video Systems full-time

    Pros

    When I first applied for the job, I read the reviews on here and was questioning of the negative ones. You have to take any type review that is negative with a grain of salt. Since being hired, I have found not a single negative thing that has deterred me from working here. I am not in a management position - yet I am respected, listened to, and valued for what I bring to the company. Which is hard work and doing the best job I can. Like any other job - they have realistic expectations of professionalism and work conduct. As long as you work hard and have the drive to do well, you will succeed. There is transparency, community, support and the opportunity to grow. I wanted to come back to this site and emphasize the positives because I feel Pro Vision should receive their due credit for being an established, professional and solid place to work for. Looking back at it i'm glad I didn't let a few disgruntled employees change my mind. The best part about the job: the people! Everyone who works here is welcoming, friendly and caring.

    Cons

    There's none. Be willing to communicate; If there is a problem/concern and you talk to them about it, they will help you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! It's great that you dedicate the time to be involved with your employees.

    I worked at Pro-Vision Video Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the employees are kind and friendly.

    Cons

    Management is completely awful. CFO/CEO have no respect for their employees and are doing what they do just for the money. They have unrealistic expectations for their employees and successes because they're both wrapped up in their own world. Super corny and cheap company to work for. They try to uphold this "professional" culture but constantly contradict that on a daily basis. Thanks for making 2 years of my life pretty bad.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe take the time to appreciate your employees as people instead of just money making machines

    Pros

    Good product but zero customer service.If you are looking for a company that represents integrity, work life balance and a place to plant roots keep looking.

    Cons

    If you are looking for "chain of command style" leadership, belittling, micromanagement, unrealistic expectations, an unhealthy working environment and where no matter what the cost the "house" always wins. This is your place.
    You will start to notice your first week or so on the job that everything they told you is a lie.
    You are 100% commission but micromanaged like no other, you pay all your expenses and if their products do not work, you will pay for those also.
    Reach out to former employees before you start if we can stop people from going what we did we will. There is nothing here for you this place is a sham.

    Advice to Management

    Why not be what you say you are, stop and the smoke and mirrors.

    Pros

    None whatsoever!! This place is terrible to work for! They have had so many many many people come and go!

    Cons

    Not the place you want to work at! Stay away! Also all the positive reviews are from their own management writing them.

    Advice to Management

    You simply lie way to much and now it's catching up to you! If you had good management then you would probably do much better.

    Pros

    One of the best things about PRO-VISION is that the managers are approachable. I work as part of the Admin team and I know that my manager is extremely approachable and I feel comfortable to ask her 100 questions and to talk through a problem. The great thing is though, that all of the managers are approachable, no matter which department they are apart of.
    Another great thing about PRO-VISION is that the people that work here are expected to work hard, and the people that currently work here do work hard, because we want to see this company do big things. Therefore, the positive atmosphere and the hard work is definitely a pro of the company.

    Cons

    I do not have any.

    Advice to Management

    Before I posted my review, I looked at the other reviews, and to me, the bad reviews sound like they're coming from people that didn't work hard enough. In order to be successful, you have to work hard, it doesn't happen overnight. With that being said, my advice to management is that they need to continue to empower their employees and to expect them to work hard, because this company is going somewhere positive.

    I have been working at Pro-Vision Video Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been in the work force for over 35 years and have worked for only 3 companies in my Life. I have worked for large corporations, small companies, and then Pro-Vision Video Systems. The Opportunity to work for a company like Pro-Vision doesn't come around very often in ones lifetime. If you are willing to work hard, bring a positive attitude and have an unmatched work ethic you might have just found your last job. I know I did!!!

    Cons

    The commute is quite long. I drive over an hour to get to the office, however once here it is well worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing. The future is bright. This management team is the perfect combination of experience and youth.

    I have been working at Pro-Vision Video Systems full-time

    Pros

    One of the reasons I like my job here is that the company allows me to contribute as much above my normal positional requirements as I want and after I have succeeded in doing more they reward me. Many companies hire for a specific role and don't give the opportunity to do more, not something that happens here.

    Cons

    If you don't get your tasks done the management gets on you quickly, they are very helpful at getting me back on track but if I didn't take constructive criticism well there would be a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure employees know what they are empowered to do. Sometimes people are not comfortable asking.

    Pros

    This company is going places. Great customers . Strong support in all aspects of the company. The engineering team truly understands how to design and build strong products that makes our customers more effective and our communities safer. This company has high expectations of all staff members. In return for good work and solid effort is a generous pay and benefits package.

    Cons

    Setting the tone for the industries we provide services for isn't always easy. Staying ahead of the curve and bringing solutions to market in a new and creative way requires maximum effort from the entire team.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain your high standards it sets you apart.

    Pros

    Everything you learned in college is put IN ACTION at this stellar sales organization internally designed to bring the best products to market. Not many companies will truly assist the sales staff by presenting the precise formula to be successful. A lot of investment in marketing and research and competitive analysis as well as technical support make it easy to sell these great products. Perfect career for recent graduate or self driven seasoned sales person that can follow the plan. Outside sales and management team are pampered with a new company car, laptop, unlimited IT support, cell phone, and all the tools needed to make it happen. Some folks on the outside have honestly said, "It is a privilege to work for Pro-Vision so don't blow it!" GREAT group of people to work with each day!

    Cons

    Because of the fast growth of this company working spaces have been trimmed down a bit over the years at the corporate office so we will be in need of a larger facility sooner than later.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking to the future and planning as you have because we are only as good as the lead dog!

    Pros

    I have worked for PRO-VISION for almost five years. Each day has brought a new challenge, but that’s a good thing. If you are person that seeks to always put forth your best, to give maximum effort, then PRO-VISION is the perfect place to work. Don’t get me wrong, the expectations for all employees are extremely high. You need to be at the top of your game every day. This is something that motivates me, and motivates those at PRO-VISION to be successful. The career opportunities are unparalleled. This is a place where you can truly make a real impact. For those that put forth the effort the rewards are endless. Are you up to the challenge?

    Cons

    Not much negative to say. You have to be accepting of change. PRO-VISION is always adapting to improve. That can be difficult for some.

    Advice to Management

    The company is headed in the right direction. Keep giving employees the tools they need to succeed, and keep pushing us to improve.
