    You only get fired if you really really really suck.

    Advice to Management

    Come up to speed to 2017 and use known tactics to keep young blood that also happens to be a good employee working for the company.

    Pros

    The tuition reimbursement is OK.

    Cons

    Overall negative employee attitude. Management decides your career; not your skills, not your experience, and not your interests. Who you know trumps all.

    Advice to Management

    Learn your assets and make the most of them then you can move toward the positive.

    I have been working at Quality Vision International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You collect a paycheck every week. The work can be interesting at times.

    Cons

    Management does not care about its employees. I have never gotten a review on time. Trying to get a fair wage here is like pulling teeth. The work force morale is dismal. I have heard every employee I communicate with on a daily basis bad mouth the company. The veterans that work here seem defeated and work way below their potential due to being unappreciated. Over worked at times and underpaid. Training is almost non existent. If you don't pick it up you will be terminated. Management acts as if they are better than anyone below them. Cheap foreign imported parts used to make "state of the art" machines. Supervisor within a year of retiring does nothing worthwhile. Mid and upper management having basically no idea what is going on.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Compensate your employees better. Try to actually fix problems instead of slapping on band aids.

    Pros

    Hours are decent since only one shift.

    Cons

    Internal infrastructure is out dated and the company is run like a Nazi prison camp by the COO. My $105 year end bonus didn't even have a thank letter from the Owner.

    Advice to Management

    Get Out!

    Pros

    Company clearly has a decent product as they continue to make money but it is baffling as to how they stay in business after working there.

    Cons

    As many others have stated, there are a few people at the top who make all of the decisions, and don't have any interest in listening to anyone else. Training or introduction is none existent. Some of the VP's would be low to mid level managers at real companies as they have no real management skills and are only in their positions because they are the last man standing. Technology is 15 years behind the times, nitpicking oversight is beyond over the top and motivation by fear is the norm. I could go on and reiterate what others have said, but it would be redundant. I wish I had seen this site before I stupidly took a position at QVII!

    Advice to Management

    Given that the company is in good financial standing now, and your "key players" are primarily retiring in 5 years or so, I would start shopping the company to see what kind of interest there is in somebody buying. The first thing a real corporation would do is move. I actually had one of the long standing employees tell me when I asked about the neighborhood told me "no one has ever been shot on company property, but bullets come whistling through fairly often". That should tell you a lot about life at the corner of Hudson and Avenue D!

    Company needs to move into the 20th century

    broaden your vision

    Pros

    There are some very good and talented people here

    Cons

    The culture is one of dog eat dog, perpetuated by the COO. Rules by dividing and conquering and encouraging middle management to berate their subordinates. Employees are touted as being empowered to make changes ... Nothing could be further from the truth as they are micro-managed to death. It just sucks the life and desire right out of you. They expect everything out of their employees, yet never reward or nurture their efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Could be a great company if one or two individuals were replaced.
    To the CEO & COO, pull your greedy narrow minded heads out of your a.....

    I have been working at Quality Vision International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Top notch technology, good products and a consistently successful business model.
    Great colleagues - a family atmosphere where you can work with the same people for 30-years.
    Strong focus on global customers. The SmartScope is respected worldwide.
    Good job stability, low cost health insurance, scholarships, profit sharing, bonuses , high but reasonable expectations for all employees.
    The atmosphere is often intense, but rarely 24/7. A good place to work if you have serious personal passions outside the 8-5 routine.
    Growing consistently while manufacturing in the USA - a lot to be proud of when you look at the big picture.
    Family owners committed for the long haul.

    Cons

    QVI is not for everyone. Lean environment isn't ideal for people who need a lot of direction or cheerleading. Assignments for new hires are not usually very glamorous. Change happens fast - sometimes too fast. Self-starters do well, innovators thrive. Promotion takes time. You need to find your own passion, your own niche - whether its technology or supporting customers - and promote yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your foot on the gas pedal of continuous improvement through quality and continuous improvement. Quality products are the easiest to sell and the most satisfying to own.

    Pros

    It is a paycheck and that's about it

    Cons

    low wages and management from the 18th century.
    Manages by fear and threats
    Total lack of employee personal life

    Advice to Management

    Join the twenty-first century:
    start treating your people like employees and not indentured slaves
    Buy some computer equipment that is less than 10 years old
    Fire all the dead wood employees, that might help to keep new people for more than a year
