    Collaborative, open work space set-up. People very friendly and helpful.
    Open door management.
    Do-the-right thing mentality.
    Changes relatively easy and quick to adopt.

    Cons

    Too many meetings but working to structure so they are productive.
    Open work space concept can be distracting. Limited privacy may not work for everyone.

    I have been working at VIZIO full-time

    Pros

    For the most part the people here are very friendly. The work load seems to be plentiful, so no dull moments. And the organization as a whole pull together when fires try to get out of control. I am definitely enjoying my time here.

    Cons

    Resources are very tight here. You're usually doing a workload for 2 for the price of one employee.

    Advice to Management

    Some people are very stressed but too shy to say so. Take a moment to realize who needs help.

    I worked at VIZIO full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free health care, that is one of the only positive things I can think of this company. The pay is average.

    Cons

    Your headset cord, is your chain to your computer. This job will make you go nearly insane by sitting for so long. It's constant work, call after call, for very average pay.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with your power trips, treat employees better.

    I worked at VIZIO full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great health benefits, Vizio definitely cares about its employees health with lots of health programs. decent overall benefits. Nice facilities, motivated people, majority of management is amazing & welcoming of any suggestions. Fun events. Pay is fair. Everyone knows each other so I take that as a positive given that people's perception & assumption for the consumer electronics industry is that most TV brands are run by teams with thousands of people. Small organization, lots of work but in my experience very good work/ life balance.

    Cons

    HR is basically unapproachable! Definitely could be a lot friendlier & it was somewhat nice until recent changes within the HR org chart.

    Advice to Management

    Offer 401K matchup & take a closer look at HR's interaction with INDIVIDUAL employees, not the company as a whole because internal HR communication with the company paints a different picture than when an individual sits with HR for discussion or help. Seems like HR highly dislikes any type of face to face interaction & it's evident but mostly awkward

    I worked at VIZIO full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic location, recognized brand and underrated industry leader. A rare tech-ish company away from the majority in SF and LA. Stable for the foreseeable future. Lower salary for the area, but justified in a horrendous job market.

    Cons

    Very hands on, micromanaging is the norm, as evident in the basic office layout (long tables and about 40 associates can all stare right at each other all day). Managers, supervisors, VP's, are all within speaking distance to the employees - and it's not by accident. Catered over a core group of young fresh-out-of-college hires. A little bit clique. Excess meetings where majority are completely checked out on their laptops.

    Advice to Management

    Very competitive tech industry, need to focus on a few areas and master innovation onshore, rather than outsource all production AND thinking.

    I worked at VIZIO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very small (lean) company, so great opportunities for networking with outside vendors and partners.
    Base pay + bonus is relatively good for OC.

    Cons

    Company is extremely lean, thus everyone is expected to do much more than at a traditional CE company. Expected to work long days, and often nights and weekends.
    Nearly all ideas and decisions start at the top and are pushed down. Little ability to contribute to strategy for those not at the executive level.
    Can be very stressful for those looking for a work-life balance.
    Stock options only available for those at very senior level.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect.
    If you want employees to work longer hours, offer more incentives (promotional opportunities, training, stock options, etc.)
