    I have been working at VectorUSA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Vector has a very diverse portfolio and a "can-do" attitude. We employ very intelligent people that have a great attitude and a desire to be the best. With the right guidance, the growth potential is incredible.Benefits are comprehensive and generous, pay is good, and growth opportunities are ample. It is a challenging and fast paced environment and not for everyone. I look forward to a long and prosperous career with Vector.

    Cons

    As with any company in transition, there are growing pains. Some of the staff are resistant to change, and can be challenging. It is a challenging and fast paced environment and not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your eyes to the future and trust the people you've hired to get you there.

    Pros

    Vector continues to expand their business and makes a concerted effort to stay current in our industry. There are many long-term employees that foster the family feeling as we grow. There are some great people here with so much knowledge and experience to share. We know we are not perfect and we are looking to improve.

    Cons

    We could do a better job with employee communication and share more about where we are headed.

    Advice to Management

    Let us know where we are going and how we can better execute your vision.

    Pros

    Management promotes a very entrepreneurial environment. This company believes on growing talent the core values are built around " you will earn your position, noting will be handed to you" Management does a good job pushing you out of your comfort zone. Lots of room for development and growth but you have to work for it, no hand outs here.

    Cons

    Focus on accountability and team work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing us to be better, Trust your leaders.

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

    Pros

    VectorUSA has experience in various divisions of the telecommunications industry and there is unlimited potential for career growth within the company.

    Cons

    A technician will get shuffled between projects and will get lost among other experienced techs and will not get recognized by their accomplishments. Among this shuffling you will be expected to perform other tasks that are not related to your scope of work, i.e. Telecom tech doing AV or telecom tech doing access control surveillance.

    Work is beginning to look scarce.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the potential of the technicians.

    I have been working at VectorUSA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I work my own hours

    Cons

    Vacation time is not great, no 401 k or other benefits without paying out of your own pocket

    Advice to Management

    Need to praise great employees. Yearly raise or bonus. Scheduling work needs to be more on a "more type of order". Using the same employees while sitting others out is not good. You loss employees this way.

    I have been working at VectorUSA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Since coming onboard at VectorUSA I have been very fortunate to have been exposed to many opportunities allowing me to expand my knowledge and advance my career within the organization. My experience is that VectorUSA has a lot of good people who really care about what they do and those they work with.

    Cons

    VectorUSA is not unique in that it has, as all organizations do, room for improvement. I do believe that ownership is proactively working to identify these opportunities and actively looking for solutions to improve the overall Vector experience.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the current trend. I see positive change and am optimistic about the future of VectorUSA and it's employees.

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

    Pros

    It's a job. If you like to be in a poor quality bully environment, come here. They put you in a position to leave you to fail

    Cons

    The senior staff likes to get school projects to milk them dry...their support is non existing, if you like mediocre, then this is the place.

    Advice to Management

    Get some professionalism and don't be a bully.

    Great environment that makes you feel like family!

    Pros

    I am glad to say I worked for vector for 14 years and I think I was very fortunate to find such an outstanding company, I enjoyed every moment working at vector, although I only new one of the owners to talk to Jeff Zukerman, I was always aware of the open door policy available for the staff, working in the construction industry it is well known there are times when there is little work,and people have to sit at home, but I know from first hand the company go out of there way to keep everyone working, I would still be working for vector but I retired at the begging of August.I was very happy to retire but very sad to leave all the great people who work at vector.

    Cons

    I am very happy to say I do not have any thing to say in this section

    Advice to Management

    keep on doing what you have been doing since the company started, I know it is a very competitive industry, but I have always said that the owners at vector are very smart people and will keep the company busy.
