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

    Pros

    -Access to awesome products
    -Great benefits, 401K is awesome as well as time off
    -Flexible work schedule

    Cons

    -No direction after multiple acquisitions
    -Sales Leadership Team bad for moral and company culture
    -No new innovation and when there is new innovation there is no support behind new products so they fail

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of your rear end. And have the Sales Leadership Team take a Lynda Course in sales leadership

    I think a huge part of why people loved working for Vega is because there was a clear direction on where the company was going and the company culture was so awesome. Stop hiring people that allow for the culture to disappear.

    I worked at Vega full-time

    Pros

    The people. Hands down this company is a collection of the friendliest, smartest, most inclusive people you could ever hope to work with. They made going to work every day worthwhile.

    Cons

    Poor Management. Poor HR. Poor processes. For a company that seems like it cares so much about people it falls down all too often when it comes to things that matter.

    Advice to Management

    Add leadership training. Make managers more accountable and better equipped to handle the wonderful people they work with.
