    I have been working at Vega full-time

    Pros

    Got a lot of experience working here as the hours were long and there was an endless number of projects. Great kitchen and chef for the head office.

    Cons

    Management was quite inexperienced and you have to drink the koolaid to fit in. Too much politics.

      Pros

      Exciting work, wonderful co-workers committed to maintaining our unique Vega culture, truly amazing benefits and a high value placed on work/life balance, pride in being part of a B-Corp Certified company

      Change is constant - which is not always bad and management has done a good job handling the flux but you must be on your toes

      I have been working at Vega full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Great perks such as on-site kitchen and chef, gym/workouts, on-site physio/massage/naturopath, dog friendly work environment, competitive salary and benefits. But more than perks, it's a great culture with great people who are passionate about what they do and about making an impact. The people and the passion are the best things about this place!

      Cons

      The company has been through significant change, and like any growing company there are bumps in the road and challenges. It's not a perfect company (but where is?) but the desire to be innovative, collaborative, caring, and strive to be better is there and shared by everyone. Growing pains are inevitable and there has been a lot of turnover as the business becomes more complex - but there has also been great new people...

      I have been working at Vega full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Great benefits, competitive salary, dream work space, growth opportunities, female empowerment and leadership culture, supportive co-workers, free lunch, workouts, access to on-site physio, 1 week extra vacation!

      Cons

      If these pro's don't make up for the bumps in the road (that every company go through) you shouldn't work here. Of course their are ups and downs, but most Vega employees have good attitudes and can work through challenges with communication and action.

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the positive feedback and individual praise. We will get through this together.
