    I have been working at Vendavo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    .... work from home when parking daily rate is too high, parking not paid

    Cons

    Everything else. Bad culture that breeds backstabbing, vindictive behavior to survive. RTO as long as you have phone and computer 24/7 while on vacation. No direction, or support from management.

    Advice to Management

    Need new management. Scare and vindictive tactics are not productive. No one is sure they will have a job tomorrow, crazte a healthy, stable environment.

    Too much Backstabbing; 4 CEOs in less then 2 years; turned over the entire Sales Executive team a few times while I was there; no culture or support for new employees

    Have clear roles and responsibilities in positions as there was too much redundancy. Eliminate the culture killer of backstabbing.

    Pros

    You can do work remotely

    Cons

    Everything else. No culture. Teams are heavily siloed and discouraged from communicating with one another. Senior Management is as bad as it gets. No true user testing or research for poduct. Company website and dev is a total disaster. Lots of egos and no sense of team. No brand strategy or best practices in place. Even HR failed to properly submit forms to health and 401k providers. Find another company you’ll be thankful you did. Nobody is happy they work here and it shows everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Let the people you hired do their job. Use industry standards and best practices instead of your ego and this is how it’s always done mentality. Stop fabricating wins when there are obvious losses all around you.
