    I worked at Vertical Screen full-time

    Pros

    Bosses really appreciated your work, recognized when you put in the extra effort. Flexible with advanced notice as far as working a different shift than usual. For a single employee, benefits were simply provided by the company at no charge to the employee.

    Cons

    Can feel repetitive; working the evening shift was late, and if you start with evening, it's hard to move to an earlier shift.

    I worked at Vertical Screen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work isn't hard. If you just need some kind of income (which isn't much) then I'd say go for it.

    Cons

    I was here for 3 years and would have stayed if they actually changed their ways, but that was hopeful. The environment is very toxic. The supervisors (aside from one person) are inexperienced and have bad attitudes. HR doesn't care about their employees -- they sweep everything under the rug. Also, they make a big stink about being on your phone (which normally is understandable at work) but you'll walk over to a supervisor's desk to ask a question and they're watching Netflix. So, the hypocrisy is pretty ridiculous. They are VERY big on gossip, so I'd suggest keeping to yourself if you work here.

    Advice to Management

    You really should start looking into how people are being treated in each department, and find ways to make Vertical Screen a more comfortable environment. It has so much potential, but a majority of the people in charge right now don't care to notice what's wrong.

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

    Pros

    Lovely headquarters, very bright and open with plenty of natural sunlight. Casual dress code and the allowance of listening to music on headphones while working are plusses.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, very low pay, not a whole lot of room to climb up to different positions. Most of all, very monotonous and boring work.

    Advice to Management

    Increase employee review to not just yearly, but quarterly. Do not let people get stuck with one assignment, make sure you give them new opportunities to grow.

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

    Pros

    Theres free healthcare and basically unlimited overtime.

    Cons

    Expect management to not give a crap about you whatsoever. They think “free pto” is a good overtime incentive when all we want is to be paid more money. They expect a lot of work for little to no compensation. Most people I know have to work unreasonable hours to make ends meet. The culture is toxic and very much like high school. If you don’t kiss up you will get nowhere. The work itself is very repetitive and mindless. I find myself bored most days and not challenged at all. Management is very passive aggressive and resorts to petty emails to belittle you and guilt trip you into working more. They make it seem like you can move up easily in the company but it’s all based on nepotism.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay your employees more I promise it would increase production. I would care more about this job if I got an actual living wage.

    I worked at Vertical Screen full-time

    Pros

    It was relatively close to my house, and I could boss my direct supervisor around enough to get some of the things I wanted regarding my schedule and the things I would and would not do. They also had decent insurance.

    Cons

    Where to start?? This company is absolutely awful. They do not care about their employees and they don't listen to anyone who actually has 3 brain cells in their heads. You don't get training or a living wage, and they make you come in when the state is in a state of emergency. Run far away from this company!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Give people raises that are actually worth something. And bring up your hiring standards because one day someone is just going to steal hundreds of social security numbers and leave and then the company will get sued into the ground.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Try to do regular, random department sit-in observations just so you can have a feel for what truly goes on in a department.

    No premium health insurance.

    Cons

    Management, Human Resources, supervisors, cleanliness,

    Advice to Management

    They need to actually manage and stop all the friends and family from destroying this place. Human resources is a joke. Harassment discrimination sexual harassment is rampant here. Management does not care at all about the employees.
