    I worked at Vertu full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Exclusive product and market, minimal supervision, ability to shine.

    Cons

    No management support or direction, cannot 'walk the walk'. Unreasonable management decisions, lack of appreciation of workers.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the employees or step down.

    I worked at Vertu

    Pros

    Decent pay -- most companies in this industry offer a low base salary and high commissions. Vertu offers a higher than normal base salary and a little lower commission.

    Cons

    - Terrible leadership - Poor company structure - You never know if the company will be out of business the next day.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and value them. There is currently no value on the employees and they are just treated as a number to be replaced. The only time the employees are valued is when the company is in trouble and they need a person to help them with a particular part of their operations in a desperate situation.
