    nothing comes to mind in terms of feedback in this area

    Advice to Management

    Continue to have an open door with Sales and Customer Support, its refreshing

    I worked at Vicon Industries (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a job. Until it isn't.

    Cons

    Without a doubt the worst company I've ever worked for. Completely dysfunctional. Totally clueless bean pushers bumbling from one crisis to the next, and the folks in the trenches pay the price. Autocratic management, crappy benefits and the opportunity to work on the worst product line ever engineered. Oh the stories I could tell.

    Advice to Management

    Start managing, and stop playing accounting games. Get out of your denial

    I worked at Vicon Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people who keep the business operating on a day to day basis are some of the hardest working people I have ever been around.

    Cons

    The management does not value its workforce and only looks to cut costs aimed directly at reducing the workforce and skimps on rewarding hard work. No one at the company has received a raise in salary in over 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on keeping your workforce provided for and you will see the added value to your product to so desperately seek.

    "The company has friendly coworkers and is a good stepping stone, but not a place for career advancement or growth."

    Pros

    Vicon Industries has friendly coworkers, small teams, a rather relax working environment, a typical 9 to 5 job which rarely requires more than 40 hours per week. The benefits is standard with decent health insurance that has good coverage, but no 401k matches. This place is a good stepping stone, where you'd have the time to learn the skills on the job.

    Cons

    The pay is below average, at least for my position, with no bonus or 401k matches. Management isn't as transparent about their decisions and future plans as I preferred. There's no possibilities of internal promotion or growth given the small team sizes. The company has lackluster growth for many years. The CEO has been in the company for too long, despite the relative poor growth in the company. There's a consensus among many employees that the senior management is too comfortable in their positions, overpaid, and lack of vision and talent.

    Advice to Management

    An overhaul of senior management and new leadership are needed, unless they can show some results in turning the company around and making it grow.
