    5.0
    Former Employee - Product 

    I worked at Viewpoint full-time

    Pros

    They work hard to find people that align with their values. They care about their employees and do a really great job in their field.

    Cons

    Tends to have a culture of overworking their employees, but they do encourage taking time off and doing what you need to do to prevent burnout

    I worked at Viewpoint full-time

    Pros

    Viewpoint has so much potential: good product and generally good people working there.

    Cons

    Middle management is a constant and pervasive demoralizing factor, and upper management is either willfully ignorant of this, or they just don’t care. There is so much unnecessary stress here that many of my co-workers admitted to having job-related nightmares. Managers often go back to the “it’s a software company, and we need to be agile” retort. But that’s just an excuse for both tolerating and promoting disorganization. Sure, Viewpoint will give you free beer and donuts on Fridays, but that will definitely not balance the stress you will feel every other day of the week.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Viewpoint full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Hard working co-workers and free food (sometimes).

    Cons

    Little to no promotions/raises, paid well under industry standard. All new hires are junior developers directly out of college. Leadership does not care about employees, leadership is runs like an "old school" software company. Management only shows up to put out fires and cause panic. Viewpoint is not what you think of when you think, modern software company.

    I worked at Viewpoint full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good location if you have a parking spot.

    Cons

    Current C-Level management have no clue how to run an organization and it trickles down through the company. Ineptness and incompetency are the standard and the ‘vision’ changes on a whim.

    I worked at Viewpoint full-time

    Pros

    Like a lot of the reviews: the fruit It can be a good place for a very short period of time Hopeful that Rob Painter will identify and fix the problems The new head of HR is making good changes

    Cons

    Poor executive leadership. Words are great but actions mean much more. You will be underpaid here. You will not be able to grow a career here. Product development is so behind the times. Products are stale. No investment in the company in product, support, services. CEO just wants to hire more people in sales.

    I have been working at Viewpoint full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Super accommodating, focused on employee health and welfare. Weekly all hands status meetings optional for all to learn what's new and connect with others. Lots of updates, programs and FAQs to help employees get used to long-term work from home situations. Transparent about numbers and employee's can ask questions anonymously.

    Cons

    I miss the office and interaction with colleagues but have faith that the executives have employees' best interests in allowing and encouraging telecommuting for the near future.
