    I worked at VisionPoint full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay , but was told a lot I was getting paid too much. Insurance is offered but plan is awful and not worth the money.

    Cons

    They don't follow their own policies and the policies they do have are strict. extremely hard to get days off and you get a guilt trip if you call off. Especially since they took almost all sick days away from staff, so if you call off they automatically take vacation days so therefore when you want a vacation you can't take one. There is no such thing as a personal life, your job has to come first not your family at this place. Very high turnover, always training new employees, they hire very bad. Always understaffed. Absolutely no benefits for seniority

    Advice to Management

    Hire more qualified people, ( people with experience) I believe this is done so they don't have to pay them more. Some sort of retirement or 401k would be nice especially for your management employees and longterm staff. Let your staff have a life and make it easier to get a day off or vacation approved without having to wait a long time wondering if you can make plans. Again this all goes back to constant understaffing

    I worked at VisionPoint full-time

    Pros

    they might hire you without an actual position so you might not have to do anything

    Cons

    secretly hires employees temporarily without disclosure, and then tells them that they are not temporary employees, but then they get laid off so it turns out that they WERE actually temporary employees.

    Advice to Management

    go under

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Beautiful offices, good choice of glasses, convenient locations. closed on Sundays

    Cons

    Huge turnover. Only one person in the entire company can take vacation time. No matter the cause if you miss more than six days in fourteen months your suspended then let go. Have to wear a uniform and pass inspection. Appearance is dictated to socks and shoes, nail length, hair colors, etc. very extreme. Don't ever disagree. Cannot sit down. Extensive cleaning part of day to day

    Advice to Management

    Quit being so severe, quit making current workers pay for mistakes past employees have made, too much like a dictatorship.

    Pros

    The products were very and on the cutting edge of technology. Pay and the benefits was as good as other companies. Management treated everyone with respect and listened took in consideration there imput.

    Cons

    Company has no money to back up there efforts to develop technology and took it from employees. Company spend to much money to fast which caused layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Sell what they have before moving to fast. Take care of sales before development. Without the tools to help the sales force there will not be enough money for development.

    Pros

    pay is ok but not great
    benefits are ok, but again not great.
    Creative field. Sell film production. Kind of cool in that regard

    Cons

    Senior Leadership really has no clue
    Used to be great. Not anymore
    I guess they changed ownership and new owner is very mean and in over her head
    They treat people poorly

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Treat people with respect and give them somethin to reach for. Don't take sales reps for granted
