      Best Company Ever!

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Vistage is the happiest, most growth oriented business I've ever worked at. The people are genuinely wonderful. New staff always comments the same thing, "everyone here is so genuinely nice!" And it's true. My coworkers are intelligent, talented, motivated, funny and focused on growing as people and contributing to the company's vision. We have a clear plan for where we are going as an organization, and all of our hard work results in a very successful company that offers stability and rewards to its employees. Our CEO is inspiring, focused and most importantly competent. He makes right decision after right decision and it creates an environment were good decision making and proactive performance is celebrated and highly rewarded. It doesn't get much better than this company!

      Cons

      Vistage is for those people who are finally ready for a healthy, sustainable, engaging career at a company that truly values its employees and provides value to the world.

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -San Diego-based -Great Christmas parties -New office

      Cons

      -Extremely high turnover (I was only there 3 years and the 4th most tenured in a department of 22 individuals.) -Regurgitation of the same projects, with new names -Extremely siloed- sales and marketing and brand should know what each other are doing, right? -Disconnected upper management -Annual layoffs were a quiet expectation -Fake “corporate culture” that alienates those not brown nosing department heads -Out of touch with Member and Chair needs and feedback -Frantically and reactive mindsets -Positioned quantity versus quality goals against departments, a lose-lose end.

      Disorganized mess

      Nov 7, 2020 - Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great employees and staff. Everyone is generally nice and helpful. Corporate office is nice and there are cool events .

      Cons

      Management is seriously lacking leadership skills. Departments and teams are siloed so it’s hard to know what is going on in the organization. There are no clear processes and everything is a wild goose chase. There is red tape everywhere and it’s almost impossible to get things done quickly. The HR team is nice but they are lacking leadership, this was not always the case in years past. No career pathing - it seems like they don’t care if employees leave

      Pros

      Good break rooms, decent location, okay perks.

      Cons

      All the company does is regurgitate what they've done and spit it out as something new and exciting for the gawking rabble to swallow up, such as the emerging leaders program.
