    Pros

    Awesome culture, driven support team, aligned values and purpose, clarity of short term goals, good leadership team. Great game plan in place to provide alignment and clarity for the support team.

    Fast paced environment that requires agility. Associates must be willing to have a growth mindset to be successful. High energy and change adaptive individuals tend to be more successful.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good employee learning and development, good concept overall. Dedicated staff.

    Cons

    Poor leadership and direction from former CEO (2013-2016) and his hand-selected senior managers who lacked experience led to turn over of loyal and dedicated employees and loss of respect for executive leadership team.

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to grow so fast. Remind yourselves if the missionm Listen to your field (Chairs). Give more thought and involve more line folks before a major change is rolled out.

    Pros

    Vision and mission are congruent with who I am; the vast majority of the people that work here remain consistent with company values.

    Cons

    Long days of intensive hours. Sometimes change initiatives occur before the last change imitative has had enough time to settle in and the impact has been assessed.

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere, management led by example and were always open to new ideas. There were a lot of opportunities to move between departments and up the ladder.

    Cons

    It is a corporate company, and politics got in the way more than once.

    Advice to Management

    Set politics aside when considering projects

    Pros

    Fabulous group of bright entrepreneurs and leaders. Professional development a priority. Blue chip brand opened doors for new relationship-building.

    Cons

    Needed more access to executive management when new programs and initiatives were being considered and rolled-out. More local market funding of sales and marketing initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support sales professionals in the regions with local marketing budgets and decision-making. Find ways to tell a more compelling story to differentiate Vistage from the many copy-cats which has sprung up in the last 10 years.

    I worked at Vistage Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    The people, the perks, most of the culture. The rest of your experience will really depend on who you are working for.

    Cons

    Failure to stick with the same goals and vision. The message changed several times when I was there. It was hard for some people to commit to any one thing because the company seemed to have an identity crisis.

    Advice to Management

    I know most of you care, but there were some there that clearly didn't. I was lucky and I would grade my overall experience as very positive but a lot of people came and went in my tenure. Your experience at Vistage should not depend on who you report to. Everyone should be treated the same.

    Pros

    Vistage has an incredible mission of helping leaders and their companies become better leaders, make better decisions and more successful.

    Cons

    There appears to be high employee attrition in the last year and even more so recently with employees leaving on their own to explore other opportunities.
