    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.
