    I worked at Vistage Worldwide as an intern

    Pros

    Very collegial atmosphere. They treat interns like regular employees. They even pay their interns which is pretty rare.

    Cons

    Lots of meetings. Managment is very busy and does not have enough time to provide feed back on work done.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more feedback and direct interns so that they are able to not only learn but provide you with the work product you need.

    I have been working at Vistage Worldwide as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most meaningful chapter in my book called LIFE. Rewarding for a caring, giving oriented coach. Been chairing for several years and see myself chairing for several more years.

    Cons

    First 6 months living hell...yet if if was easy, we would have average to less than average chairs and our members would not have a better than average chance to have a over-the-top experience. You must have a local network or raving fans from your previous role, job or company connections. Having 30 individuals you can call up, sit down and ask them to open their address book for small to mid size business owner friends or colleagues is essential to launching your 1st group.

    Advice to Management

    Include local senior chairs in the interviewing and selection process of new chairs. When you have a new chair being supported and sponsored by an existing chair, you have a much better launch ratio.

    Great opportunity to create your life, work as hard or as little as you want.

    Advice to Management

    Expand support of your Chairs, without them there is no business.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the member.

    I have been working at Vistage Worldwide as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Vistage community includes a a wide variety of smart, effective, ethical, ambitious, determined Chairs, CEOs, entrepreneurs, business owners, and key executives. The monthly meetings help them work "on" their business, not just "in" it. As a Vistage Chair, I am delighted with my experience here in Ohio -- and grateful for the support I receive from the central offices in San Diego.

    Cons

    There's not anything to complain about. The Chair Agreement I've signed with the central office is clear and all parties adhere to the terms. Here's the only negative: "Vistage" is still not fully known throughout the market, so there are potential candidates for membership who haven't met a local Vistage Columbus Chair.

    Advice to Management

    Keep innovating, keep testing assumptions, keep finding great Chair and Member candidates for our local market.
