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

    Pros

    Great company to learn Supply Chain skills.

    Cons

    Limited advancement, recognition and severe disconnect with workforce. Limited movement and opportunity for advancement due to biases. Limited openness to diversity and different thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Take notice and find their integrity for recognition and awards. Rewarding poor performance sets a terrible precedence for the culture.

    Comp plan is fair and lucrative if you do well. Industry best products with some new ones in the pipeline. Not a huge amount of micromanagement

    Cons

    Industry isn't what it used to be. Long hours and at times gimmicky marketing that you have to push on customers because corporate wants you to

    Pros

    While you are there, good benefits and facilities.

    Cons

    Some very bad people have worked at this site - ask around. Behind the scenes motives and politics are always at work. This site has its own culture which has gone from "good old boy" to "cut throat". Up front, all hugs and kisses, but behind the scenes unethical and sneaky.

    The most bureaucratic place I ever worked. The site is still top heavy and abuses temporaries and contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Smile J & J - the world really knows you're not a virgin.

    Pros

    The people and most people in management really do care about each other and the community they live in.

    Cons

    Some of management are very lazy and try to take credit on projects they had nothing to do with. Before team meetings, there were a lot of "can you tell me your progress on the X project so I can share an update" Why would you share an update on my project?

    Advice to Management

    Start pulling your weight and put in a little extra effort.
