    I worked at Vistex full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice people to work with

    Cons

    Losing great people all the time because they do not pay according to skills, the level of work and client load/engagement needed. They are just luke warm with employees and there is very little room for advancement. It's a great starter job, for a few years, but that's it! They need to invest into more employee development and growth.
    Everything is fine until you try to leave - boy do they not like that! My last 2 weeks (for notice) were awful! Managers stop talking to you, talk negatively behind your back and even after you've left! You're managers! You should be happy to help develop your folks and people leave - it's a reality, please behave as managers should.

    Advice to Management

    Develop your internal talent - invest in them financially and career development wise.

    I have been working at Vistex full-time

    Pros

    Health coverage is relatively good

    Cons

    Everything else - horrible place to work, penny pinching, micro managing, over working, with no work life balance. They have a very bad business ethic. They will do whatever they can, including lie to customers to make a buck. This is a very "cliquey" company, if you are in, then you can screw up and get away with things, if you are not.....look out.

    Advice to Management

    There is so much, I don't know where to start

    I worked at Vistex full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Unfortunately, there was nothing about working for Vistex that was positive for me. I loved the people I worked with and had been with hawkeye (acquired by Vistex) over 10 years, but after a year of life as a Vistexian, I knew it was definitely not the place for me.

    Cons

    Chicago calls all the shots, and all those shots are called by the owner/CEO. There are other senior executives, but they can't seem to make a decision unless Sanjay approves it first. Creates a seriously dysfunctional system. "Frugal" doesn't begin to describe how penny-pinching this company is. SAP funnels opportunities to Vistex which means Vistex doesn't (or didn't when I was there!) understand outbound marketing or why that might be important. They also had a very difficult time understanding sales cycles since the sales function as an SAP partner was handled by SAP. Pay is below market, raises are a pittance, and the micro-management is over the top (and hey, don't forget to donate to the CEO's pet philanthropy because otherwise HR will be hounding you daily).

    Advice to Management

    Manage. Develop an interest in industry knowledge and strategy. The company is being suffocated with the current policy of running all decisions by the ceo.

    Pros

    The health benefits are very good for the size of the company. The people that work here are nice. Free soda and water.

    Cons

    There is no communication within the organization, you have no idea about any development cycle, this is a software company. Upper management is horrible, they do not allow anyone to make their own decisions or have any input. Stifling environment. Owner is very frugal, they don't even provide you with a laptop bag. No investment into employees, no professional development opportunities.
