    I have been working at Vital Images full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    What I love most about working at Vital is that I am never bored and I wear many hats despite my title.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between departments is sometimes hard to do your job successfully. The company values feedback regarding this and has made strides to fix. Another issue is that this is a management heavy company and it is very difficult to move up the ladder from senior level to management.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities to allow for career advancement in title, not just duties.

    Pros

    Good benefits. People genuinely care about the products they are making. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Poor management. Too many "C" level people who seem to not agree with each other. Too many companies trying to work together as one solution but do not agree and things do not get done.

    I have been working at Vital Images (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Vital has been my best employment experience by far. They supplied me with great coworkers and a large amount of resources to better myself as an employee. Having a free gym in the basement of the office was amazing. Zero micromanagement in my department.

    Cons

    I was hoping for some talk about future employment after the internship was over. Lack of weekly meetings in my department.

    Advice to Management

    More team building. It was great there were a lot of company wide events but it made it tough to get personal with coworkers that were unable to make it or were with other coworkers.

  10. "Software Engineer"

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Minneapolis, MN

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Good work environment and good work. Always working on cutting edge medical imaging products.

    Cons

    It has been a small company for a while. The revenues are not too high and it has been making a loss for several quarters. So the risk of layoffs was always high.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide the good work environment. Be more transparent about where the company is headed . Provide more stock options/RSUs to employees if salary cannot be hiked due to low revenues.
