    I have been working at Vital Pharmaceuticals (VPX) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company has a non-micromanaged work environment that allows you to work independently. Ideas and looking ahead vision is welcomed and the coworkers are great. If you are looking to join a company where you can grow this is the place.

    Cons

    Should have an onsite gym.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work in allowing employees to work independently and exceed at what they do.

    Pros

    Besides being in Florida - nothing really. Area in Florida is beautiful - water beaches - have to complete 20 words minimum

    Cons

    HR is incompetent. Interview process was a joke. No expenses are reimbursed. This place is very disorganized and chaos everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Best advice - do not work here

    Pros

    No pros. Not a pleasant place to work. Very high turn over. Working here was a huge mistake. I regret it.

    Cons

    They steal from employees and customers alike.
    Very unethical. I recommend taking a job with the trash company over this.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to someone who can manage it.

    I worked at Vital Pharmaceuticals (VPX) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay was average for the position/workload.

    Cons

    "Sword of Damocles" work environment, never know when the axe is going to fall. Minimal benefits, no retirement plan, been "in the works" for years, not going to happen, 20 year employees ambush-fired in the parking lot, not even allowed to clean out their desk. I give mgmt. one star because there is no way to give zero stars. Took one week vacation after two years (because they will not buy it back) and was laid off two weeks later.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what they are doing, the industry will sort them out.

    Pros

    Up beet state of the art facility which values its employees as much as they value their industry leading products. This team has been hand selected and is running like a well oiled machine.

    Cons

    Not much if any.

    Advice to Management

    Accountability and the ability to adapt to change is the key to success,

    I worked at Vital Pharmaceuticals (VPX) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good product, does exactly what it says on the tin.
    The owner, his wife and family while perhaps a bit eccentric were very nice people. I wish they had been in the office more.

    Cons

    Bad management. No reviews and you'll never get additional pay or a raise regardless of performance. Management is filled with dinosaurs that don't understand basics of computers. Can count the times I had to show managers basic excel functions and even simpler tasks like how to re-scale and print documents. Unacceptable for people in a high position to be so ignorant of technology in this day and age.
    Serious problems with production capability. Never enough product made and constant shortages of best sellers. In house production is far below capacity due to lack of equipment and planning. Half of the production facility is never in use.
    Technology hopelessly outdated. Company wastes huge amounts of time in the field and in the office because of poor software and hardware. Sales reps in the field do not receive proper training for the equipment and nobody in the home office is well versed in its use and able to answer questions. All technical issues are either thrown at a single uncaring/overworked IT worker or directed to software support lines where you will be lucky to ever hear back.
    Order processing department a complete mess due to aforementioned IT issues. Your ability to survive is dependent on how well you can navigate the very poorly optimized software tools.
    Bad company culture and mistrust. Company does not promote from within and hires from direct competitors. Managers lie to sales reps on a near daily basis in regards to products, timing of shipments etc. Management will say any and everything to end a call/email chain before saying anything close to the truth. Management fires employees with no reason given and without warning.
    Management does not value input of its workers. If they ask, its only so you can smile, nod and agree. They want validation, not real input.
    Huge amounts of waste in nearly all departments. Fleet vehicles are not serviced properly and employees are not held accountable for damage they cause due to negligence. Management hires friends and does not treat people fairly based on experience and numbers. We had sales guys that knocked it out of the park everyday but couldn't get one iota of recognition and had to constantly fight to get support. Meanwhile sales reps who were hired by newly brought in managers from former competitors would prop up personnel they hired by inflating sales numbers and low balling sales goals for certain routes.
    Company has money/legal issues on a regular basis. If you are let go, don't expect severance or even a pay out for your remaining vacation balance regardless of your position.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable. Middle mangement in the company lies till they are blue in the face. If the CEO cares about his brand, he needs to axe the yes men and get some people in willing to take a risk and make real changes. As it stands everything I was saw was alot of talk and a new coat of paint. Not much else.
    Spend the money for better software and tools. Buying iphones and a sales app doesn't help if you don't pay to get someone in house trained on its use.

    Pros

    No Pro's at all. If I knew how it was before, I would have never applied!

    Cons

    Poor communication, no respect for people, poor management, lack of professionalism, atmosphere when sharing opinions, Yes Sir culture

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the upper management, hire professionals, having models working also in sales and marketing is something should change as their knowledge is very very limited.

    Pros

    The company provides a great atmosphere for learning and innovation. If you are a person that likes pioneering projects and implementing your own ideas, then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Unfortunately they do not provide an incentive to stay with the company for the long term. There is lots of room to grow skill wise, but very little room to grow money wise.
