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

    Pros

    Great health benefits. Can sometimes append your travel. Interesting co-workers, sometimes very intelligent. Products are cool.

    Cons

    Specific to VizRT in US: President is micromanaging shark with microagressions and anger management issues. VPs and middle management are spineless yes men in their president's shadow. Truly a petty dictatorship. You pay for your travel expenses, flights, hotels, they reimburse quarterly, but do not have guidelines and I've seen them argue and not reimburse employees for things that should be standard. No work/life balance, they do not respect your time. Expect to work long hours for typically 35% less pay than competitors in same sector. No pay raises EVER, expect only a cost of living raise as it's law in the state, and you'll be lucky if they allow you to take your complete vacation time. Extremely low ceiling, no movement.

    Advice to Management

    You shouldn't be management, fire all middle management, start over, don't be involved with your employees until you do, you make things worse, really, and it's unfortunate you do not see this as viz could be a really cool place to work in the US. Fear based management doesn't motivate people, that's why you have the turnover you do. Put people who care about people in management and customer service positions.

    Pros

    Great Benefits package and a good learning experience.

    Cons

    Not much to offer in terms of professional development. While you do interact occasionally with other departments within the company, there is not much in terms of training or inter-office interactions. Micromanagement within certain departments is counterproductive.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more training to junior positions and advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    Nice travel, if you like sitting in datacenters and working fourteen to sixteen or more hours daily in exotic locations. You make your own travel arrangements (and pay for it too, they reimburse) so you can schedule the weekend while you're at that exotic locale. Health and PTO benefits are nice.

    Cons

    Management is horrid. I've see the US President stare for fifteen minutes across the Manhattan office at his employees with the evil eye. Work/ Life balance is not respected by the company whatsoever. Training is minimal if any at all. Expectations are unrealistic with training, you will be expected to know everything without training. Escalation path is non - existent, after 11AM EST you will be left holding the ball while the customer screams.

    Advice to Management

    Quit, let them hire someone who likes to manage people. Or quit treating your employees like they're your evil stepchildren.

    Pros

    Great support people and my VP was very helpful attending almost all presentations to prospects. NY office made life difficult and we did not see eye to eye on long cycle ales.

    Cons

    Very Expensive broadcast products with a lot of less expensive competition. They only appeal to very large broadcasters like CNN, etc.

    Advice to Management

    You need to work with resellers
