      Pros

      Great team, awesome culture, fun place to work, challenging sale which I think is a good thing for career development. I wouldn't want to work anywhere else. Great managers.

      Cons

      A lot of change. Things have been moving really quickly, which is understandable as the company itself has gone through a number of changes, but it can cause confusion.

      Pros

      VC is a great place to work and if I had to make the same decision I did when I joined I would. Scott (CEO) is very motivating and believes in the vision he talks about. The people are great and everyone is really talented. It's a great place to learn new skills and also to be an entrepreneur. New ideas are always welcomed! Hackathons are so cool! The company gives us a day every quarter to compete in a hackathon competition which showcases life-hacks and work-hacks. So much fun!

      Cons

      There are lots of changes so if you don't like change this is not the place for you. All of the changes seem to be positive and the company is going in a great direction!

      Pros

      Great colleagues and culture. Recent changes show the company is serious about future plans. The company is getting better at listening to staff. We constantly hear about people moving between offices, which is great if you are interested in geographical mobility.

      Cons

      Very fast paced and lots of changes. All the changes are good but at times it feels as if it is too much and too fast, and management can do a better job at helping the teams handle all the changes.

      Pros

      Company takes care of you and is willing to go above and beyond what most other companies would ever consider to ensure you feel important when it matters most. People who work at the company are great and easy to get along with on a personal level. Lots of cross collaboration across the company. It seems like activity and buzz are building up for the product and the industry

      Cons

      There's a lot of change and it's only for those who like lots of change Developments on the product side need to come a bit faster The office surroundings are a bit dated

      Pros

      This is a place that values people and their contributions. When people work hard they are valued and recognized for their work. It is a great company for collaboration across functions and allows for lots of learning. There is a huge investment in leadership development which is felt across the business. Women are valued and there are many women in leadership positions across the company.

      Cons

      There is a lot of change so this company is not for people who are resistant to change. People are expected to be adaptable and be able to change as needed.

      awesome company to work for

      Pros

      Vision Critical is a top notch company to work for! They really do drink their own Kool Aid and listen to what their employees are saying. It is a very collaborative culture where everyone is working toward the same goal. The management team is very open to welcoming different styles and ideas in the door which make it a fun atmosphere.

      Cons

      As of late it has been fast paced with lots of changes to keep up with. That said, they try to prep you as much as possible to ensure you are up to speed with any changes that are coming.

It is a very collaborative culture where everyone is working toward the same goal. The management team is very open to welcoming different styles and ideas in the door which make it a fun atmosphere. I have never felt micro managed, instead it is a 'do your job well and we won't ask you too many questions' type of place, which overall breeds happier employees.

      Cons

      As of late it has been fast paced with lots of changes to keep up with. That said, they try to prep you as much as possible to ensure you are up to speed with any changes that are coming. Only other con I can think of is that I wish our office had more people. We are a little small in the Minneapolis/Bloomington office right now, however that does make us a tight knit group!
