    I have been working at Visier full-time

    Pros

    The company genuinely seems to care about its employees. When Covid hit, the company put employee health first, and continues to do so with allowances for all employees to remain set up working from home and mental health support. The management team regularly communicates goals and objectives and most teams are aligned with the vision for growth. There is always a lot of opportunity for someone to take on responsibilities beyond their job roles, and your own career growth is only defined by what you put into the company.

    Cons

    There has been difficulty with some teams communicating/working with one another. There also seems to be a challenge with hiring priorities and critical roles remain open for far too long.

    Thanks for the compliments! We are proud of how our employees have responded to the challenges of our customers and fellow employees during the pandemic. Our support for the mental health and well-being of employees continues to be a priority. While we can't wait to see each other - we know it's important to stay healthy, safe and (importantly) sane.

    Current Employee - Customer Education Manager in Vancouver, BC

    I have been working at Visier full-time

    Pros

    Fun culture, cool technology, interesting market strategy.

    Cons

    Management is condescending and often extremely unhelpful, claims to be in support of diversity but doesn't seem to promote women.

    I worked at Visier full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Sometimes you get to feel like you're helping people, since you deal directly with customers in this role.

    Cons

    There's a LOT of small tasks with associated timelines to keep on top of. A ton of work associated with fiddling around the Visier's software and the fairly messy data going into it, troubleshooting, etc. So in this role I'd say it's important for you to be able to stay organised and motivated when it comes to managing and executing a lot of tedious tasks.

    I worked at Visier

    Pros

    Good hr product. Smart coworkers.

    Cons

    Ancient military leadership style. Leadership could be summarized as a cliquey echo chamber. A bunch of know it alls who haven't closed a deal in what seems like years but still insist that they know everything and penalize any employee who criticises their decision making.

    I worked at Visier full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a good place to get experience if you are a recent grad with less than 2 years experience. You'll meet other young and ambitious coworkers with similar aspirations. The tech company perks such as casual clothing, free snacks, beer, ping pong, and catered monthly meetups make for a good environment. Several people will branch out into other interested places for work so its a good place to start your networking

    Cons

    Young leading the young environment. New initiatives get started, scrapped, and replace on the regular. After a while it makes you wonder what's the point.

    I worked at Visier full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay is sufficient, benefits are alright. Central location with a gym in the building. Lots of restaurants nearby. Snacks and drinks. Beer fridays on site!

    Cons

    Leaders are still operating with ancient management skills from the 90s. I felt like a toxic old boy's club environment - just take a look at senior leadership! I was enthusiastic to leave after less than a year.

    Pros

    Senior management always gets their bonus

    Cons

    Very cliquish and high-school-like - performance is based on popularity and not on merit. Most employees are disposable and multiple large layoffs to adjust for sales not closing deals. Struggle to land new clients leads to constant change in strategy - stressful to staff and creates an obvious lack of synergy and connection between management and employees. Age discrimination abounds with seasoned professionals often passed over for promotions in favor of cheaper / inexperienced employees that will do as told.
