    I have been working at Vision Critical full-time (More than a year)

    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. 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!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the awesome work!

    I have been working at Vision Critical full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People and culture are definitely a selling point. Executives and senior leadership, at least from my experience, have a very open personality where they communicate with people beyond just their direct reports. Town halls are put on and they include the senior leaders speaking to the entire company. Those are great for updates on where the business is going and how things are going presently.

    Cons

    There seems to be some tension between departments. Almost somewhat 'cliquey'. Causes struggles when people from different departments have to work together.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to integrate people in your own department with other departments on a social level so that when the two have to work more closely it is less stressful.

    Employees are friendly, motivated to contributing the best, allowed to make decisions and give suggestions, happy to be part of a great team with a great HR leader who coaches & mentors all levels.

    Due to a lot of changes in the company, sometimes employees are anxious, hopefully it will settle down soon.

    Continue utilizing your VC leaders as a sound board for the employees and to ensure organization success.

    VC is a great place to work; the people are great, the atmosphere is fun, there is a lot of growth opportunity and everyone is very welcoming and friendly within the workforce. The benefits are great and you are rewarded for great work and behavior. Senior management definitely listens to your input regardless of career level or title.

    Cons

    There is a lot of changes and movement happening currently; if you're not able to handle strong and constant change this may not be the right environment for you.
