What people are saying about Vista Equity Partners
3 months ago
Four rounds of interviews with Vista Equity Partners, told they chose someone else, and the job has been reposted. Why can’t potential employers and recruiters just grow some balls and be honest. I’d much rather hear that someone didn’t like me or they heard something about me in the community, etc., then being lied to. Such total BS! Vista Equity Partners Management LLC

Work smarter not harder is greatly rewarded. There is a strong work life balance, but you have to be able to manage your time and your relationships. For reviews complaining it’s too intense, either your workload is imbalanced or you need to build skills to handle it. The EA jobs are relatively easy, the volume can be intense sometimes, if you’re working late can claim overtime hours/benefits so there’s a chance to earn more money. This is the easiest job I’ve had and the most rewarding, and I work 35-45 hours a week. The PE team works substantially harder than most anyone else, and they reap the rewards heavily….after pledging a few years of allegiance. Still, they only work late nights some times but not all. The firm rewards people at all levels with opportunities to grow and perks that can’t be beat, and it is still under 1000 people so everyone mostly knows everyone. If you’re upset about something or see a way to improve something, speak up and find a way to fix it. Everyone is pleasant and receptive.
Pay at first was bad, but with very hard work for 1-2 years, you can climb the ladder and reap benefits. Just takes a little elbow grease. Sometimes the speed of deals creates jams, but that’s a part of how growing businesses work, and if you’re not growing you’re failing. There are a handful of bad apples that tend to get managed out, and some snobs, but overall extremely diverse for a finance firm.1

Big money that can be thrown at problems to fix them
Vista Equity Partners purchased my former organization. Within 18 months, there has been 4 rounds of layoffs, and I'd expect more in the future. They ousted our CEO, along with every other leader in the organization and began cutting all US staff in favor of employees outside the country because labor was cheaper. Vista Equity Partners crushed an organization that was great to work for and likely will put even more people here out of work without a second thought.

- Some great coworkers - Pretty office - You can be extremely mediocre and excel (in admin area), but if you are an admin though I would say go elsewhere.
The Admin/EA management cultivates a passive-aggressive communication style which creates a toxic environment, needs better organization and management. Tons of mediocre people (in admin). Cares more about "optics" than the well-being of their workers. You cannot grow as an EA/in an admin role there but there is crazy amounts of favoritism so you can if you build up there. Weird agism and little to no diversity.2

Highly competitive co worker environment, best in class operators.
Work life balance, or lack there of.

The executive I support is amazing and has been with Vista for over 10 years. This person is humble, kind and wants me to succeed. This individual is brilliant and I could not be more fortunate in not only supporting them but working alongside this individual. The team of EAs are great and the Manager is thoughtful and truly wants me to prosper.
The COO/President of Vista does not see Executive Assistants as credible assists to the executive they support and the broader team. He does not value EAs does not want to compensate them at market value; he would rather the turnover continue. The COO/President refuses to heed the advice of HR, even though the admin team is beyond capacity and very underpaid.11
