      Senior management have killed the culture

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great teams, lower level employees genuinely want to help and are trying their best, middle-management do what they can and really care but their hands are tied. Nice offices.

      Cons

      Senior management just don't seem to care about anything. Suppliers often not paid for months on end - no one seems to care. No one will help. Long term, valuable employees are very unhappy and at risk of leaving. Again, no one cares. Key staff members leave and are not replaced - the work is simply shifted to other already overworked team members with no pay increase to match the new levels of responsibility. The general assumption is that Vistage want people to leave and are trying to reduce the office to the absolute bare minimum of employees. The service levels have dropped considerably from 4 or 5 years ago. HR provision is shocking. Again, it seems that they just do not care. This used to be a great company to work with.

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You are supported by great marketing events and promotional material.

      Cons

      It's autocratic, the role and training is robotic and process driven. It feels like a pyramid sell.

      Best Company Ever!

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Vistage is the happiest, most growth oriented business I've ever worked at. The people are genuinely wonderful. New staff always comments the same thing, "everyone here is so genuinely nice!" And it's true. My coworkers are intelligent, talented, motivated, funny and focused on growing as people and contributing to the company's vision. We have a clear plan for where we are going as an organization, and all of our hard work results in a very successful company that offers stability and rewards to its employees. Our CEO is inspiring, focused and most importantly competent. He makes right decision after right decision and it creates an environment were good decision making and proactive performance is celebrated and highly rewarded. It doesn't get much better than this company!

      Cons

      Vistage is for those people who are finally ready for a healthy, sustainable, engaging career at a company that truly values its employees and provides value to the world.

      Pros

      -San Diego-based -Great Christmas parties -New office

      Cons

      -Extremely high turnover (I was only there 3 years and the 4th most tenured in a department of 22 individuals.) -Regurgitation of the same projects, with new names -Extremely siloed- sales and marketing and brand should know what each other are doing, right? -Disconnected upper management -Annual layoffs were a quiet expectation -Fake “corporate culture” that alienates those not brown nosing department heads -Out of touch with Member and Chair needs and feedback -Frantically and reactive mindsets -Positioned quantity versus quality goals against departments, a lose-lose end.

      Disorganized mess

      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great employees and staff. Everyone is generally nice and helpful. Corporate office is nice and there are cool events .

      Cons

      Management is seriously lacking leadership skills. Departments and teams are siloed so it’s hard to know what is going on in the organization. There are no clear processes and everything is a wild goose chase. There is red tape everywhere and it’s almost impossible to get things done quickly. The HR team is nice but they are lacking leadership, this was not always the case in years past. No career pathing - it seems like they don’t care if employees leave

      Pros

      Good break rooms, decent location, okay perks.

      Cons

      All the company does is regurgitate what they've done and spit it out as something new and exciting for the gawking rabble to swallow up, such as the emerging leaders program.
