    I worked at Vistatec full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Vistatec was on the whole a good place for me to advance my career as project manager. I improved significantly my communication skills over email and on the phone with both vendors and clients, which has proven extremely valuable in my next roles. I also learned a good bit of Excel through the countless hours of spreadsheet project tracking (I heard this has changed a bit for the better now) and overall gained a deep...

    Cons

    I never felt like I could put my background in Localization to much use while I was there. Having experience serves close to no purpose when you work with sales reps and clients who lack understanding of translation. In fact, it can work against you: as a project manager in Vistatec, I had little influence over the services sold, vendors used and delivery terms, so I would find myself at times coordinating projects I...

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Vistatec full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Many young motivated global professionals pass through this company so it offers many opportunities for networking, sharing experiences and making friends from everywhere in the world.

    Cons

    No need to hold a PhD in content analysis to spot the impersonally fake positive reviews on this company. Vistatec is a terrible employer, the only thing they are good at is marketing themselves as being what they are not: cutting edge, transparent, and inclusive. The internally developed tools provided are out of date, unsuitable for the job and often just don't work. Vistatec is completely behind in terms of systems...

    I worked at Vistatec full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Working from home privileges are useful (but HR only grant it if they like you) I made some good friends (who have all left now too)

    Cons

    Poor people management and completely unsupportive HR. If you get on their bad side they will make life hard for you. I've heard of several cases where staff reported bullying and no action was taken. Issues raised in exit interviews by staff leaving are not addressed. If you have a problem HR would rather you just quit. Salaries are very poor and generally not enough to pay rent and have a decent standard of living...

    "Genuine Current Employee Review"

      Positive Outlook

      I have been working at Vistatec full-time

      Pros

      Reading some reviews on here encouraged me to write my own review. In my opinion Vistatec is a human company, treats employees well, provides good job security, well respected in the industry, always improving and most good people do very well here - either by carving out a career for themselves within or using the experience as a platform to opportunities outside of Vistatec

      Cons

      My experience is that there is much growth with some systems and processes needing to catch up, and this can be a slow process, making for a challenging environment that may not suit everyone. I have many years of experience in this industry so for me personally I enjoy problems and the opportunities that result from helping solve them but I have seen less experienced people and / or those with a negative disposition...

      Advice to Management

      Look after your good people. Generally speaking I have no issues with management, some are better than others but that’s life. On a whole I think they get the important stuff right. Perhaps stating the obvious, but would suggest people take the extreme negativity written here with a pinch of salt. I would recommend anyone researching Vistatec to reach out to a real person for a more mature and balanced review.

      Some of the staff are pleasant. Weekends off Has running water available. Hot and cold taps. Doors and windows Electricity available Clocking off. Days off. Holidays. As far away from vistatec as possible.

      I worked at Vistatec full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      - flexi-time - that's really the only positive thing I can think of. Most employees just talk about how bad the place is on a daily basis.

      Cons

      - no career nor learning opportunities - progression is impossible; - low pay & little time off; - working from home is not really possible. HR tries to micro-manage everything employees do and is only flexible with some people; - outdated tools and unnecessarily complicated procedures; - middle and senior management does not trust employees and treats them like children, creating a stressful environment; - managers...

      I worked at Vistatec full-time

      Pros

      - Extremely great employee benefits - Company are introducing more in house events - Excellent flexi time policy with start and finish time - Extremely great team morale and friendship built here - Performance Reviews

      Cons

      - Carrier progression can be a bit "foggy" ... (until you start asking questions regarding expectations and goals) - TL's/Managers should get more involved with events/involvement - Inter-department bonding might be a good idea ??

      Advice to Management

      Great company, that needs a few small adjustment (what company doesn't'!!).. Continue to focus and manager-employee relationships!

      Pros

      Working from home option is great. The company is also investing and growing so there are good career opportunities. Nice bunch of people to work with. Really strong on technology and this shows with some really amazing clients too. Overall my experience has been really positive.

      Cons

      Localisation is always challenging! Customers are demanding and technology keeps changing, but this has been the case in my previous companies. Personally, I like a challenge.

      Advice to Management

      Social events have been fun - more of these would be great.

      Flexitime Scheme lets you enter as early as 7:30, or as late as 10:00. Free coffee, milk and tea. Water-boilers, toasters, microwaves available. International (mostly European, but with Asian, Latin American and African elements) workforce. Facilities and areas are sufficiently clean and tidy. While turnover is apparently high, top management is experienced. Computer hardware is responsive enough. CAT tools licenses...

      Cons

      Top management does not engage in communication (even non-verbal) with anyone, not even for small talk. While I could be generalizing, this has been my experience. I understand they come from an IT background, but this is a small company after all where people meet in the aisles all the time. The amount of manual work involved in keeping track of projects due to a lack of investment (in time and money, IMHO) in software...

      Advice to Management

      You seem to enjoy participating in events with your clients and other companies. Employ some of your time devising ways to communicate your vision and motivation as a company to motivate employees; marketing brochures can only do so much. Don't let HR handle the human element of your company on its own. People feel unheard and unspoken to.
