      Amazing company that takes care of it's employees

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      From what I've experienced so far this company goes above and beyond for their employees. From regular bonus schedules, to company sponsored events, to an industry leading 401k matching program, this company knows how to treat it's employees.

      Cons

      I've only been with the company a little over a month, but I have yet to find any actual cons of working for Vertex. Each time I discover something new about working for them, it always ends up being an additional bonus item.
