      Great company, if you can ever get in

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great people to work with, very open to fresh ideas no matter how new you are. Great benefits and events that keep the workplace fun (beer hour, special activities for holidays, etc.) and amazing benefits for full time employees (commuter benefits, tuition reimbursement, vacation time)

      Cons

      If you're a temporary employee, good luck getting converted. Your colleagues will treat you fine but the company excludes you from pretty much everything, no benefits through the temp agency, and you'l be strung along in terms of getting converted to a full time role.

      Executive Management doesn’t walk the talk

      Pros

      Beautiful buildings in a great area. Great benefits and RSU payout

      Cons

      Believe everything you’ve read in prior reviews. Company culture is not what they want you to believe. Bullying and harassment at high levels is tolerated. Micromanagement at high levels is the norm. All that experience you came to the company with will not be valued.

      Thank you for taking the time to post your review. Please reach out to your manager or HR if you feel you are being bullied. That is not the culture we want at Vertex and we will make sure it is corrected.
