    I worked at Visier full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay is sufficient, benefits are alright. Central location with a gym in the building. Lots of restaurants nearby. Snacks and drinks. Beer fridays on site!

    Cons

    Leaders are still operating with ancient management skills from the 90s. I felt like a toxic old boy's club environment - just take a look at senior leadership! I was enthusiastic to leave after less than a year.

    I worked at Visier full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are some employees who are true thought leaders in the HR space Product delivers true value. Clear leader in the workforce analytics space

    Cons

    Product is an extremely difficult sell. Probably needs to be supplemented with an analytics platform to make it more attractive to the masses in HR Pockets of executive management are painfully immature which has led to disfunction in their groups.

    Pros

    Working on a worthwhile product for which people care about getting the right numbers.

    Cons

    Long hours and little time off - exhausting. More money than I needed with no time to enjoy it. Bugs may not be acknowledged and scheduled for fixing until they cause customer complaints.

    I worked at Visier full-time

    Pros

    Friendly smart co-workers. Some work flexibility depending on which team you are on. Good solution for HR companies. You can learn a lot of domain knowledge about HR if you are interested in it.

    Cons

    External people (mostly ex SAP) are hired for almost all new positions. Internal employee growth is not a priority (not counting lip service). No realistic path for working on what you're interested in. The company does not care about your career growth, only what job title you have. Expected timeline for advancement is unreasonable unless you happen to know/be management from Crystal/SAP. Not much transferrable technical knowledge because of proprietary tech Pay is low when workload and opportunity costs are taken into account.
