    I worked at Victra-Verizon Authorized Retailer full-time

    Pros

    Great service to sell and commission pay out 2 times a month

    Cons

    Services can be pricey to customer, accessories are priced amazingly high, commission checks can be sad to look at if you are in a location that doesnt pull a lot of traffic.

    I worked at Victra-Verizon Authorized Retailer full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    When I started with this company it was amazing for the first year. Great compensation, competitive environment, people that cared about their performance and their reputation and great leadership. Literally my favorite company to work for. But, they made a lot of moves in senior management and promised to make this a better place and went off firing or laying off a bunch of people. It seemed as if they didn't care about people, even though their message was that they do care. Very heartless way of conducing business and treating people.

    Cons

    They promise they're getting better. Literally promise, but, they actually never get better. They sell a dream about becoming a better company to work for. But it just seemed to get worse. 2 years ago, this really was a great company to work for. Now they pretend they "invest" in leadership, and that's as far as it goes. You're not a person nor a human. You're a number and a nobody. Sad, but true.

    Pros

    Victra is a small enough company where you can find some unique opportunities to grow. Culture was awesome at the HQ but change in leadership, turnover, and instability has led to a sinking culture. I have had some select leaders make an impact on my development and I am grateful for that.

    Cons

    Poor leadership development Constant change in processes and "restructuring" creates job insecurity and truly makes you wonder if leadership knows what they are doing. Impulse decisions effect lives and production...something I do not think they care much about. Awful performance reviews - No formal process and when I did receive my positive review...I was provided with broad explanations and no professional development came out of the discussion. Sinking culture - I had the unique ability to see the growth of Victra's culture in the HQ. But I also witnessed how it deteriorated. Communication - It is one thing to have constant changes but when you can't properly communicate these changes it creates a mess. Feedback? Ya right. Transparency? Don't count on it. I understand companies need to do what they have to do given the circumstances. But how you execute these decisions is what matters. Am I upset I was laid off? No. I am disappointed that I was told one day before I was set to return from furlough that I was being let go. I am even more disappointed my "boss" did not have the professionalism to be the one to reach out to me.
