  • Employee

When Vocus was Vocus there was no better place to work

3.39

Company Culture

Prior to going public it was a place focused on the employee. It was a place like no other i had worked. After going public and especially after merger with Cision it became more and more like a scene from the movie Brazil

Support from management

See above

Teamwork

We were always a good team no matter how dysfunctional the culture got

Freedom to work independently

We had a lot of discretion in how to approach our work

Internal Communication

Grading on a scale over my 13 years there. For most of that time i would give a 4. Quarterly meetings and approachable executives. By the end it was a 1 with managers and execs bold face lying and hiding from employees

Attitude towards older colleagues

I was the one of theoldest in company and it was never a factor

Career Development

None to speak of. No track for advancement

Work-Life Balance

Really good to begin with and never got that bad. Very rare occurence to have to work late or come in on weekends or holidays

Job Security

I was there for 13 years and left on my terms. But for many on my team after i left it was a muxj different experience. Original employees were largely purged in favor of the Cision team mbers
