Fast-Paced, but Very Poor Communication

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
During my short time at Vendasta, there were many instances that made me realize this wasn't a great place to work. They oversell themselves as a company that revels in team-bonding and life-work balance. However, as my colleagues expressed working almost double their hours to stay on top of day-to-day work, with no help from upper management to help with more incoming and overbearing work, it became difficult to root for the company. I went through a restructure that I was not informed of previous to being hired. My role as a "Marketing Strategist" was changed to "Account Coordinator" without being notified (which is against labour standards, but they didn't even have me talk to HR or sign any forms for this). My training for this position was cut short after a month, while my duties that I had been trained for changed suddenly - while I was told it would take 5-6 months to train for my position. I asked to be moved to a department that desperately needed more help, and I was told that they would love to have me, but any changes wouldn't happen for a month or longer. It was an overall great experience meeting the people that worked there, however, the expectations and workload don't match the salary or vision they try selling you from the start. Also, good luck getting any sort of raise if you're not an executive - the poor starting wage is the best you'll get unless you fight tooth and nail for something better. Good stepping-stone company, but look elsewhere if you already have experience.

Official response from Vendasta

17 February 2021
It is unfortunate to hear you didn’t have a great experience in your short time at Vendasta. Our Marketing Services division had some organizational changes, and we aimed to be transparent about the new roles. Thank you sincerely for the feedback. We’ll be able to meet with the team to discuss how we can improve in the future. To speak specifically to pay, we have an annual review process regarding raises for all employees to ensure we always have an eye on the value of our people and their skills. It was good to hear that you had a great experience meeting and working with your team. We recognize it can be hard working remote, and wonderful team members can make all the difference!

Wouldn't wish my worst enemies working here

The company offloads too much work on too few people in their Marketing Services department. Vendasta often goes on firing sprees, with no reason given to those fired and work loads simply added to existing employees. Work/Life balance is slim to none, the company expects participation in lunch-hour seminars (called Lunch and Learn) which you are not compensated for. They claim these seminars are optional but you are disciplined if you do not attend. The company also has a history of homophobia, transphobia and misogyny that it can't seem to shake. Don't work here.

The environment provided endless food as perks

They are doing many things well, but there is a need for a great deal of improvement. They boast flexible hours but do not seem to appreciate hard working employees.
