Understanding managers and passionate coworkers. No meetings that should be emails.
Visionist was my first choice for employers!
I would say if I had to choose any company to spend 8+ hours of my day I would pick Visionist 10 times out of 10.
Holiday parties, company trips, and company gatherings. Pay is good and they really don't skimp on anything.
Lots of friendly people very willing to help teach/guide new developers.
Every day I wake up feeling excited about the work I'm doing.
At Visionist, it's been clear that they care about their employees from day one.
Company atmosphere is very open and supportive.
Hard work, creativity, enthusiasm, and team building are valued and appreciated.
Pick a random employee and they'll tell you how employee focused Visionist is.
