Viant Group Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
21Vianet Group the largest carrier-neutral Internet and data center service provider in China. It is the exclusive operator of Microsoft Azure and Office 365 services in China, and also houses data centers for IBM and others.
Technical Operator (Former Employee) says"You learn a station and repeat the action over 500 times a day. The work isn't hard, having to work next to a bunch of ladies that do nothing but gossip all day is. They often have petty feuds with one another, and you better hope to god you like the person your stuck working next to, because that's where you'll be for the foreseeable future. Management is distant and reactive, and often intervenes by calling people out by their actions but not by name in a group setting, so you know who their talking about. This leads to even more gossiping. The other major problem is a awfully high turn over rate largely due to gossip and management. You'll hear this phrase quite a bit "the work is easy, but the people suck." I started saying it myself after 3 months in. Cons: High premiums on insurance, Lots of Gossip, Management is reactive instead of proactive."
Finisher (Current Employee) says"If you are hurt they will not follow doctors limitations They don’t listen to anyone if there is a problem it’s there way only. Manger is very very cold person when have working you have to have feelings"
Technical Operator 3 (Current Employee) says"I've never worked for a company with such a high turnover rate. They rely a lot on temporary employees which contributes to the high turnover rate. The training is rushed and poor...the utility clerks pressure the trainers to get employees trained and signed off which leads to poor quality. The utility clerks also contribute to the high turnover rate...they are rude, disrespectful and incompetent. For $11-$12/hr who wants to deal with that? Cons: Wages, training, lack of communication"
Manager of Implementation (Former Employee) says"The people you work with are great. The mid-level management lacks the ability to properly communicate its wishes, goals, processes to the teams accurately/effectively thus creating animosity Cons: Training"
Sales (Former Employee) says"Ownership selfish...Toxic environment with unrealistic goals for sellers...no real upward mobility except for C-Suite...Been known to outsiders as a firing squad"
Factory Worker (Former Employee) says"It's a circus due to poor management I personally wouldn't recommend this job to anyone the work conditions are terrible and they are not willing to work with you when you need time off and when you are told to do one thing someone else tells you to do something different the 12 hour days are all day on your feet with the only seats being very uncomfortable stools that hurt to sit on Cons: Poor health coverage, poor management, difficult to contact HR, short breaks, poorly maintained restrooms, poorly maintained parking lot(all ice in winter)"
Operator (Current Employee) says"Management not the greatest. Your suppose to work 3 on 4 off then 4 on 3 off it's not true you are required to work Mandatory overtime. You work every holiday and the bonus there are to many rules to actually get one. They definitely dont care about your home life. Cons: Work to many hours"
Operator 1/ Back up Production Line Lead (Current Employee) says"I have worked for them for 3 years and just got my first raise. I work very very hard and am rarely recognized. I am a back up production line lead and am paid about what I'd be paid at McDonalds, maybe less. Management sucks and it's full of drama. But I stay. Only a 20 minute lunch! Cons: Only one 20 minute break in 8 hours, drama, poor management, mean supervisors"
Campaign Analyst (Current Employee) says"Its a great place to learn about the business, the people you work with are kind and helpful. The biggest negative about the job is the compensation, you will be underpaid for the amount of time you put into the job. And don't expect a thank you from your management or sales team, its expected."
Assembler (Current Employee) says"Viant could be a really nice place to work if the employees didn't swear so often and gossip about their co-workers. They will smile to your face then when you leave, they stab you in the back. The building is way too small for the amount of employees there so you are forced to share a table with other employees at break. Cons: It's a gossip mill and way too much swearing."
Machlnist (Current Employee) says"Management has no idea what they are doing and expect lower level employees to solve their problems. Poor raises. Company has been sold 4 times in 8 years."
Engineer (Former Employee) says"A typical day at work is attending a couple of meetings daily with enough time to be prepared and doing a lot of prioritization on tasks that contract customers assign to you or your team."
LACAssembly-Manufacturing Team Member 1 (Current Employee) says"I don't have much to say about Viant. Except they do have a great benefits package. The PTO s front loaded each year. They do offer a referral bonus. I do think that making equipment to save people's lives is awesome."
Claims Processor (Former Employee) says"Answering calls from medical service providers to answer questions about insurance claims, and settling in/out of network disputes. I learned how to use their data entry systems, and in turn learned how to be more organized. Management was fair and flexible. Normal office environment. The hardest part of the job is the amount of red tape that you sometimes must deal with."
