PV does one thing very well, hold meetings. Basically the entire company exists to sell DIrect TV franchises and ATT products, it’s a corporate middle-man. The entire premise began from modifying and repackaging the designs of other companies. Now they push franchise opportunities for outdated entertainment services. They talk a LOT about the importance of their employees but don’t actually follow through. The pay and benefits are decent, except they change insurance providers every 6 months. This is NOT the place for a long term career. The staff is largely incompetent, the management irresponsible, and most people are only there because they’re near retirement and don’t want to change careers so late in life. The company is struggling to remain relevant and it’s not a good environment if you’re serious about wanting job security.
Decent pay, benefits
Poor management; failing business; constant misinformation
Perfect Vision could of been a great place to work, except for the "southern good ol boy" mentality of ALL its management. If your a person of any other color except white, they will hire you ( kinda have to due to largest contracts with Multinational Companies) but will never ever make you feel welcome. They will "accept" you until they don't need you, or had a bad sales month. Compensation - normal practice is to change bonus structure in middle of bonus period. Most management here never even finished college, some came from other companies they ran into the ground. Long live the South.
Good exposure and pretty much left alone
Good ol boy culture
Awesome company, but they have a lot of changes being implemented. I would like to see more job security and stability with the company's staff. The company culture is one of a kind and the management is very friendly and knowledgeable of the company.
Little to no formal job training in most departments with high performance expectations...particularly in Sales. Goals conflict with reality daily. Annual sales convention isn’t really to celebrate sales people...just the most-liked and appreciated within the company...mostly those outside of Sales. Lack-luster health insurance (large deductibles), clique culture in some departments. Senior management is great (especially the CEO), but some lower level management seem to enjoy exercising psychological intimidation and should not be directly managing people AT ALL. Most employees are very cordial, not to be confused with sincerity. Best to avoid employment here if you can... unless you’re desperate like I was at the time I joined.
I have learned a lot working at Perfect Vision. They host monthly training classes for excel and other helpful subjects and the training are not mandatory. A typical day would be logging in, getting into the phone system, assisting dealers, and working on any side projects that we may have. We also have to make sure that our department email has been answered. This is a very laid back environment and they try to make sure that you are having a great time on top of making sure to we are getting our jobs done. There is a really good balance here. But some of the job positions here can and will be extremely stressful and you will feel underpaid by a lot. But overall, I love this company. I just feel like the advancement isn't very easy and that I have served my purpose here.
They provide lots of food for us, support the community, and is family oriented, they make sure to address each and every concern we may have and are very open with us all.
They should reevaluate some of their managers.
You are hired to sell what they manufacture but spend 80% of your time promoting and driving their dealer base to increase their video and satellite sales/activations for the various "Specialists". This earns virtually no commissions. It is indirect sales and is more like a sales support and call center (order taker) position and only slightly like an Account Manager position. Most of your time will be spent taking orders for other territories which earns you no commission and interferes with the amount of time you have to grow your accounts. You will be pressured to make a very acceptable amount of calls if they weren't always shorthanded because of their very high turnover. Obviously, their is something wrong with the company policies, procedures and management because the pay is very fair bu they can't hold on to employees. The high turnover speaks for itself.

As an Account Manager, selling is the job! The job description clearly lays out what the expectations are for the role. We have a team philosophy at PerfectVision, so it is expected that we help out in various territories because the company as a whole will benefit. It's not each person for them self! As for turnover, over 50% of the employees in the Inside Sales Department have been here for over 3 years and over 30% of the employees have been here for over 5 years. We have some that have been here for 20 years. That's something we are very proud of!
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at PERFECTVISION?
starting with this company, I loved working there!!! But you learn more about the environment while there. A lot of management there are unfair and you will find yourself doing all the work and someone else gets the rise or promotion. It's really sad.
HR was great!!!!! The company as a whole was nice just not the dept I worked in
no room to move up
The people you work with are great. I created long lasting friendships. Management can be better. It is very hard to move up and they are very tight fist with giving you a raise when you deserve it.
If you enjoy designing it's a great place to work. State of the art printing equipment. Assignments based on your design strengths. Whatever you're good at is what you do most of the time.
Slow or no career advancement opportunities in Marketing Dept
A great company if you want to learn and do it all yourself. Little or no internal communication, product management, and training is minimal. On-boarding is less than a week and confusing to new people. Management seems focused on other segments of the business and distracted. Workplace culture has deep political roots and tasks aren't completed without name dropping making it hard to accomplish goals without having an inside advocate.
great satellite company
un attainable sales goals
Very heavy workload and salary does not match. Do not recommend leaving another employer for this place because you will soon regret it. It's a very fun at times environment, but you must be careful in what you discuss. They have quite the control over their employees.
Fun group of people though you cannot trust almost anyone
Not a professional environment; more high school mentality
I would have wished for more compassionate managers as the ones in our department were not nice and would never tell anyone to be quiet. The best part of the job would have to be meeting everyone that works there or is coming onto the company.
Bought us lunch some days.
Very short breaks and no privaxy.
Perfect-Vision Manufacturing is a great place to work. They have a great staff to work with. Perfect-Vision goes out of its way to make sure all customers are happy and taken care of in a professional way. I have been employed there since January 12, 2015 and i have learned how to scan document, close out orders, claims, AP/AR. I have great co-workers whom have took the time out of their busy day to show me something new every day.
always learning new things
there are no cons
