An Insider's view of Vista Consulting Group

What are some social events your company does?

As our team is growing so quickly, our full team has quarterly outings in different cities to rekindle connections with one another and to relax. We have done TopGolf, Escape Room, Happy Hours just to name a few. It is critical that we continually build that comradery and Vista family bond.

Ryan Richards

Director, Customer Success

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I’ve been with Vista for 15 months and recently transitioned into a new role serving as product manager of our QuickStart application and providing technical oversight on BOSS engagements. This role didn’t initially exist, but we recognized a need and with my technical background, it was perfect to dive headfirst into it.

Associate Director, Business Applications

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The #1 thing we do to unlock creativity on the team is hiring smart, passionate people with a strong sense of personal accountability. I find that if we do that well, and if we as management then spend our time training, enabling, and removing roadblocks, then every team member can be themselves and bring all their creative energy to bear.
