    Former Employee - Microsoft Xbox Escalations Support in Irving, TX

    I worked at VMC Consulting as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Microsoft, Contract, Las Colinas TX: Friendly co-workers, beautiful campuses, free sodas, great food at decent price, break time entertainment (fooseball tables, shuffleboards, tv's). Managers worked with you to ensure you understood your job, adequate training.

    Cons

    Microsoft, Contract, Las Colinas TX: Mass lay-offs were abrupt and very sudden. No opportunities for raises or bonuses, few promotion opportunities, and procedures are still in early-development-like stages, even though the place has been around since before 2005.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Microsoft, Contract, Las Colinas TX: Provide advance notice for mass layoffs.

    I worked at VMC Consulting full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This position is based in an excellent environment and the culture is second to none. There are several other companies working in conjunction in this environment with many many opportunities to advance or change roles.

    Cons

    Can be stressful when it gets busy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reducing the team size will not increase productivity. It only generates more stress from higher workloads.
