    Pros

    Employees who were not committed and not contributing are now gone
    Improved focus and stronger future
    Merger with Netscout should be a positive given strong leadership and constant positive results. Go to Glass Door and read their reviews
    Netscout should bring an improved high technology emphasis
    Great products and technology
    Dedicated and very knowledgeable associates remain committed to making VSS best in our business

    Cons

    A lot of recent negative reviews from employees who have left but the culture seems to be more positive with the changes

    While some times it's hard, companies need to go through changes in order to progress to the next level. People struggle and say negative things but those who stay end up winners. Don't listen to the negative comments. People who leave companies leave for a reason and it's not always because the company is bad. A few leaders have left and are creating a negative buzz which is not deserved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on making VSS a positive environment
    Remember your associates are your best asset
    Keep improving the focus and growing the business beyond a startup mentality
    Ensure people stay through the merger transition so they can see the great company VSS can be growing to the next level

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at VSS Monitoring.

    Interview

    The interview process was very disorganized. It was about 4 sets of interviews over a month. Each time I met 3-4 people, who sometimes showed up and sometimes didn't. Each time I came in, the position was reporting to a new manager. Red flag.
    The interview itself was quite easy. Easy predictable questions.

    Interview Questions

    • None...standard stuff out of a textbook. What's your 3 top skills? Where do you want to be in 5 years? Your resume looks great....I know that's not a question, but I guess I was supposed to speak to that.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was not cool. I came in interviewing for one position, then they changed the title and pay on me on the offer letter.
