    I have been working at Vanderhouwen & Associates full-time (more than an year)


    I first worked as a contractor through VHA in a technical role. Later, I decided to make a career change and shift into recruiting.

    As a contractor:
    -VHA offers health insurance to contractors from day 1 and 401k after a year
    -VHA throws a christmas party for their contractors since many don't get to participate in one at their place of work
    -Some of the best people in IT recruitment work here

    As an employee:
    -Fun work atmosphere
    -Great mentorship
    -Hard work is rewarded
    -Ideas are listened to
    -Opportunities abound


    I've worked here for a year and while every job has it's down sides, nothing really worth mentioning here. I've had many jobs in the past 25 years and this is one of my favorites!
