    I have been working at Vault full-time (more than 3 years)


    The few employees that remain work in sales, research and editorial; mostly supporting the Legal vertical. These employees are dedicated, knowledgeable and great to be around. There are also a handful of sales people that sell subscription services to colleges career offices. The small team of sales and research employees are what's left of the original company; without them there would be NO reason to consider working here.


    The acquiring company (Infobase Learning), is majority owned by the CEO and a private equity group (VSS). The ONLY thing the owner cares about is $$$. Every year there are layoffs and every year departments get their budgets cut. You can imagine the working environment this creates...actually, you can't until you work here. Every year you have to perform with less support, less marketing, aging product and inferior technology. Fellow employees, Vault and Infobase Learning, constantly complain about their pay (no raises in years), poor website development, the management, and the Infobase Learning benefit's package. The number one reason people leave here is low pay, NO employee recognition, over monitored work environment (email & phone calls), NO raises and technology that is flawed or simply doesn't work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
