Pros

- Colleagues have high level of expertise - Friendly work environment - Interesting projects in a variety of food policy related fields - Opportunities to travel, and work with collegues in a variety of countries

Cons

- There is a strict ceiling for employees who don't have a PhD. Master-level research support positions do not tend to offer much opportunities for career advancement. - While salaries can go up according to effectiveness on the job, there isn't much opportunity for increasing/changing of responsibility - Overall salaries are on the low side - Relatively low salaries and lack of career advancement for non-PhD staff leads to a fair amount of turnover

Advice to Management

Need to continue efforts at creating career tracks for individuals who do not have a PhD.

    Pros

    In the world of Immigration industries, Vmake Visas has one of the highest pay ranges and best benefits any employee can imagine. Work/life balance was pretty flexible here. I used to take out time for my family and also Vmake always helped in need. Unfortunately, i have to shift to some place far or I would have been working there. I will keep trying to apply and get back in if i again get a chance. i would refer my friends and relatives who are seeking a job position in this profile to join Vmake visas. Thanks for everything!!

    Cons

    There were no downsides in this company
