I have been working at VMC Consulting as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

There are some great people, I've established a great relationship with a specfic recruiter which has absolutely advanced my career. There are a lot of job 'options' so you can always utilize different skills. A good company to get things to put on your resume, but not a career.

Cons

Benefits are a joke (it's a 'savings opportunity') which is essentially coupons worth less than your weekly premium. I lost my $500 FSA last year to a company no one could ever get me in touch with. They take a LOT of your salary, they have to in order to cover the ridiculous overhead. I have 3 direct managers at VMC (all of which have changed at least once in the 5 months I've been here) and they can never directly answer my questions, it takes at least 5 emails to get an answer to "where can I pick up my paycheck?"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut out the middle man, or at least 3 of them.

    I worked at VMC Consulting full-time for more than a 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.

    I worked at VMC Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent salary, but nothing close to industry standards.
    Impressive contracts, although quickly driven into the ground by incompetent management

    Cons

    Horrible "stab you in the back" mentality from anyone above middle management
    No support from HR when reporting unethical or harassing behavior
    Faulty HRM systems, constantly messing up paychecks
    Upper management with zero regard for employee morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    learn from your failures. Perform a top-down scrub, and remove "leadership" positions where all of the work is delegated to subordinates. Offer reasonable benefits
