    I have been working at VSE as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Internationally focused, so I got to work on some very high-budget global initiatives, which was definitely interesting and I got to see how current events around the world affected company behavior.
    My coworkers were very friendly, and definitely willing to answer any questions when I had them.

    Cons

    Highly competitive and fast-paced, not really my kind of environment
    The work assignments, when they came, were interesting and challenging, but sometimes it seemed like they forgot there was an intern there (sometimes even after I'd asked around to see if there was anything I could help with), although it didn't happen often.

  2.  

    Horrible company with self centered executive management.

    I worked at VSE full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There's no longer any "PROS" associated with VSE, as they've all been laid off, and it's a shame.
    Once the highly respected "Old Man" was forced out as the CEO this company has gone down hill. Maurice "Mo" Gauthier is an egotistical man who only cares about himself.

    Cons

    VSE is a "CON". The ELD Division, who is solely responsible for the past success of VSE, has been robbed of its profits and is now defunct. The men and women whom, for 19 years,made this company successful under the USARC contract, have all been laid off and left out to dry!

    No severance, no thank you for X years of service! Just a layoff letter blaming the govt. for their problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would address the Board of Directors and the Investors to re-think the CEO.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
