A coworker once told me "everyone smart at VSS has already left." and I am starting to believe it.

    Pros

    Very good people. Small closely knit team. Nice working atmosphere. Complete freedom to make decisions regarding your work. If you are self-motivated you can do a lot to improve your skills and try new technologies here.

    Cons

    Not a very challenging job, but it is only for me. Management is stingy when it comes to buying new equipment or upgrading the office. Virtually no benefits or perks. Working from home is not looked kindly at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They definitely don't need my advice. The way things go means that the management does many things right. I would just ask for more order in Engineering, but not everybody agrees with it.

    Was once a great technology with lots of possibilities. Poor quality and even poorer management is all that's left.

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

    Pros

    Once a leader in technology and a company with lots of energy and promise.

    Cons

    Today a new churn of crop try hard to make something sound good but the bottom line is the technology is confusing for everyone especially the end user and most employees. The koolaid is strong for the new and nieve but the truth surfaces and the fog clears when you receive your first commission check. It's a scam with no responability. The lucky few who make any money benefit from all the cherry picking. The now President and cronies Lure you in with talk and hype but nothing changes..no matter how many VPs and Directors they churn through. What a waste of something great. Maybe Danahur will turn thing around...but at what cost?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck...Your either next on the chopping block or your enjoying the view from the safe secure top. While all your hard working quiet employees continue to wonder how this company makes any money and stays open another quarter.
