Generally an all around 4 out of 5. Fast pace. Emerging Space. Interesting technologies. Worth the ride.

Pros

The company is in a unique niche space that is fast growing and still evolving, which presents a great deal of variety of opportunities to the company. There are some clearly differentiated technologies that others don't have.

Cons

There have been some growing pains in the company, but i guess this is not uncommon in other ventures in a high velocity environment, but just need to make sure you get through it. Could use more process, policies, infrastructure and planning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lot of opportunities bring to you a double edge sword -- Gotta prioritize.
Get more feedback from your employees from bottom up to the top, and across.

    Pros

    The base pay is decent.

    Cons

    Difficult and unstructured management/business plans. Lot's of internal politics. LOTS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.
