Former Employee - Contract Project Manager in Detroit, MI

I worked at Vaco

Pros

Fair pay rate for the responsibilities I was expected to perform
Staffing manager kept open line of communication
Standard benefits package

Cons

Salaried compensation, so no overtime pay despite 60-70 hours a week expected, but also had pay decreased if I took a day off.
Client manager was overbearing, micromanaging and outright mean.
Vaco did nothing to stop client treatment

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Salary means that paychecks are the same regardless of how many hours worked, whether that is more or less than forty. Don't let clients bully your staff.
