    Company culture seems very variable by office (Pros above may not always apply)

    I have been working at Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc

    Pros

    Some manager and new younger staff are really great to work with and have excellent contacts and experience to tap into.

    Cons

    Salaries at VHB are lower than similar companies with similar benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More salary increases, and management needs to be less hungry to acquire new companies. More focus should be given to the existing offices and employees.
