    Pros

    Volt is truly the biggest "small business" I know. So much potential for growth and connection with senior leadership. Years spent hear rival decades at larger companies in terms of exposure to complex and challenging assignments.

    Cons

    Some employees insist on working remotely, which lowers morale.

    Advice to Management

    Come into work everyday. The best place to have important conversations isn't over email.

    Pros

    If all you want is a paycheck, this is the company for you.

    Cons

    After nearly 10 years in the same position I am no better off than someone who started a week ago. There is no contact with Volt Reps (and they are on-site) unless you initiate it. The health insurance plan we are offered is a farce. Of course, no vacation or retirement plans, and they have begun the process of eliminating paid holidays as well.

    My management (corporate employees) at this very large international corporation have always been very happy with my work, and have given me great reviews (process initiated by me, never by Volt). Unfortunately, as "contingent" employees we don't appear in the headcount, and won't be hired by the Corporation.

    There are reasons I haven't left before this, but the end is now in sight.

    If you decide to work for Volt, expect nothing, and you won't be disappointed.

    Advice to Management

    Employees in long-term positions should not be treated like 2-week temporaries.
