    It was a nice learning experience and a close interaction with onsite and offsite teams.

    I worked at V-Soft Consulting Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The firm has pretty good start-up training for employees and it goes as as long as almost one year on the floor.

    Cons

    There aren't really much challenges that I really felt in the firm but at times some onsite and offsite variation in opinion may occur.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for the great working atmosphere but I guess the Senior management should work directly with Freshers and get first hand feedback at skip level.

    I have been working at V-Soft Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    It's honestly very difficult to think of any reasons why someone should work here. We have won some awards somehow and are very good at inflating statistics to make it seem like we're a legitimate company.

    Cons

    It all starts at the top here. Owner ship is greedy and clueless. The only thing of importance to them is increasing profit and they do not care about employee well being, fairness, or bringing any sort of ethics to their business. If you work here, be prepared to be surrounded by amateurs who do not care; you will have to do other peoples' jobs quite frequently. Feedback is neither encouraged or paid any attention, and as a result people get burnt out quickly at V-Soft. Anyone who stays beyond a year is most likely looking for a new job. V-Soft will twist numbers to portray themselves as a growing and thriving company, but on the inside the employees are unhappy and the CEO only cares about personal gain. There is no company culture to speak of- the only culture is one of fear and looking over your shoulder, as management is always trying to catch people not doing work. This is a bad, bad company.

    Advice to Management

    Learn something from your competitors. Value your employees and treat them as more than just a way for you to make another million.

    Pros

    V-Soft has won some awards and will look like good experience on your resume. This company provides a great opportunity to see what a poorly managed office environment looks like.

    Cons

    This company is just another investment for the owner, and it is painfully obvious.The building and the office have the feel of a prison rather than a tech hub. The owner does not care about employees and is only concerned with the bottom line. There is no company culture to speak of, and salaries and commissions are squeezed so that employees get next to nothing. Ownership will brag about reaching new milestones ($70M in 2015!) while cutting employees' bonuses and benefits for personal profit. The upper management team consists of a few highly unqualified individuals and one outside consultant pulling all the strings- aside from total profit, no specific goals or strategies are ever shared with the rest of the company. If you only care about increasing the size of another millionaire's bank account, this company is perfect for you.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and pay attention to what is going on within your company. Create an environment where feedback is actually acknowledged and acted upon. Remember that you would be nowhere without your employees.

    Pros

    It's a job, and they pay you.

    Cons

    The structure of the company is set up to reward placing employees, and there are no incentives to be ethical.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt a code of ethics

    Pros

    They'll hire just about anyone with a pulse

    Cons

    - Don't value their people - Will say or do *anything* to make a dollar - Misrepresent the size of the company in the US by including people in India - Anyone with solid work experience leaves. The long-timers are either dead-ended or can't do any better

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the lies and misrepresentations. Actually treat the employees well.

    Pros

    A birthday cake on your birthday.

    Cons

    There is no communication between management and staff. The company doesn't have a clear vision of where it wants to go or what it wants to be much less anything resembling a strategic plan. People come and go quickly - either they realize they screwed up and took a job with V-Soft or were new graduates who gained some experience to move to a company that offers a true career.

    Advice to Management

    Stop and figure out what your short-term goals and long-term goals are. Make sure they are realistic. Then, develop a strategic plan with feedback and input from your employees to get there.

    I worked at V-Soft Consulting Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    V-Soft has won some awards and will provide you some industry experience. They are a minority and woman owned company.

    Cons

    Where to start? Upper management is clueless for the most part. The US office is managed by outdated methods and useless knowledge from outside the industry. Ownership is greedy and hesitant to reward hard-working employees. Salaries are low and commission is structured so that only a select few will reap the benefits of those actually doing the work. The recruiting team is split between the U.S. and India and the two branches often compete against each other. Management will change their mind on major strategic initiatives on a whim with seemingly no rhyme or reason. This company is simply another investment for the owner to get rich. It is not a company that cares about its employees and it shows. Turnover is high because it doesn't take long for new hires to see they made a mistake.

    Advice to Management

    It's called capital! Invest some of your earnings back into resources and fair compensation for your employees if you actually want to see this company grow.

    I worked at V-Soft Consulting Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The good things were the people i worked with and the salary.

    Cons

    The bad things are that the mind set is that they do things a certain way (right or wrong) and that that way fits all customers. It is a difficult industry and this company will not do the things needed to be successful. Being honest with the company history to clients and then fixing the processes where needed is not going to happen, so I see no growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in business professionals and fix the communication and process breakdowns.

    Slow down, get involved without micromanaging

    I worked at V-Soft Consulting Group as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have a few direct clients in the Louisville, KY area. If you are a smart and quick worker, you can get a good percentage of the hourly rate.

    Cons

    When you travel back to India, its very easy to get your visa or even your extension denied. You will have to manage your technical and professional progress yourself, this is more of a body shipping business, they don't know what you are doing at the Client's office.

    Advice to Management

    Build teams and market solutions to the Client, rather than body shipping one consultant to one Client. Provide bench pay to all employees.
