    I love this company!

    Independent Consultant (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsThis company, owned by a service-disabled veteran, understands the needs to balance work and life. They are not only willing, but actively encourage, teleworking and flexible schedules. They are amazing with their "forward-thinking" approach to both management and projects and they let you take on whatever additional tasks you want to do and support you doing just that.

    ConsBecause they are a relatively small firm, the work is occasionally a little thin on the ground. They are a government contractor so they can only offer work for which they win the contracts.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Small company, but not small company feel.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHR staff is responsive, especially when there are questions. Training is up to individual employees and VETS offers online training in many areas, free to the employee.

    ConsLittle to no contact from VETS with their offsite employees makes it easy to feel detached from VETS. Guidance is only offered if employee specifically asks a manager. Otherwise, employees are on their own and work at the whims of their client. No guidance as to what is within or not within your responsibilities. It is easier to identify with the client company than with VETS and employees feel they belong more to customer than to their own company. No feedback from VETS, whether you are doing a good job or not. Professional goals are more to fulfill basic HR practices. No follow up on goals achievement. If VETS is getting new business, employees are not hearing about it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConnect to your employees who are on customer sites. Give us news besides the quarterly newsletter. Newsletter only talks about awards and award winners and not about the rest of the company. Make sure your managers are connected to your employees, if you are not going to bother. Let your offsite employees know about wins or proposals that are in the pipeline.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Company if You are close to Corporate Office

    Systems Operator (Current Employee)
    Fairview Heights, IL

    ProsPay is decent and benefits are above average.

    ConsIf you do not work at or close to their corporate office, forget the support you will need to advance your career. Management does not have a clue what I do or how well I do it. I feel very underappreciated and undervalued.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employees no matter where their work location may be. VP, don't make promises to employees you had no intention of keeping in the beginning.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
