    I worked at VMC Consulting full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a pretty tough one, if I had to say anything it's the number of parking spaces that you can use. Yes it was *THAT* hard to find a pro.

    Cons

    The biggest thing is that there's a very "with us or against us" culture inside VMC. There's the full time employees, the game testers, the call center people, and then the executives. The groups don't work together very well and bribery... er favors are the best (and sometimes) the only way to get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You weren't meant for this field, you should find something else

    I worked at VMC Consulting as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nothing good to say other than it is a job and paycheck

    Cons

    pay is not to standards; will pay as low as they can go

    if you do well as an employee don't expect a raise even near the cost of living for Seattle area

    Management is waiting for a spine transplant

    HR dept is there to protect executives and important employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management you might want to talk to the troops in the trenches and not the Managers and Supervisors.

    I worked at VMC Consulting

    Pros

    You are left alone to do your work, mostly.

    Cons

    Not concerned about employee development, they are more concerned about growing their contracts. Low pay and no real benefits and tried to bog down work with frequent unnecessary updates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay and provide benefits and then workers might stay longer.
