    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.

    Pros

    Its not hard to do iOS troubleshooting. Pretty simple job all in all

    Cons

    The point system is bogus. The insurance is hella expensive and offers coverage to their network doctors so good luck with that. So working 40 hrs a week, no insurance, and a shoddy point system means if you get really sick, and you can't get a doctors note, you get a point or 2 points on the weekend. And that's when you feel like just a number. Just a disposable number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep doing what you're doing with work but seriously consider revising this cut throat, iron hold on attendance or you will push away those who are a valuable asset.

    I have been working at VMC Consulting as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The vendor contract position I got from VMC is well compensated and the company has provided satisfactry supports. The stress level, compared to the one I got from the position where I was FTE, is much much lower than FTE position and pay level is comparable or slightly better even though other benefits such as medical are lagging just a bit But overall, I recommend the company to look for contact positions in IT field.

    Cons

    Negotiating pay level with the company is tough but it is not just with this compay. You have to prove you are worthy enough to ask for raise.

    Pros

    The admins were all great to work with

    Cons

    The COO of the company, is Verbally abusive, belittling, condescending, and yells obscenities at the top of his voice. Human Resources does nothing, except store any complaints about him under the carpet. This man has had so many people complain about him, but the Manager's turn a blind eye. If you decide to become an admin there, remember you are expendable and you don't matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people that actually do the work, instead of just the brown nosing managers.

    Pros

    Decent pay and hours. Being a vendor for Microsoft isn't bad because you get a few of the perks. Alright benefits once you qualify.

    Cons

    You are still just a vendor. In my experience, you are almost always hired by an employment agency, then they will keep you on after a year. During that year, you pretty much get no benefits (vacation, PTO). No real opportunity for advancement.
