    I worked at VMS Info full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The truth is you stayed for the people you worked with but the CEO & CFO came from finance and thought sales people were no more than trained monkeys.

    Cons

    I believe I've told you what the cons were

    I worked at VMS Info full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They had the industry-leading platform for monitoring competitive advertising...

    Cons

    ...but they fell apart because of mis-management, and for not keeping up with the times (their platform did not track digital advertising).

    I have been working at VMS Info full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The hours were flexible and the work environment was not as toxic as you'd expect. Decent people and absorbing work all around. My manager on tje night shift was the best. Go Scott.

    Cons

    No mobility; you remain in the position in which you were hired. The pay wasn't great and the job ended way too soon. Company closed, I believe.

    Advice to Management

    Wish I'd had the opportunity to see the company enter a new era but it went out with the old rather suddenly.

    I worked at VMS Info full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was a great place to work at first, last few years there went bad, then company just up and died overnight. The work was very interesting and cutting edge. We had a great CIO.

    Cons

    It went belly up overnight and did not have any warning. The direction of the company was offset from reality of modern media demands. The executives and owners did not understand the technical side of the business enough.

    Advice to Management

    Don't dump the company next time. Listen to employees more, less draconian methods of running things.

    Pros

    Knowledgeable colleagues who really know their industry and pride themselves on knowing what their clients want and need. Great technology and delivery of services. Good feedback from colleagues.

    Cons

    Zero vision for the future. Inability to compete on pricing. Lack of desire to promote from within and inability to keep promises for promotion from within. Bad management, particularly at the executive level. This is why the company failed after 35 years.

    Advice to Management

    Work with young talent.

    I worked at VMS Info full-time

    Pros

    Working with clients (the ones that weren't overly needy) on a daily basis, helping them get the most out of tracking their media coverage nationwide.

    Cons

    Sometimes unreasonable expectations from management - mainly, the NYC headquarters - on sales goals for a particular month. Also, a general refusal by management to listen to input from those dealing with customers on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and listen to your staff in the various offices, as these are the people dealing with the bulk of VMS' clients on a daily basis. They're not the ones signing the big 'headliner' contracts, but without those clients, the company is headed for ruin.

    Pros

    Interesting business, nice colleagues, great IT team, great location (Time Square) Company tried to transform itself rapidly, but unfortunately failed.

    Cons

    The company went under, so there are no more opportunities in this specific company, although many former employees now work for competitors

    Advice to Management

    A better strategy that would have enabled the company to survive would have helped. Perhaps management needed to be more reflective.
