    I worked at Vangent full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company pay rate is competitive. They give you 3 weeks of training. They make it very easy to pass your test after training is done.

    Cons

    The quality call monitor are not consistent. The people who review calls don't seem to use the same guidelines for monitoring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management could use some leadership training, some ethics training as well.

    I worked at Vangent full-time

    Pros

    Excellent boss, Challenging work, new opportunities to learn while working.

    Cons

    Extra hours, not much understanding from the development teams, too many merger lay offs in 2013.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not lay off the talented and experienced from the combined strength, after merger with GDIT. Time would prove them useful.

    Pros

    Benefits are competitive. If you befriend the management you'll go places.

    Cons

    Work ethic is not evaluated, who you know is evaluated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the little guy. The person that rather let his/her work ethic do the talking other than talking.

    I worked at Vangent as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    My co-workers were awesome, the trainers made sure we were confident and knowledgeable before we got to the floor.

    Cons

    The distance for me was the only problem the office I was in was about 30 miles from home so when I lost my transportation I lost my job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a note from the Lawrence, Kansas management and training team they are awesome!

    I worked at Vangent as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The only Pro I can think of is that they offered health insurance and 401k.

    Cons

    Organization was poor. 10% of the people hired were very intelligent. Terrible hours, 30 minute lunch break. Supervisors and Managers did not have answers to simple questions posed by employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When considering Quantity over Quality it is good to put focus in Quality rather than having unorganized employees to fill a contract.
