  1.  

    Pretty good company, unfortunately it was bought out and most centers were closed

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Verifications part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This company really appeared to care about its employees. Instead of immediately firing underperforming individuals they would have one on one meetings (with everybody, not just underperforming) and show where you can improve and tips on how to go about doing it.

    Cons

    Well as stated in the title the company was bought out. A few months after being bought out they announced that pretty much all centers were closing that were previously held. At least they gave us 6 months notice, which is somewhat rare these days and much appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    (To the new parent company) The 6 month notice was really appreciated. If you must close a center give as much notice as you can afford as it goes a long ways and makes a difference.

    I worked at Verifications full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    They were really flexible and willing to work with me on my schedule. I have little kids, so that was a huge plus.
    There were lots of opportunities for advancement, and they liked to first promote within the company when they can.

    Cons

    The Executive Management team was very secretive about what was going on at the company. Would never find out about any changes until after the changes happened, but you knew a change was coming, just by their actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just tell your employees what's going on.

    Pros

    Nice location in western suburbs.

    Cons

    Clueless upper management who has know idea of the complexity of their systems. Ridiculous vacation policy. Outsourcing initiatives. Several failed attempts at pouring money at consultants to rewrite systems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do exit interviews. You might learn something.

    I have been working at Verifications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Great co-workers
    -Nice facility
    -Good vending machines!

    Cons

    -Low Pay - no increases, no opportunities to grow
    -Very very high expectations, no rewards. Lower level employees are expected to work over 2 hours of mandatory OT, but mgmt/supvs do not stay to help. The expectation is for the lower level employee to drop everything at mgmt request. This includes skipping your lunch/break and stay after your scheduled shift.
    -No training/learning. It is expected for employees to learn on their own. There are no training sessions/documentation. The expectation is for employees to "mess around" in the new system to teach themselves.
    -Mgmt pushes back on everything and provides no support to lower level employees.
    -High level mgmt has no insight into day-to-day which in turn means the employees have to high level resource to go to.
    -There are 2 different facilities and both are treated very different. Not one team.
    -I could go on and on...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well, now that the company has been bought out, employees are hoping for positive change. In the mean time, be honest with your employees (too many secrets), replace some members of management/supervisors that are completely out of touch with their departments and have no people skills. Provide a better compensation program and allow for growth. Bring other departments into the various centers.

    Former Employee - Information Technology in Minnetonka, MN

    I worked at Verifications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Top performers are a great to work with and very motivated.
    Some of the technology is very current and relevant.
    Opportunities to expand your knowledge and learn new technologies.
    Flexible work schedule and telecommuting.
    Some of the products and very good and competitive in the market.
    Could be a very promising place to work if changes were made.

    Cons

    Very high turnover.
    Little emphasis on work/life balance. Unspoken expectations to work many, many hours to try and achieve company goals.
    Poor two way communication.
    Evident lack of overall project planning.
    No accountability structure in place. Bottom performers never have to meet standards and contribute little to meeting the goals of the organization.
    Understaffed in many positions. Resources have far too many responsibilities.
    Learning opportunities are often taken on personally rather than team organized.
    Little, if any, documentation for many processes in information technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication and project planning.
    Provide incentives to retain top talent.
    Mentor and support all your leaders to help them improve.
    Create accountability structure so merit will be correctly recognized.
    Emphasize training and reference materials.
    Cross train your employees so you don't have single points of failure.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, President of the company will know your name, I feel good about the products we represent and the nature of the work we do.
