    Pros

    Talented Senior consultants; reasonable rates; profitable; empowered management to make decisions; no micro-management except by one Senior VP who was partial to certain people and unfair to others

    Cons

    It no longer exists since it was purchased by SAIC. They destroyed the culture and eliminated the people

    Advice to Management

    None since they no longer run the company

    Pros

    Competitive compensation, signing bonus and okay benefits. The recruiting process was easy, they did not request an in person interview.

    Cons

    Limited communication from managers, little visibility into the staffing process, virtual company spread out over the country allows for fewer networking opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more visibility into the staffing opportunities, empower consultants to be more active in participating in their own staffing.

    Pros

    Pays great, supportive management team, great continuing education resources, great internal knowledge base to rely on when you don't have all the answers on a project. Great travel benefits! Wonderful work environment and place to work!!!

    Cons

    Only downside is 80-100% as a consultant, but that's why we get paid well.

    Advice to Management

    Allow consultants to grow into higher level positions within organization. Also, possibly develop a formal mentoring program for those high quality consultants that have experience and exibit leadership qualitites.

    Pros

    Overall, my experience with Vitalize has been a great one. I have the opportunity to work for a high-profile client in one of the greatest cities in the world. I'm more than happy with my compensation and think (for their size)Vitalize does a great job. They don't hassle you or micro-manage and have been responsive when I've had a question. I had a choice when it came to clients to interview with, I can live where I want and fly around the country on the weekends, I can take time off as needed and have more control over the type of work I'm doing. They've eased any concerns I had about leaving a salaried position for an hourly one, and I'm 100% happy with my decision.

    Cons

    Large company so it's hard to have that "personal connection" that is felt with smaller firms No bonus for hourly employees 401K match is not great Travel to client site Sunday evening and home on Thursday

    Advice to Management

    I think there should be more help to hourly employees upon starting to navigate benefits and other territories that are probably relatively new (if coming off of a salaried position). This could be accomplished by having a HR resource assigned to new employees and reaching out to see about setting up a phone call to answer any questions that have come-up throughout the process. A more tailored orientation would also be good.

    Pros

    if you prefer a "small company" atmosphere this is the place to be, it seems everything the leadership does strives to maintain that. Most of the managers are more than competent and reasonable and flexible. Managers/Leadership welcome feedback

    Cons

    most managers are work-a-holics and though they try to maintain the attitude of having a work/life balance there is some unspoken expectations of work over most other things.

    Advice to Management

    be more open to enabling employees to work flexible hours (ie: 4 day work weeks, 7am-3pm days) right now an employee could do that if they really wanted to but they would get flack.

    Pros

    I have worked at Vitalize for nearly two years. I've had positive experiences with nearly every department in the company. Just about every person I come in contact with seems willing and able to help. Their yearly conferences are probably my favorite thing! Since the company is mostly virtual, it's great to be able to get together and associate faces with the names you've been working with. The locations are always great, too. Can't wait for the next one!

    Cons

    I wish there were more options and slightly better benefits now that Vitalize is part of a larger corporation, SAIC.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management and leadership team is open and willing to new ideas, even from younger employees.

    Pros

    Has a small company touch, despite rapid growing. My coworkers are some of the most caring people I have worked with. Management is receptive to personal needs when family issues arise.

    Cons

    Health benefits could be better for a company this size. No other cons.

    Pros

    -Have a large sales force, who for the most part are very knowledgable about healthcare. -HR department is very responsive -We get SAIC employee discounts- nice perk

    Cons

    -Management is (best case scenario) overwhelmed and unresponsive. -Personally i was literally at the end of my contract and found myself a job with a vitalize client, vitalize arrnaged only one interview during my last 6 weeks as my contract was ending, and I never heard back on it -Have made some effort to collect skillset information over the last few months, but still there are mass emails to the group asking for consultants familiar with content. Why do we update résumés? -Benefits could be better (somewhat convoluted process for healthcare claims), since being bought out by SAIC would have expected some improvement in this area over the last year but no changes -Culture has changed so much over the last year, it's not what it used to be. I no longer feel like anyone knows my name.
