    Pros

    Great Technical learning experience, very complex product - terrific place to learn. Technical team is great and very helpful and generally friendly. Will learn a lot about delivering an enterprise level product. The technological stack is getting a bit dated though. So if you are on H1B and want to hang on to a company that will survive for the next few - you have arrived at the right place. If you are GC/citizen then make sure you get good money as you will be working long hours - i mean really long.

    Cons

    Top Mangement no longer believes in the technical strength of their product. No effort to keep the product current ( not talking cutting edge but barely current). More emphasis on selling the product to new customers. They have also discovered outsourcing to india so probably so there hangs a question mark for those joining US team but great for India team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since you happen to be in Benefits industry please consider proving excellent benefits to employees.

    Pros

    If you like never to be bored and have lots of things on your "to do" list, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Can be very, very frustrating work environment trying to get the resources you need. Depending on the project and manger, too much micro-management (that seems to be how to be successful). Expect to be available 24 x 7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Any way to makes processes more consistent? They change every couple of weeks.

    Pros

    - Nice start-up mentality for a mid-sized company that's been around for about 20 years.
    - Managers are extremely busy but most of them put in the effort to make sure their employees and their interests are taken care of.
    - Great work/life balance.
    - There is always work to be done where you can showcase your knowledge, expertise and hard work to your team(s) and client(s).
    - Vitech is the leader in a very stable niche market.

    Cons

    - Not many networking/social events within the company to build a sense of corporate community.
    - Employee training could be a more formalized process.
    - No 401K match from the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is doing a better job at keeping its employees up-to-date with the strategy and business development of Vitech -- this transparency is great and I'd recommend that management continues to do this. Try to host/plan more team events to keep employees happy.

    A Mid-Sized Software Firm Unwilling to Invest in Its Employees

    Former Employee - Senior Technical Manager in Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Senior Technical Manager in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Vitech Systems Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    (1) Many of your colleagues are smart, hardworking, and dedicated individuals.
    (2) The core technologies are Oracle (PL/SQL), Java, Hibernate, Spring, Tapestry, etc. So, if you love web applications on this technology stack, you'd like it, at least from the technical perspective.
    (3) Depending on your position and geographic region, this company's compensation is mostly reasonably competitive.

    Cons

    (1) This company does not value employees and their loyalty. When people left after more than a decade of service, its management did not even bother to send an email.
    (2) A few years ago, this company stopped its 401(k) match program.
    (3) When they quietly let go people, in a few cases, the management made the process unnecessarily unpleasant for the individual(s).
    (4) Resource management/sharing amongst different teams has always been a challenge. Different groups/projects withheld information from each other, and middle management spent lots of time and energy fighting for resources.
    (5) Project management is not one of this company's fortes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    (1) Value people, not just the bottom line.
    (2) Establish a formal board of directors.
    (3) Reinstate the 401(k) match program.

    I have been working at Vitech Systems Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Consistent hours and stable work when on a project
    - Opportunity to learn the SDLC/Implementation Life-cycle
    - Decent base salary (but terrible raises and laughable bonuses)

    Cons

    The positive reviews on here are clearly written by the HR department and it would a disservice not to warn potential employees about this place. It's easy to identify the legitimate reviews.

    Carefully read through the other reviews here, the negative ones are accurate. Senior management was all promoted internally. This is sometimes a good thing, but seeing as these people had no management experience and received no training (no MBA's here), they are essentially all just "yes" men to the CEO/Founder.
    People have left this company in flocks over the past few years, including those who helped build it. The people who remain are there either because they need a work visa or are new hires, just out of school.

    This is a guarantee: You will only get a decent raise/bonus if you threaten to leave. Don't forget the terrible benefits: no 401k match, etc

    Also, when you are prepared to leave Vitech, rest assured, the HR department will find your resume, alert the management, and you're in for a LONG discussion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Anyone who worked here knows Senior Management doesn't listen to the employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start holding employees responsible for laziness and incompetence. A chain is only as strong as it's weakest link.
