    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Great working environment, flexible schedule (based on project/client working hours) that allowed me to mitigate the horrible metro DC traffic, training incentives, excellent benefits, salary was generous and appropriate for the area, the summer and winter events were fully paid by the company (I have seen otherwise in other companies), level of corporate communications to employees was excellent as it is easy for employees on projects to feel disassociated with their company, and of course people the are wonderful!!

    Cons

    VariQ has grown substantially in the last 2 years and has experienced some growing pains as a result however these pains have been mitigated by adding new personnel and services that smaller companies may not need, however larger ones do (increased BD and staffing personnel, communications personnel, etc). The steps that VariQ management has put in place has turned these cons into pros.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support the personnel in the field as you did with me and VariQ, especially when they roll off of projects, as this is a differentiator between a company that sees people as people and not people as dollar signs. Because I had time after my project ended I was able to add new skills, help with corporate projects and try and find a new position internally first and then externally. Due to all of this I am able to move into a new position without an interruption in employment.
