    I worked at Contemporary VA for less than a year

    Pros

    I actually thought this was a great company to work for at first.

    Cons

    Termination for no valid reason without even asking employee or investigating Team leaders lie to cover their own tracks Terminated in the middle of completing a project that I was told wasn't completed 3 days later Favoritism showed to certain individuals Even with me notifying team leader of my every move, I was told I wasn't available enough or notifying her of my availability. They dismissed the ones that... actually work and kept them notified of their every move but the ones that never speak up or say anything in team chat are still there. I'm seeking legal counsel regarding this matter and starting my own company

    Advice to Management

    Please get the details from both sides before just terminating people for no valid reason. It was already bad enough sitting around for hours waiting on work and then get terminated because of she-say in the middle of doing a task for no pay.

    I worked at Contemporary VA

    Pros

    Many people only write reviews about a company that are negative. CVA might have been a mess to work for a couple years ago but now they are great. They cleaned house and got all new upper management they are fantastic. I have see some mixed reviews on here, the interview process was easy for me. I got assigned to an team and begun work the next day on recurring tasks. I love being able to work from home. My hours... are flexible and I am always done by 5pm.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Contemporary VA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked at this company for almost 4 years and while the positives include the amount of skills and training I received, it does not make up for the cons associated with this position.

    Cons

    Even though you are hired as a 1099, you have set work hours, very little flexibility and a GM who tries to micromanage everything being done...including wanting access to your calendar with full details so she can track your day. Overloading VA's with too much work and then being upset when they aren't perfect.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at who you are and change.
