I have been working at VHB full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Tons of amazing and smart senior people to learn and grow from.

Cons

There is a regimented ceiling so you feel like you are trying to fight to perform more than your peers.

Advice to Management

Consider your junior staff to be the future of the company and be clear to the ones you really have goals for.

    Pros

    Some manager and new younger staff are really great to work with and have excellent contacts and experience to tap into.

    Cons

    Salaries at VHB are lower than similar companies with similar benefits.

    Advice to Management

    More salary increases, and management needs to be less hungry to acquire new companies. More focus should be given to the existing offices and employees.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and fair compensation along with interesting projects and casual work environment. Good community involvement for charities. Many competent workers.

    Cons

    Sneaky upper management tactics; Sweatshop mentality by hiring young, recent grads and pushing them to work uncompensated to keep projects on budget; Older, senior and more expensive workers pushed out the door for young, cheap talent; Active age discrimination seems to be their dirty little secret; Location in Watertown is awful; Management will do anything to stay profitable at the expense of their workers. Program for promotion to associate creates bitter divide between stock owners and workers.

    Advice to Management

    The same top-tier, inner circle people get all the recognition for successes, when in fact there are vital team players at mid- and lower-levels who are constantly overlooked and under-valued.
