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

Pros

Consulting arm of one of the largest staffing companies. They have a huge presence in Microsoft.

Cons

If you are placed at a client location, you may not not get to know VMC at all. Compensation seems to be a little below par but on the other chances of getting a project are higher

    Pros

    Large consulting firm means that they manage many varied contracts (especially ones at Microsoft)
    For the most part, if you want nothing to do with VMC and want to go by your day to day work, you are able to (almost 0 mandatory meetings with reps if your customer is happy, few reasons to ever visit the VMC office besides hardware or HR issues)

    Cons

    The cut they take out of your contract is much higher than Seimens, Insight Global, or Murphy and Associates (from personal experience)
    Business information and contract specifics are almost never exposed (you never know what your contract is actually worth)
    Harsh practices on employees that share compensation information with each other, especially on the same team or org
    Terrible web portals that must be used for payroll information, direct deposit, weekly timecards (slow to load, often error, work only in outdated versions of IE, etc)

    Advice to Management

    Try to let your employees know their place. That you see them as valued members of a family and are more open about budgets, contracts, promotions, or that you really feel they are simply cogs in a larger machine and can easily be dropped.
