No opinion of CEO

I have been working at VOA Associates full-time (More than a year)

Pros

It is good to work with very kind, instructive staff (low to mid level)

It is good to see the firm exploring more and more project opportunities overseas (mainly on China and South America Region).

Nice working environment and fantastic views to the lake

Cons

Have little transparency toward manager level. (basically politic issue)
Minimum salary rises recently. (yeah I know it has being bad recession but the pay could just be a little bit better)

Advice to Management

talk more to the mid-level guys
open-mind to constructive solutions
be careful with hiring, in order to avoid high credit takers..

    I worked at VOA Associates full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people you work with on a daily basis are very talented and are willing to work hard to get the job done.

    Cons

    Middle/upper management has difficulties. Central office policies conflict with outlying offices.

    Advice to Management

    Examine people in mid/upper management positions-find the ones that don't know what they are doing, get rid of them.

    Pros

    Good starting place for a career out of school

    Cons

    No defined growth paths for anyone. Evident nepotism, as Partners hire their own unqualified family members for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Loosing great talent is not the best way to foster a competitive firm.
