I worked at Velocity Technology Solutions full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Tom Bruno, the CEO, is approachable. I highly recommend having an idea before you make the decision to tell him what you think. If he's in the office, I also recommend having an idea, since he will approach you, too.

Great place for ex -military or anyone currently in the reserves, since the people at the top truly respect that, the CEO included.

Personal growth is what you make of it and how much you're willing to fight for it.

Tons of opportunity with their continued expansion -- they own one of the largest data centers (with a great history) in Minneapolis.

Many have figured out their responsibilities and created a nice niche for themselves.

Cons

Don't sign up if you need personal attention and guidance.

Understand that you're ultimately working for investors, and that the bottom line is what matters.

Expect to work weekends if anything you put in motion goes awry.

Advice to Management

Nothing I can tell you that you don't already know. You all have your plan in place.

    I have been working at Velocity Technology Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good if you want to build your cloud profile.

    Cons

    If you are young and single and have no life outside of work, this could be a nice place to build your resume. If you are experienced and have a family, this is the last place you want to be. There are some areas that are not on call and can't imagine what it's like to be expected to be on call all the time. Velocity has a bad turnover rate and people are fired or quit all the time. Velocity tries to seel it as "growing pains" but it's more like poor leadership at all levels. Plenty of companies grow and don't have half the turnover. The culture is toxic and the reason people work so much is because of the huge turnover.

    Advice to Management

    What advice can you give to people who don't listen. A company being sole does not mean it's heading in the right direction.
