    I worked at VMC Consulting full-time

    Pros

    VMC is an always evolving company so if you enjoy new challenges, variety and the ability to have input on positive changes, then VMC is for you.
    The recent executive management team that has been in place for just under a year, brings a lot of new fresh ideas and strategic direction. Joe Lyons, VP of sales, is very thoughtful and strategic and is the first manager in years that I was comfortable introducing to people and having solid conversations with.

    Cons

    Consistency - this flows through the whole organization and can create frustration and if it can be ironed out so that everyone is speaking the same language on services, processes and direction it would go along way towards being more successful.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the direction and strategy is constantly messaged throughout the org and that execution of it is always top of mind, this will so allow all employees to buy in 100% and move the company forward.

    Pros

    NONE! there are no pros !

    Cons

    There are no benefits in the fargo office. SharePoint is who you will be working for. The managers on that team are two faced. The training is a joke, you arent showed how to fix or troubleshoot anything. The only thing you are trained on is policy and procedures. Ive been in the IT field my entire working career. I am now jobless after several months because of this place.

    The managers might be nice to you at first, but after a couple months they treat you differently. Good luck with getting help from anyone, you wont get it. theres only a couple people you can actually get help from and they are to busy helping a manager or doing some other team lead task.

    you will also be written up if your customer becomes upset, or your email isnt formatted in a special way, or if they dont like the format.

    you practically get written up for everything you do. you cant even take days off because the management team doesnt let you take days off. i worked there for almost a year and i only got 2 days off that i asked for. i worked every single holiday and it was horrible.

    the overnight shift is the worst. there are only about 3 or 4 people the entire night and you will be overloaded with 20+ cases.

    the before i got fired, i got my last written warning and management told me that they were going to give me a "clean slate". the very next day i was called to the office and they fired me.

    i repeat, do not take employment here!!! If you are looking for a new job and still have your current job, i promise its not as bad as this place is !!

    I left my previous job because of all the "good news" i heard from the management in my interview. now i cant go back to my old job because they needed me to start immediately.

    well they reason they need you to start immediately is because they are constantly firing people.

    That doesnt even cover how bad the customers are. if you are not a programmer, you are in for a world of hurt. you will end up talking to software developers and you wont have a clue what to talk to them about. they treat you like garbage as well, most of the customers do.

    oh and dont even think that when your shift ends that it means you get to go home. if you have 20 cases in your list and its time to go home, guess what LOL !! you have to stay and finish hitting all of your cases.

    Heres the kicker, if you accrue overtime with a high caseload, management starts to yell at you for having overtime. i got yelled at because i had overtime and i was threatened to be wrote up if i continued to have overtime.

    theres a team lead there that has shortman syndrome, he will belittle you and treat you worse than scum and give you a verbal whipping in the back.

    also you cant even trust your own co-workers. I had co-workers point out things they didnt agree with in my emails, such as the way it was formatted. it lead to written warnings.

    Advice to Management

    fire the management. get management that actually cares about its employees.

    I worked at VMC Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility, Variety of Work, and Location

    Cons

    Constant Leadership Turnover, Compensation, and Benefits

    Advice to Management

    Separate yourself from Volt Information Sciences to help with your image and allow more adjustable margins. Pay attention to customer relationships. Pay attention to benefits for employees as there is not a one size fits all, there should be something offered for testers or lower level hourly employees and something for professional level employees.

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

    Pros

    We've got a strong leadership team in place who are all committed to grow VMC. New ideas, new connections, new way of thinking. They are agile, they try new processes and quickly adjust if they are not working. They are supportive and respectful of all levels of employees. This is all very refreshing for VMC.

    Cons

    Would be nice to have more community involvement, stronger pay and benefits. This is on their agenda and shared often. We just need to get to a better place financially.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Stay transparent. You have a great group of employees behind you and those who are unwilling to change from past ways will slowly work their way out of VMC and go elsewhere. We appreciate all of you.
