    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.

    Pros

    Very friendly environment to work and good team members. Helpful leadership.

    Cons

    The company is not really doing well at the management level. Testers are treated like consumable goods and management doesn't really care about them. Little opportunity to develop your career.

    Advice to Management

    I hope there are more team building events and interaction with management level. It is not good that almost no one knows the name of their manager.

    I think VMC finally brought on board the right management for the job at hand. Processes are getting streamlined allowing us to better to our jobs, etc. Bar has also been substantially raised.

    Cons

    Benefits could still use improvement.

    Keep doing what you're doing!
