    Pros

    VMC is company that has tremendous potential. If a person wants to learn and contribute this may be the right fit for them.

    If your the kind of person that is waiting for something to happen rather than make something happen, look for a different company.

    I worked at VMC Consulting full-time

    Pros

    They have repetitive contracts and a long standing relationship with Microsoft for myriad projects and groups. If you are an A-grade talent not getting the opportunity to show your stuff at MSFT, this may be a useful way in

    Cons

    Too many to list. They pay far below industry standard and bid for functionary jobs that are blown up inasfar as responsibilities go. VMC hires you through Volt and promises conversion to full time VMC (meaning, you'd get benefits) within six months and almost all jobs are advertised as C2H which are all lies. When pressed about conversion or actual chances of being converted, your VMC management gets short with you and tells you not to discuss it any more. Most insultingly, it is corporate policy to never disclose your Bill Rate to you, as an employee. The most telling sign that you are working for a bush-league firm is refusal to be transparent about the profits you are generating for the company. No respectable Consulting firm witholds their CFW's bill rate as it becomes a significant portion of their Annual Review, STI and LTIs.

    Advice to Management

    Your attrition problem stems from systemic hiring practices. Stop underbidding and going for C or D grade positions. Start offering real health care and other benefits. Be fully transparent with candidates about Bill and Take Home rates and fire any PM or Recruiter that states positions are C2H when there is no chance they are.

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

    Pros

    Lots of free parking and coffee. Some good worker bees who care about their work product and are fun to work with.

    Cons

    Management is so poor that it's pointless to try hard. No reason to want to move up or take on more work.

    I have been working at VMC Consulting full-time

    Pros

    great experience that can leader to advancement opportunities at other companies

    Cons

    No room for advancement at the company itself. Lack of communication from management and a naturally stressful work environment makes it someplace you don't want to be long-term.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the communication
