    I have been working at VMD Systems Integrators full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility, benefits, people, etc.

    I have never worked for a better company with more positive attributes.

    Cons

    Cubical configurations can make phone calls/teleconferences challenging when others have loud conversations.

    Advice to Management

    Additional mentoring and cross-training would benefit the organization, as well as the employees.

    I have been working at VMD Systems Integrators full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Joined the company just over 2 months ago and the biggest surprise has been the people. While everyone is hard-working and dedicated, they truly understand and encourage a strong work life balance. Everyone wants to help each other and people volunteer and are encouraged to freely express their ideas.
    VMD is pressing hard for growth but not at the expense of the employees. The Executive Leadership and Directors work well together to advance VMD's growth goals.

    Cons

    As is the case with many services-based government contractors, the workforce is decentralized across various regions and states. It can be tough to feel part of a single company at times since most work is done in support of a customer. Oftentimes the culture is taken from that of the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities to feel part of a truly unique VMD culture that bucks the trend of a decentralized workforce. Invest in collaboration tools, marketing, and events to create a truly unique VMD culture in all regions and states.

    Continue to be judicious and pragmatic regarding decisions on proposals. Continue growth focus to give more opportunities to existing employees and to hire new people into VMD.

    I have been working at VMD Systems Integrators full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working at VMD for a couple of years. Some of the pros are: Smart coworkers, frequent communications, telecommuting, and they treat employees fairly

    Cons

    There aren't any significant cons in my opinion. They are a growing company and have some bumps at times. The location for me is a little far, but I'm allowed to telecommute to offset it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the frequent communications with employees!

    I worked at VMD Systems Integrators full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was a job and let me pay the bills. Work was light at times, frustrating at others. Good group of coworkers, occasional free food.

    Cons

    Worked with a rotating group of people. When one left, a newer less qualified person took their place. Management refused to meet with the team, the developers went directionless.

    Advice to Management

    Hire quality people, lead and give direction. CEO / upper management only seemed to care about turning profit on positions rather that deliver quality product.

    Its a government contract company.

    Pros

    Good company if you are looking to get into government contracting right out of college. Wages are competitive and you will get the experience you need to move to another company.

    Cons

    Poor communication from HQ management. The company will wait until the last legal minute to tell you that the contract is ending and you will no longer have a job.

    Annual evaluations take a long time and raises are not merit-based. There is no incentive to go above and beyond. You may get a below-average raise depending on your contract, even if you received an above average evaluation.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employees who are out there making you money. Give employees merit-based salary increases or you are going to lose your best workers.

    Pros

    Fast-paced, flexible culture with excellent benefits (i.e. 401k, medical, dental ,vision....life insurance and tuition assistance). Excellent employee recognition programs. Good management and employee cohesion.

    Cons

    Like most growing defense contract firms in the current economy.....job security is a chief concern!!

    Advice to Management

    Invest in more training and professional development programs for existing employees to ensure that they remain current and competitive with the market trends.

    Pros

    good benefits, great co-workers, rotating days off.

    Cons

    If you ask for PTO, 99% of the time it will get declined, no room for advancement, Pay is terrible for the hours we work. Having to pay for parking to go to work is ridiculous.
