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

    Pros

    Great mid-level management and benefits package. Opportunity to learn and grown if you are willing to take on new responsibilities.

    Cons

    Gaining or losing government contracts effects overall job security. I left because I was always worried about my job, but LOVED it there during the time I was there.

    I have been working at VSE full-time

    Pros

    Flexible and accommodating to a degree. Some employees are easy to work with. Consistent hours of operation.

    Cons

    Leadership. Compensation & Benefits are subpar at best. Undervalued. Priority is set by multiple individuals instead of managers or supervisor. No career progression. Hard work, dedication and loyalty does not pay off. Organizational planning needs work. Communication. Double Standards.

    Advice to Management

    Extend advancement opportunities to personnel who continue to go above and beyond for the benefit of the company. Results driven pay should be common practice. Avoid making your employees feel like another number, like they are not valued. The current practices in the workplace will make it difficult to retain quality employees.

    Pros

    I love the work experience I have had with VSE. Mr. Garland shows concern for all his workers, willing to listen and help out where he can. Also Jill has always been ready and willing to help with any situation that falls under her. It's my pleasure to give VSE 100% each day I am at work. Thanks VSE for the opportunity and work experience you have given me.

    Cons

    Each job I have performed has been very knowledgeable to me in the logistics field

    upper management and top floor personnel do not value employees - sees them as expendable assets. very 'click-ish' upper management group. Do not live up the Integrity standards they advertise.

    Pros

    None that I can think of. The company is a hodgepodge of a bunch of acquisitions that have never been fully integrated.

    Cons

    Nasty people at Senior Management level. Stuck in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that the lower level people are what make this company stay alive.
