      Pros

      Employee Benefits. Excellent benefits make up for the average salaries. There are enough job opportunities for the average person to find a comfortable job with the right hours to fit their lifestyle.

      Cons

      Politics. Promotions are often based on who you know and upper management does not see the unraveling going on in the departments. Middle management is forced to participate in projects that take them away from their jobs. There is only so much time in a day so something's got to give. There are too many band-aid fixes because they don't have the time to devote to cleaning up day to day issues in the departments.

      Pros

      Decent pay, good benefits (see below) , friendly co-workers that made you feel like you where part of the team, good vacation plans, company picnics and holidays

      Cons

      New management out of touch with day to day IT work management that has never worked a IT job has unrealistic expectations of employees, "do more with less" is the montra at VSP so much that they downsize depts and explect the remaing few employees to do the work that used to be done by a team double sometimes triple the size. Upper management outsourcing key job functions to foreign countries ( entire helpdesk and desktop support teams) has had a huge impact on IT depts ability to meet high standards set by upper management added costs for benefits keep rising but pay increases do not match, over the course of 4 years I was making less than when I started due to increases in benefits cost

      Pros

      Relaxed workplace. At times can be a lot of fun. Great benefits. Lots of free classes on improving your skill set. Good work-life balance.

      Cons

      VSP is not known for paying their employees fair market value. There are a lot of huge egos in upper management. The company is so big that there is a lot of redundant work going because communication is poor between different lines of business. You can say that about most large corporate environments though.

      Pros

      Health/ Vision coverage better then I have ever had with another company. Many company sponsored events really care for employees and their families. Makes the employee want to grow and stay with the company.

      Cons

      Upper management seems to have no clue. Outdated systems and Human Resources seems to be involved in every aspect of the job.

      Pros

      You will receive a paycheck every two weeks. Lots of parking You get a desk to sit at and do your work. They have a "cake day" every month

      Cons

      You will be overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated. Management lacks every single bit of integrity to do the right things for almost every situation and part of the company, they mislead you, lie, and treat you poorly. On any given day one can hear conniving, colluding, and gossiping from all nearby open manager offices. Self-serving children occupy the upper management of this company. If it wasn't so hard to look for another job I would. Save yourself a lot of pain, stress, and anxiety, they don't deserve you.
