    Pros

    Brilliant people, incredible culture! A commitment to their employees and the overall satisfaction of clients. Cutting edge technology at velocity.

    Cons

    None at all! They have a top to bottom comprehensive commitment to their people above all else. They provide tools needed to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at VVF full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Has a Roth choice in their 401K.

    Cons

    Nothing ever gets better. Same mistakes by upper management. Quality of new hires is getting bad. Always running out of materials. Way to much overtime. Upper management thinks we have no life, but they are never there on the weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Bring up the pay and get better employee's. Start a training program. Stop the micro management.

    Left P&G to work at VVF and very happy with the decision....limitless opportunity for my future! My skills and experience have been appreciated and utilized by management.

    Smoke area is far to walk and the break room could use an update.

    Pros

    Management listens openly to suggestions for improvements and are open to change. Great benefits and vacation time.

    Cons

    It's a manufacturing company, so holidays are fewer.

    Pros

    401K match by company, excellent benefit package, small company so you have an ability to make an impact on improvements.

    Cons

    Strict attendance policies, so don't apply if you have attendance issues. They expect you to show up to work on time and everyday. Not a bad thing, but seems like many people these days have trouble doing this.

    Pros

    Full hour for lunch.

    Grow up or get out.

    I have been working at VVF full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    None. They use to pay well but now they hire in at lower wages. The insurance cost rises with every contract.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime. If your lowest senior, you work 4 hours over EVERY DAY and are forced to come in 4 hours before your shift. That leaves 8 hours between for your family and sleep!
    Management treats you like your a puppet.
    "Do what I say or get written up". ( 3 write ups in 1 year and your fired.)
    They resently took all chairs off the production floor and said they would get better production out of us. So now you work 12 hour shifts (back to back) and have to stand on a solid concrete floor. Breaks are 10 minutes each and 20 minutes for lunch. Don't be 1 minute late or you'll get a letter. (Remember you get 3 a year, your fired!)
    Don't forget to punch in or you'll get a letter.
    We are a union shop, they write up grievances and it is "respectfully denied "
    THIS IS A SWEATSHOP TO WORK FOR.
    New hires are not staying and new ones are getting written up so fast they are gone before they have time to figure out all the rules.

    Advice to Management

    Need new management from top to bottom.
    They are the "experts " who turned this place into the mess it is.
