      Pros

      Vaco hires the kind of people you want to be best friends with which gives the whole office a best-friend-type atmosphere. People are kind and understanding, always willing to help out where help is needed. Everyone works hard and is competitive at what they do, but at the same time, management still allows for a vibrant work/life balance and flexibility to work how you prefer.

      Cons

      Can't think of any cons.

      I have been working at Vaco full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Beautiful atmosphere and office space. Uncapped earning potential. Great people who know how to have a great time even when the job may get hard. Catered breakfasts every Wednesday morning for weekly board meetings.

      Cons

      Working with people in one of their most stressful life times (job changes) can make for some hard days, but being surrounded by so many awesome people makes even those hard days bearable.

      Advice to Management

      Be a little more transparent. It's best to just address any changes verses letting the teams "hear" about it through other avenues.
