    I have been working at Veris Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Collegial work environment with opportunities to learn from highly experienced staff and take on real responsibility from day one
    - Interesting projects with a wide variety of clients
    - Respect for work/life balance in the form of flexible schedules and generous vacation time
    - Highly competitive pay and strong benefits package
    - Great coworkers and plenty of opportunities for off-hours interaction (fantasy sports, happy hours, sports leagues, holiday events, etc.)

    Cons

    - Reston, VA office location can be inconvenient for staff members living in DC or Arlington, although new options like the Metro shuttle have helped
    - The majority of the work is Excel-based. It would be valuable to gain knowledge and skills in other statistical software programs as well

    Pros

    -A lot of variety in the cases and work you do week to week
    -Supervisors are very flexible with scheduling and you are given a generous amount of vacation
    -You have an office from Day 1
    -The company is as advertised, no surprises from what you expected when interviewing to when you start working
    -Veris goes to great lengths to have social activities to interact with co-workers from all practices outside of the work day
    -Great work/life balance when compared to other companies in the accounting industry

    Cons

    -You work almost exclusively from the Reston office when you begin at the entry level so networking opportunities are not as frequent as they would be at a typical accounting firm
    -Deadlines/longer work weeks (while rare) may come up without much advanced notice

    The firm does meaningful exciting work in an environment that is both collaborative and productive. Veris Consulting is a community of great professionals that are great people as well.

    With multiple successful lines of business there are questions as to where the firm will go, and which of line of business will be the focus.

    I have been working at Veris Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Unparalleled work-life balance
    -GREAT people
    -Solid Compensation
    -Management very respectful and genuinely interested in helping you grow as a professional
    -Benefits are comprehensive and personal leave is ample
    -Granted a lot of personal autonomy at entry level, play important role in projects, no cubicles, everyone has personal office
    -Tuition Reimbursement
    -Not overburdened with travel but do have opportunities for cool trips (Las Vegas for CES Show, other colleagues have had trips in Europe and Japan)

    In summary Veris is a great place to begin your career. You will be valued and respected by management and have considerable authority and ownership for the projects you work on. The people here are truly wonderful.

    Cons

    - Would be nice to have opportunities to work with more predictive analytics vs descriptive statistcs. The nature of projects is concentrated on the latter
    -Would be nice to gain experience working with statistical software e.g. SAS, R, or STATA. Mainly work with excel.

    Pros

    I have been working at Veris Consulting (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Unique firm culture, talented staff, challenging work, strong college recruiting programs and other career opportunities, firm retreat and other benefits are really fantastic.

    Cons

    Opportunities are, for most part, based solely in the Washington/Northern Virginia area. Consulting schedules are better than those public accounting but still can be unpredictable in nature.

    I have been working at Veris Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, great team of very smart individuals who have started to and have built their professional careers, challenging, dynamic work. Collegial atmosphere, especially if you enjoy sports: both fantasy and co-ed work leagues. Very friendly and professional atmosphere.

    Cons

    There are succession planning issues and the HR function changed completely over the last year. Trend of "breaking into market" issues and closures of offices. I'm really not sure what's going to happen to Veris.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct 360-degree feedbacks going forward. Reduce employee turnover.

    I worked at Veris Consulting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Veris has a close-knit, family atmosphere that can make it a very enjoyable place to work. There are some very knowledgeable experts at the firm with impeccable reputations. There is an entrepreneurial spirit at the firm that makes it much less rigid than larger consultancies, while still getting to experience a similar caliber of work.

    Cons

    The casual environment can lead to a lack of professionalism. There are succession planning issues. Many at the firm could be great mentors but there isn't much interest in actively developing talent (although the responsibility assigned does help)

    Advice to Management

    Think about the future.
