    I have been working at Veterans Evaluation Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work is rewarding.

    Dedicated co workers a lot of whom are Veterans or closely related to the
    military community.

    Caring people with a tremendous emphasis on quality and a perfectionist's approach.

    Relaxed environment and dress can be casual.
    Pay is competitive.

    Hours and PTO can be flexible.

    Medical and Dental Insurance plan is good.

    Solid HR Department.

    Upper management is easily approached and supportive of employees.

    Cons

    Company loyalty can be promoted over skill. Qualified candidates are chosen but favoritism exists as with any work environment.

    A higher emphasis on cross training and learning new skills.

    Because of the casual work environment some employees get comfortable too quickly.

    Could benefit from some additional managerial training.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to your employees and embracing innovation. You have a dedicated staff but at times they can feel underutilized by middle management.

    Ensure the high quality of work is continuing to be produced and VES will continue to thrive.

    I worked at Veterans Evaluation Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Bonuses are offered, but only when business is booming. Base pay isn’t terrible. Loved the building and the views. Worked with the lights off and had an amazing break room with free soda machines.

    Cons

    They fire a lot. I watched 10 people drop in 2 weeks. They would get up from their desk and get in the elevator. Then, someone else came off the elevator with a box and packed their stuff. When business is slow, they cross train you to work in other departments. Probably because they fired everyone.

    I worked at Veterans Evaluation Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is slightly higher than usual for the job.

    Very relaxed environment when it comes to dress and grooming.

    Cons

    Unsteady work

    Management is craven, uninspired, and woefully unjust (unless you know them, or have sex appeal)

    Shady business practices including withholding crucial information (including business closing) and attempting to reverse paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Understanding that every person is viable to the success of a department and business is mandatory.

    Learning the crudest strategy for of communication would help your company.

    Stop being clandestine and be open about your dealings and executions.

    Vindictive behavior is not becoming of a corporation.

    I worked at Veterans Evaluation Services full-time

    Amazing pay with little to no experience. Very relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    they will fire you for ANYTHING with or with out reason and will not give you warning at all. Terminated without reason.

    I worked at Veterans Evaluation Services full-time

    Pros

    Great people and health benefits

    Cons

    Managers play favorites and the company policy is that they can fire you with no reason given. Even if you've never received disciplinary action in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees about the state of the company. You're putting their livelihoods at state just to save face. No one is dumb. The company is obviously not doing as well as you say if you are letting this many people go without giving them reason.

    Pros

    the pay was good and they really don't care what you wear.

    Cons

    not sure if you job is secure unless you meet the quota.

    Pros

    The opportunity for over time was there for any one to take it.

    Cons

    Even though over time was "optional", it made you feel as if it HAD to be done in order to keep up or maintain your quota. Some days you could have up to 10 new reports and none of them were sendable yet you had to somehow maintain the pace of your quota.

    I worked at Veterans Evaluation Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Casual environment, flexible hours and always an opportunity for overtime and bonuses.

    Cons

    I was hired as a Quality Analyst and quickly realized this position was not a fit for me. I addressed my concerns to the appropriate people and was told this is common and they would help me transfer into another role that would fit my skill set. They lied. They let me go at the end of training without an explanation on why I suddenly couldn't transfer departments. They were actually dramatic and unprofessional about it. I wasn't surprised considering how unprofessional the company is as a whole. A lot of profanity in the emails including the CEO and public shaming of those who don't hit their goals. The things I read in other reviews were true, job security doesn't exist here. Unless you're desperate look somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Hire leaders not dictators.

    Pros

    Being part of providing this critical service to veterans was very meaningful.

    Cons

    Pay is on the lower side of things, but that should kind of be expected in a social service business.

    Pros

    Helping veterans and casual atmosphere

    Cons

    Too many people want to tell others what to do. They will fire you with no warning and will not give you a reason as to why. There is no normal disciplinary policy as most companies follow that has a step process that leads to termination. Instead they just call you up and fire you and have their guy who they call the box man box your stuff up and he walks in with a smile and says have a nice day. But if you are on their good sides meanin a yes boss and oh that was so funny type of person than you can have all the time off you want, work from home, leave early, or whatever. Just be prepared for that day when it comes if you take employment with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all the Indians and focus on better chiefs. Case in point with the millions of emails that are sent out over one simple subject because everyone wants to get involve and flex their muscles to feel important.
