    I worked at VisionIT (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They are very efficient form beginning to end of the hiring process. They are also very good at keeping in contact with you during the contact period. Never had any issues with benefits or pay. Great company.

    Cons

    Not any cons that come to mind. Allowing for human error, they really do make the effort to be on top of everything.

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

    Pros

    VisionIT is a small family owned family company that specializes in minority set asides for staffing and the occasional custom IT project. The Brother and Sister team that owns and runs VisionIT have a good roster of contacts that they farm quite well within the Detroit area.

    Cons

    The company is rather dis-functional. It is hard to get anything done. Any decision of any significance whatsoever must be routed through a single person. While the company puts on the appearance of being a large multi-national consulting company, it’s really quite small, centered in Detroit with an auxiliary office in Mexico. This small company approach becomes very apparent when it comes to benefits and simple things, such as accruing vacation time (which many of my ex-coworkers have been cheated out of). The culture is also very strange. It is NOT the culture of a high-tech company; rather it is the culture of an HR department, with focuses on minutia and 80's style work rules. Rules that do nothing to advance our mission, but rather come across as rules with the only purpose of pleasing what an HR person would do. The company is also amazingly bureaucratic. It is HARD to get anything done. While we have a tagline of "Fast Simple Smart", I laugh inside each time I hear it. This company moves internally at a snail pace. We do hire allot of very smart people, but they do not stay. Which leads me to my last thought - the turn over. This company has the most turn over of any company I have EVER seen. Smart people join but then either leave quickly when they realize their hands or tied, or get fired because they weren't effective (probably because their hands were tied)

    Advice to Management

    Address the turnover problem. It's really quite ridiculous how many people come in, and leave quickly. Our customers DO notice this. Get this company moving faster. While it's nice that it is a motto, come on. I've never seen a company this slow moving internally. Finally - start treating our people right when they leave. Pay them their vacation time - regardless of what state they live in, pay them their severance if they are due it due to country rules. And pay it on time. This non-sense of dragging it out over months is immoral. If you want to pretend to be a big company, then act like it and pay people what they are owed - WHEN they are owed.

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

    Pros

    There was a great team of people and when I originally started, the leadership seemed to genuinely care about their people. They had a lot of business mostly on the VMS side due to the minority status of the company

    Cons

    Took on business that many times was unrealistic and not fillable. Recently, the leadership seemed more interested in their own interests rather than the interests of the people who were making them the money. It was sad to see this change

    Advice to Management

    Care about your people, they are the ones enabling you to live the lifestyle you are living but they need to make a living as well. Undercutting commissions does not drive motivation. Listen to the recruiters who are talking with candidates on a daily basis instead of discounting their thoughts and opinions. Recognize that this is a difficult job and appreciate your employees

    I worked at VisionIT (More than a year)

    Pros

    They offer Reasonable PTO, health care, you can wear jeans. You get to work in mid town. Flexible with your schedule.

    Cons

    They use a lot of smoke and mirrors when they provide their quarterly updates to the company. Certain members of their leadership team are always angry and you start to wonder why they are even working here. There is ALOT of turnover. I am not sure I would refer anyone to the VisionPro line of business. It just seems very dysfunctional.

    Advice to Management

    Look into replacing some of your leadership at the executive level. The reason two out of your three lines of business are failing could be because of members at the executive level. Check your exit reviews and see how many people leave because of them.

    I worked at VisionIT full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have some good clients and solid marketing. Very lean cost saving machine. Great for partners or anyone with a stake in the company.

    Cons

    I worked in good faith for this company a few heats back and they did not pay out my accrued vacation. Bottom line is that the partner has a background I'm emplymemr law and they found a way to legally rip me off of a full 2 weeks of pay I believed I would be compensated for but was not.

    Based on another recent review it appears that this practice is still implemented. Buyer beware.

    Advice to Management

    None. They do not listen or care because this is not a commonly accepted practice and yet still occurs. This proves to me that they are greedy and self serving. Employee handbooks are employment contracts. Read the payout policy upon leaving in good faith.

    Pros

    A great company and culture backed up by an involved, caring CEO who invests in innovation, his employees, and the community. He has reorganized the company to be brand specific and has hired an "A" team of executives to run and lead those brands. I truly believe this company is going to do nothing but grow and prosper.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be involved, invest highly in innovation and your employees.

    Pros

    Great Family Life balance, Supportive Management, Cheerful Employees, State of the Art offices, updated technology, innovative ideas are welcome, hard workers are rewarded, Executive Leadership has open door policy, a place that you will never hate coming to work!

    Cons

    Some employees will always think the grass is greener on the other side, this mindset gives the illusion of bad moral. When in fact every company has employees who are not happy. Management listens to everyone’s complaints and does what they can. This is a company that is constantly changing for the better and making improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the improvements and listening to your employees. We appreciate the support and are excited about the future !

    Pros

    The company that contracted with VisionIT recommended me for the position. So VisionIT was pretty hands off on my day to day support for said company. I enjoyed the freedom.

    Cons

    When the contract ended, VisionIT did little to nothing to find me another position.
