    Pros

    They're doing well currently with new contract wins.

    Cons

    They care absolutely nothing about their emotes. No loyalty to employees. It's all about the money and what profits or benefit you offer the company.

    Advice to Management

    Change your culture to be more loyal to your employees. Sell to a larger company that has a better culture for employees.

    Pros

    VIP has developed into a creative and cutting edge consulting firm with a talented and determined delivery team. That combined with a seasoned sales team has allowed VIP to grow and prosper at a rapid rate over the past 24 months. VIP has a team environment where your teammates are driven to help you become successful.

    Cons

    In the past there has been a lot of management and directional change, which has slowed development. Those road blocks are now not prevalent at the firm.

    Advice to Management

    Continue present direction.

    Pros

    VIP has good benefits and employs top-notch employees whose main objective is to effectively collaborate with their clients to deliver the highest quality of services.

    Cons

    As with most technical jobs, balancing your home life and work (especially if you travel) can be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for advancement by allowing and/or grooming its consultants to migrate into other areas.

    Pros

    Very nice and helpful HR personnel.

    Cons

    Payroll is horrendous. Consistently late, claims of "check was lost in mail", sending you new check.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your personnel on time. Improve payroll department. Pay issues erode morale and trust.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with colleagues who understood the federal marketplace and made a difference in how we could deliver IT to the government.

    Cons

    Often felt like the company did not have the cohesion across divisions that could have helped deliver transformative results. Was VIP more product focused vs. services focused?

    Advice to Management

    Need to invest more in your people so that they feel valued. Perception is that people are disposable and easily replaced. Therefore, it results in lack of loyalty.

    Pros

    Will let you manage your own work and provide opportunities for advancement provided you work very hard and bring in new business.

    Cons

    Expect you to work on other activities such as business development, not a lot of training provided, and you don't get to interact with other employees very much. Bonuses are very difficult to get if you aren't supporting new business development.

    Advice to Management

    More opportunities for training of staff, clearly expectations for when bonuses are given, and additional opportunities for employees to get together.

    Pros

    Casual dress and nice office in Reston, VA.

    Cons

    The management team are awful, greedy, people. They are constantly make changes that have deteriorated morale, culminating in substantial layoffs in departments that consistently met their goals. Pay for certain positions is vastly below local and national averages. Hard work is not rewarded and employees are misled and lied to from day one.

    Advice to Management

    There is no point in offering any advice as nothing will change.

    Progressive, forward thinking, and empowering.

    Cons

    Working on a government contract is not always a great place.

    Advice to Management

    Work with the government to give contractors better job security, allow for some on boarding training related to the customer.

    Pros

    The line workers and line managers are great. The office has plenty of light. There are occasional potlucks and birthday celebrations. There are massage chairs.

    Cons

    No raises (not even COLA), no bonuses. I was doing proposal work, where there is traditionally a token bonus for a win - not at VIP. The company has NO loyalty toward its employees - I was laid off as soon as they hired someone with questionable skills, but who was younger, cheaper, and not disabled, despite my manager opposing the change. They instituted flex-PTO, where the days off are theoretically unlimited, but there is no accumulated PTO to be carried on the books. And theoretically unlimited PTO depends on getting permission to be out - permission that is frequently denied. Upper management is terrible and doesn't listen to middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to work-life balance as a positive, not a negative. Listen to line managers. Retire Jonna Ward to a purely advisory position. Stop assuming that the only worthy employees are ones half-dead with overwork.
