    Pros

    Great Software, and well known in the filled.

    Cons

    Project managers were no good quality, did not fit the quality of the product and made it seem like you were working for a D company instead of an A company.
    Little to no training, and what there was, was not good quality. Example: 1 week building class gave a manual with steps that were missing important steps to build, therefore practicing for the Pass/ Fail test was impossible. They should have had a better learning manual, and better online support. After all its ultimately a software company.
    Also some of the filed trainers were very shadey. Got hired with dubious credits. One was actually a hostess at a restaurant before hired to work in a healthcare setting, another had no actual healthcare background at all, and would find places to sleep on the job.

    Advice to Management

    Only hire professionals that have some sore of degree in healthcare if you are going to place trainers in healthcare settings, nurses, nurse practitioners, doctors, PA etc.
    Have accurate training manuals, have a education/ practice portals

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

    Pros

    Overall, my experience with Vitalize has been a great one. I have the opportunity to work for a high-profile client in one of the greatest cities in the world. I'm more than happy with my compensation and think (for their size)Vitalize does a great job. They don't hassle you or micro-manage and have been responsive when I've had a question. I had a choice when it came to clients to interview with, I can live where I want and fly around the country on the weekends, I can take time off as needed and have more control over the type of work I'm doing. They've eased any concerns I had about leaving a salaried position for an hourly one, and I'm 100% happy with my decision.

    Cons

    Large company so it's hard to have that "personal connection" that is felt with smaller firms
    No bonus for hourly employees
    401K match is not great
    Travel to client site Sunday evening and home on Thursday

    Advice to Management

    I think there should be more help to hourly employees upon starting to navigate benefits and other territories that are probably relatively new (if coming off of a salaried position). This could be accomplished by having a HR resource assigned to new employees and reaching out to see about setting up a phone call to answer any questions that have come-up throughout the process. A more tailored orientation would also be good.

    Pros

    if you prefer a "small company" atmosphere this is the place to be, it seems everything the leadership does strives to maintain that. Most of the managers are more than competent and reasonable and flexible. Managers/Leadership welcome feedback

    Cons

    most managers are work-a-holics and though they try to maintain the attitude of having a work/life balance there is some unspoken expectations of work over most other things.

    Advice to Management

    be more open to enabling employees to work flexible hours (ie: 4 day work weeks, 7am-3pm days) right now an employee could do that if they really wanted to but they would get flack.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Vitalize Consulting Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Talented Senior consultants; reasonable rates; profitable; empowered management to make decisions; no micro-management except by one Senior VP who was partial to certain people and unfair to others

    Cons

    It no longer exists since it was purchased by SAIC. They destroyed the culture and eliminated the people

    Advice to Management

    None since they no longer run the company

    Pros

    Competitive compensation, signing bonus and okay benefits. The recruiting process was easy, they did not request an in person interview.

    Cons

    Limited communication from managers, little visibility into the staffing process, virtual company spread out over the country allows for fewer networking opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more visibility into the staffing opportunities, empower consultants to be more active in participating in their own staffing.

    Pros

    Pays great, supportive management team, great continuing education resources, great internal knowledge base to rely on when you don't have all the answers on a project. Great travel benefits! Wonderful work environment and place to work!!!

    Cons

    Only downside is 80-100% as a consultant, but that's why we get paid well.

    Advice to Management

    Allow consultants to grow into higher level positions within organization. Also, possibly develop a formal mentoring program for those high quality consultants that have experience and exibit leadership qualitites.
