    I have been working at Vsd full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Treated like a true professional; trust runs deep in this company. Back when there were curriculum development contracts employees were free to telecommute and the work environment was outstandingly happy.

    Cons

    Contract futures have waned; not sure what happened with contract sustainability but with the loss of contracts, obviously, went the jobs. This once proud, large company has been cut to bare bones over the past three years. I long for the glory years of 2010 & 2011!

    Advice to Management

    Get more curriculum building contracts where employees can telecommute and be happy to turn around excellent product quickly.

    Pros

    Great "family" feel. This organization is very employee friendly from CEO down to front line workers. Salary levels are good for a small organization.

    Cons

    Too scattered across multiple business areas resulting in confusioin with regard to priorities. Management sometimes fails to communicate priorities resulting in last minute work requirements.

    Pros

    Le rythme est OK, les chefs sont OK, le bâtiment est neuf. Toute le monde peut être joint sur le même site.

    Cons

    La situation est un peu à l'écart de tout. Dans l'ensemble, les budgets diminent. Seules quelques production se font hors site, les rapports sont pour la plupart faits au bureau.
