IT (Former Employee), Richardson, TXApril 8, 2014
Pros: speaking with people all over the world
Cons: never having any down time through the course of the day
Working at VCE was an entirely new experience, fish out of water. I had no IT experience, went in thinking I was going to be an Administrative Assistant and was thrown into the Help Desk department. The language and knowledge was totally new and it was the hardest part of the job to learn but became easier to learn once I was assigned to a proprietary – more... program and worked solely with it. The hightlight of my job was working with teams in Cork, Ireland and Boston, MA, interacting with them daily, learning about their culture and deciphering their dialect, as I'm sure they had to do the same with me. – less

Sr. vArchitect -Pre-Sales (Current Employee), RemoteJuly 16, 2013
Pros: backed by leaders in the enterprise space
Cons: internal politics and lack of understanding of the product from the parent investors
Great concept of a manufactured and tested platform built for the customer on solid and proven underlying products. When the model fits it's great, when it doesn't if makes this a very hard sell. Every platform has it's strengths and weaknesses.

Busy Start-up Company
Executive Briefing Advisor (Current Employee), Marlborough, MAApril 27, 2012
There is no typical day as an Executive Briefing Advisor at VCE. Where this is a start-up company everyone here has to wear many different hats to complete all of the tasks that need to be completed. If there was a typical day working here it would consist of opening the briefing center in the morning, making sure rooms are fully stocked and ready for – more... the customers. Greeting the customers as they enter and showing them to the room. Then going back to planning for future briefings. This entails talking directly with Sales Reps to help plan their visit here. As an advisor you plan what topics they will be hearing about and who will be presenting it for them, it is your job to secure each of the presenters as well. You are also in charge of ordering food and planning logistics. Along with all of this there is reporting, and feedback, and many other ad-hoc projects that come along. The hardest part of this job is being able to function with constant interruption. It takes a ton of organizational skill, and the ability to multi-task. The most enjoyable is when a briefing comes through and is extremely successful, you can really see all the work you put into it pay off! – less

Snr. IT Client Support Specialist (Former Employee), Ballincollig/OvensSeptember 27, 2012
Cons: having to join meetings late in the evening while at home (due to the us time difference)
I worked for VCE on a short contract implementing a new MRP application,this involved validating the application, training new users and trouble shooting any problems that arose.Typical days involved meetings with the cross functional teams both in the US and Ireland and troubleshooting problems that arose as the application was rolled out.I was part – more... of a larger IT team implementing this new application and really enjoyed the interaction with the wider team and the various departments of VCE who now use the application as part of their every day work.For me the most enjoyable part of the job was training new users on how to use the application, and the hardest part was dealing with impatient users.
I learned quite a lot about how a manufacturing company works and how parts are accounted for throughout the process. – less
