This is a fast paced place to work. It's a small company so you have a lot of freedom to develop your skills and use cutting edge technologies.
Unfortunately the development managers have zero human skills, they believe developers are robots that can work 24/7 and only care about getting the work done and show up to their bosses they completed the projects.
After 5 years of working there I suffer from chronic anxiety and had a lot of health issues that I am recovering from.
The compensation is really good but my health is more important than money.

Great place to work on latest technology and love trial by fire. Frequent priority changes if priorities actually get set. Management is running in many different directions and one hand does not know or care what the other is doing.
Money and opportunity were plentiful in hey day ( with Cisco ), technology and training were encouraged.
EMC management style took hold when cisco left, new management ruined the startup feel, Penny wise and dime foolish became the norm, Dell merger destroying VCE.
not a very nice place the employees talk behind your back if you don't know everything and who does when you first start a job? over heard an manager talking bad about me and was very hurt by it! expected me to know everything and it was unreal trying to get help in learning new process. No training classes at all and none of the employee are will to help
VCE is a 3rd party reseller and integrator with poor management, and an even worse product. Quality is low with a priority on quantity, not quality. Corporate mentality is push it out the door and fix it later and little to no work/life balance.
Operations & Program Manager (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – November 1, 2015
As part of the EMC Federation, this is a difficult place to find success. All interactions with customers are micro-managed by EMC account teams. EMC teams are all transactional and struggle to understand strategies much beyond storage and maintenance renewals. Maybe with the pending Dell merger this will improve. VCE can succeed but needs to break away from the EMC culture in order to do so. People are good though. Everybody helps and is willing to be honest and transparent.
Great healthcare, decent compensation, nice PTO allowance
EMC sales teams, difficult to have strategic conversations with customers
Logistics & Distribution Sr. Supervisor (Current Employee) – Franklin, MA – October 2, 2015
From the first day at VCE through the present, this has been the best work experience of my life as I've had the opportunity to have an impact and create the logistics and distribution teams and strategies.
PRODUCT MANAGEMENT CONSULTANT (Current Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – September 24, 2015
Great people coming from Cisco still without typical Cisco culture. Very flexible in terms of work hours. They care about delivery and not how you do it. They prefer smart people over just hardworking people. A combination of both would definitely rise here.

As a part of bigger company (EMC) bureaucracy is hitting employees
Global Resource Management (Current Employee) – Richardson, TX – August 4, 2015
At VCE, a typical day at work begins around 6:30AM and ends around 4:30 - 5:00PM. Each work day is usually a sprint from start to end and requires attention to detail, motivation and very strong organizational skills to stay on target. Working with customers around the glob requires awareness of strict deadlines.
The skills I learned at VCE will translate well with other companies. I honed my presentation skills, creating and building process flows, working with cross functional and multi-cultural teams and impeccable organizational skills. Co-workers are mostly amiable and easy to work with, and, most importantly, want to help you succeed.
The most difficult part of the job is balancing satisfaction between internal customers and external customers. Both are incredibly important and at times do not align with each other. Therefore, astute decision making is key for success.
The most enjoyable part of my job at VCE is that there is a fair work/life balance. The culture is such that if you are able to stay on top of your affairs and responsibilities, no manager will be breathing down your neck to come in on time or leave late. The hours I work, as stated above, are hours that I chose and deemed necessary to complete a typical work day. If something needs to be done over the weekend or even on a day off, it is understood that you will be checking your emails regularly in order to handle these situations.
Work/life balance is excellent, compensation is fair, ability for growth
