    I have been working at VinSolutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - The engineering org is constantly pushing to adopt current technologies (AWS, React, .NET Core) instead of sticking with the legacy tech decisions. I've learned SO much about cloud development, dev ops, and service resiliency since I joined. - Leadership is open to new ideas, and everyone has a voice. Talking with senior management and executives is not intimidating. - Great track record of hiring and retaining...

    Cons

    Everyone in the engineering org is salaried, but we still have to submit timesheets every week. This is something that could be automated by integrating with our work tracking tools. Annnnnnd that's it. It's hard to complain when I love coming to work and get paid a competitive salary to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the existing culture and keep the startup growth mindset going. The excitement in the engineering organization is fueled by a few key factors: - They get to use new and modern technology. Everyone feels like they're growing and learning. - They're given exciting and important projects to work on. - They get HONEST feedback about the success of products, both good and bad. Everyone I work with appreciates...

    I have been working at VinSolutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Room to grow Great benefits Good people Willingness to work with your schedule

    Cons

    Some weekends Inconsistent employee feedback Communication could be improved in the BDC Department.

    Advice to Management

    Keep One-On-Ones on schedule. When you set time aside to meet with your employees, don't continually blow them off. Things get busy, but when a meeting gets pushed back week after week, it hurts morale.

    So many bosses, they don’t even agree on chain of command. A lot of finger pointing when stuff hits the fan.

    I have been working at VinSolutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits and tons of PTO. Relaxed environment. Lots of opportunity for professional growth within the company. Monthly snack allowance or free gym membership - you pick. Nice raises and good yearly bonus. Lots of training resources. This last one may sound silly, but this has not been the case with most places I've worked - unlimited supply to kleenex and office supplies! No more having to buy your own tissues and...

    Cons

    You do need to be mindful of your work/life balance. I've caught myself working when I shouldn't frequently. Also, a few of the roles are underpaid from what I've seen - but overall the pay is really good for most departments. The plus on that is that HR recruiters wont waste your time - they'll tell you straight up what the pay for the role is before you get too deep into the interview process.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on going strong! I've never worked for such a great group of people. I know Vin/Cox is massive, so I'm sure that there are some "yikes" managers in the mix - but in Mission, KS - every manager I have come across thus far is deserving of their leadership role.
