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

    Pros

    Amazing work-life balance, incredible benefits + education fund, tons of support and training from senior leaders

    Cons

    The company changes their strategy too often

    Advice to Management

    When planning to make a strategic shift, talk to the salespeople and recruiters first to get their ideas. Explain what your goal is, and find a way to work together with the team to reach it.

    THANK YOU for your review! This is Susie Hall, president of Vitamin T, and I completely agree with you that we can do a better job of involving our agents and sales teams in strategy, which (as I hope you are experiencing!) we are working hard to do. With a large team it's sometimes ...

    I worked at Vitamin T full-time

    Pros

    They are a good tool as a link with other companies in the field. They know people in most of every company in the design industry.

    Cons

    Lack of professionalism in some of the staff members. Many times they told me they had a job for me, but one day before they cancelled. Also, all the contracts they had for me were for a few days only.

    Advice to Management

    As an example, I had a 3 week-contract with a company and neither the company or Vitamin T had the decency to tell me the contract was over before the last day. It looked there was a poor communication between both companies. Another situation was that I wanted to apply to a job that was perfect for me and they did not let me to do so. I was very convinced I was perfect for the role they were offering and they didn't...

    I have been working at Vitamin T full-time

    Pros

    If you are prepared to work hard and focus on growth this is a great Company that will reward your efforts. You can really drive your own destiny, career and your results are very visible without politics. This is a very supportive environment for talent that are willing to give their all surrounded by smart, great people that care about what they do.

    Cons

    The structure has been very flat in the past which has been challenging however that is now changing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going on the path that has been identified for growth. The Company, culture and staff have a lot to offer the staffing industry and clients. This still feels like a start up with a lot of flexibility with the backing of a large Corporate. The best of both worlds - your voice is heard.

      I have been working at Vitamin T full-time

      Pros

      Young - vibrant culture Innovative approach Not your typical staffing agency Opportunity for travel and cross lateral growth

      Cons

      No growth opportunities - very flat structure A lot of pressure from a sales perspective at times High turn over - I understand this has gotten better over the last two years

      Advice to Management

      Play on the strengths of your employees - recognize the high performers and let go of the ones that take advantage of the flexibility that the company offers. Pay your employees more!

      I worked at Vitamin T full-time

      Pros

      The culture is definitely great, and the leadership team, at least from what I experienced, really does take an interest and try to help you succeed. They provide amazing benefits to all employees, and it's not a bad place to be.

      Cons

      The caveat to my pros is this: your experience is really going to depend on the market you are in. If you are located in a thriving market with a big team, you will likely love your experience at VT. If you land in a small market, where this isn't much of an established team, then it will be a very lonely and, frankly, boring experience. Though the leadership team tries to help, they aren't really able to dedicate the...

      Advice to Management

      Take care of the people in small markets the way you take care of teams in big markets. Give those team members similar attention, training, and kudos when they do well. Don't expect to drop them in and then let them flounder until they are forced to leave. The people in smaller markets rely on everyone else helping them to succeed, and giving them props when they do, since they likely don't have a team rooting for them....

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

      Pros

      the support and collaboration of the team is endless. i have never felt so connected to a team that is completely remote. everyone is in it 100% and the motivation, success, and support is contagious. work-life balance is amazing!

      Cons

      none that i can think of as a con...just some growing pains but the pains are all positives.

      Advice to Management

      keep the motivation and connectivity strong! I love how open we can all be and how management is extremely open to ideas/thoughts/changes in order to better the team and each individual.

      Pros

      The office space is great, the management go above and beyond to be helpful, we're provided with awesome Macs and fantastic tech support, and every step along the way I've felt supported and comfortable . Also, the work/life balance is really fantastic. I truly look forward to coming into work every day.

      Cons

      We need more conference rooms and spaces for small teams to sit together!

      Advice to Management

      A few weeks after I started working at Vitamin T the president of the company Susie Hall came and met with our team and work out of our office for a few days. She answered all of our questions and helped work with all of us to make our VT team grow and become mightier. Keep doing what you're doing. I love working here and I'm so glad I'm able to be a part of the Vitamin T family.

      Pros

      Getting pinged from Glassdoor to write a review....yes sir! I am almost at the 1 year mark, and I could not be more proud to work at VitaminT. Upon coming to this company I wanted to use my skill set to grow as a professional, but also see the company grow in revenue and expand in its market. Along the way we built new processes based on the initiatives that leadership has taken, and in return I have received...

      Cons

      I think I am a bias reviewer, because I see a lot of positive here. I do acknowledge that many have left because of the changing landscape of the company. From BDM's to AD's is a tough transition for many, and as we move forward there will probably be significantly more changes. But what this really means is that we have the opportunity to be more strategic. Use that to your advantage. With this in mind, stay...

      Advice to Management

      There was one time when someone from the C-suite came to our market, sat us down and explained some of the issues that the company was facing concerning turn over. I was blown away by the humility, and inspired to help solve the strategic problems the company was going through. With that said; continue to lead by example. Continue to inspire others to rise up. Continue to focus on the "Blue Ocean" that we are all...
