    I worked at Version 1 for more than a year

    Pros

    The contractor are treated almost the same as the full time employees. The company allows contractors to to certificates, have access to the company's training material which is not very common thing.

    Cons

    The quarterly revies are included for the contractors as well even that it doesn't make much sense.

    I have been working at Version 1 full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of experience to be gained by working on multiple customer configurations in a fast paced environment. People are very motivated and really sharp and are easy to work with and helpful. There is a great team spirit. Version 1 are really customer focused and as far as I have seen always put the customer first. There is a great ethnic diversity which makes for a great work experience.

    Cons

    When onsite long term the benefits of working for Version 1's great culture are diluted as you end up with mixed goals those of the customer and those of Version 1 which don't always line up.

    Advice to Management

    More support for staff that are long term on a customer site

    I have been working at Version 1 full-time

    Pros

    Very ambitious company which opens up great opportunities for employees. The core values are not something that are just written on the walls, they are part of everyday life in Version 1 from the CEO down. More often than not the core values are quoted in meetings internally. The quarterly rhythm is a great way to keep momentum going throughout the year.

    Cons

    Very fast paced company and would only suit someone who is able/willing to change and adapt as the company grows.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows further, don’t lose sight of the things that make it a great place to work, core values, employee engagement, customer satisfaction.

    Constant change and growth. The values culture is real and visible every day.

    Cons

    There is a relentless push to grow and deliver so you need to work hard to get personal development time.

    I have been working at Version 1 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Is a big company and well structured, offers a range of benefits and rotation to other areas. Great Work/Life Balance

    Cons

    It feels like each team is a whole different company... Benefits could apply to one team but not to another, management was very poor in all teams I've worked on and there is no proper way to give this feedback internally, the only way we had was to go directly to the head of the area, who did nothing to change the situation, even with a lot of employees leaving the company because of this. Technical expertise was very...
