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

    Pros

    The biggest thing that stands out is our culture (teamwork!) and desire to provide the best customer service possible. Leadership team that listens to feedback and takes action. Excellent pay and benefits package.

    Cons

    Really none that I can think of - sometimes communication could be better, but again, leadership listened and it has improved already

    I worked at Vecna Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Really great benefits, nice people

    Cons

    Leadership doesn't know what they're doing and constantly making everything sound better than it is until a huge layoff happens. Also pays below market.

    I worked at Vecna Healthcare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are not many pros, and I am only writing this sentence to achieve the 20 word minimum. The pros are: healthcare benefits, 401k matching, and PTO - literally the only good things.

    Cons

    Where to start? - The “executive” team is a joke and literally guess at everything they do - They lie to their customers and wonder why they can’t bring in any net new - As another person put it, the technology and platform would’ve been cutting edge back in early 2000’s. They put absolutely no money into R&D - They set unrealistic expectations on their employees - They take advantage of new grads and make it seem like it’s the “norm” in the workforce- jokes on them for when you burn out and realize there’s better out there - The executive team constantly argues and points fingers at one another. Absolutely no ownership of responsibility or integrity - This is a very toxic environment and you will not be successful here - Training is a foreign concept in every single department

    I worked at Vecna Healthcare full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Easy to get employment at this company.

    Cons

    This company has terrible work environment, and does not operate like a professional company. They recruit and take advantage of fresh college graduates. There is no mentoring, and no career prospects in this company as they are not growing. All they do is keep their grants and do insignificant projects. Do not waste your career here, go to a company where you have real growth and prospects.

    I have been working at Vecna Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Awesome benefits, good location, flexible work schedule, excellent CEO - great opportunity for growth as the business has developed many partnerships and created a culture of teamwork and putting huge emphasis on customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    Vecna has gone through many changes - and has learned some tough lessons along the way. I've been reading through some of the recent reviews and it's sour grapes - if it was so horrible and toxic those employees should have left the company instead of being terminated involuntarily.
