Culture and Values
I was at V&E for almost 20 years before I was laid off. While working here I experienced amazing people who really care about their employees. Depending on the department you may not have a lot of professional growth, but they try to work with you. They salary is competitive, and benefits are awesome. They know how to appreciate their employees throughout the year.

Pros and Cons
Lots of random free food, regular party's, and annual bonus.
No real professional growth for most administration.
