The job opening itself and the option to work with multiple project at the same time.

Why should anyone choose Vaco SF for Managed Services/Contingent Workforce?
I would recommend anyone to choose Vaco SF as it is a company with a lot of growth potential.

What’s the toughest business decision that you’ve ever made at this point in your career?
The toughest decision till now has been to onboard the development team when the requirement had not be closed (signed off). This was when I was in the role of a project manager at Wipro and there was a pressure from internal MSBI team to take in blocked resources on project. I had to negotiate the cost of the resource on the project to 25% with the MSBI for me to continue the project.

What’s the best thing about working at Vaco?
The best thing about Vaco is that I would get a chance to work with a team that is completely Vacoite.

I am a team player leading my team to achieving the set goal.
