RVM Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Ruby Version Manager, often abbreviated as RVM, is a software platform for unix-like operating systems designed to manage multiple installations of Ruby on the same device.The entire ruby environment including the Ruby interpreter, installed RubyGems, and documentation is partitioned. A developer can then switch between the different versions to work on several projects with different version requirements. In addition to MRI, the standard Ruby interpreter, RVM functions as an installer for various other implementations of Ruby. These include JRuby, mruby, MacRuby, IronRuby, Maglev, Rubinius, Ruby Enterprise Edition, Topaz, and GoRuby (an interpreter optimized for code golf). In addition, RVM supports the installation of patched versions of MRI.

A fomer contract attorney shared this in a review "Take any gig you can instead of coming to RVM. They'll tell you that you'll work 40 hours a week for a month. Then the project will go down. You may come back for a day or two and then it will go down again. They'll keep telling you that more work is coming "soon.". Then, out of embarrassment or apathy, they will just stop calling."

Director of Human Resources (Former Employee) says

"This is not a good place to work. They burn you out and really don't care much about your life. You are overworked and the management and employees are not quite nice."

Assistant to the President (Former Employee) says

"People worked in fear There was nothing structured. The management did not treat employees with respect People were expected to work excessively long hours At that time the medical insurance was a joke"

Contract Attorney (Former Employee) says

"Take any gig you can instead of coming here. They'll tell you that you'll work 40 hours a week for a month. Then the project will go down. You may come back for a day or two and then it will go down again. They'll keep telling you that more work is coming "soon.". Then, out of embarrassment or apathy, they will just stop calling. Cons: Mandatory unpaid breaks, no phones, no eating at desk"

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) says

"Take my advice. They have had a huge amount of lay offs and the company is incredibly unstable and if you value stability and job security DO NOT BOTHER."

Sr. Project Manager (Former Employee) says

"RVM is a train that has gone off its rails. You are required -- actually scheduled -- 6-7 days a week, 9-14 hours a day. Management is a mess. Training is not provided and you are expected to intuitively know the Company's best practices and proprietary tools. You are set up for failure. Baseless blame is placed on employees to cover for others. I ruined my career track by going to RVM. And the company is in a downward spiral with abundant layoffs of senior personnel. Do yourself a favor and get a job at Starbucks instead. Cons: Management"

Project Manager (Former Employee) says

"The staff is great and helpful but it stops there. Management is another story as they lure people with the expectation your in good hands. But, its far from the truth. The owners only come around to point out all the negative in the employees. Yet never show up to the positive moments. They run the compnay on fear of losing your job. Cons: Very bad management and lack of empathy for staff"

Administrative Assistant to Executive Assistant (Current Employee) says

"I believe this company takes on more than it can handle especially since they have cut staff and are trying to gain a bigger client base, thereby having existing staff work 10 -12 hours per day. Cons: paying 30% of benefits, long work hours"

Infrastructure Project Manager (Former Employee) says

"Good, caring VPs who founded the company themselves. Some employees forced to wear too many hats as a result of the push to run lean on department headcounts. Cons: Bait and switch permanent position promises, non-recognition of achievements or contributions"

Software testing (Former Employee) says

"It was a software developing based company.and it's a start up.the first projuct was driving.drovin is an educational software for study purposes.it covers entire academic processes"

N/A (Former Employee) says

"great place to gain experience, especially as an intern, you get taught a lot of things, great place to bring in new ideas, great location near public transportation Cons: Lots of turnover, not very professional"

eDiscovery Analyst (Former Employee) says

"You find yourself working very long hours to satisfy customer's needs. However, if you are willing to put in the work, there is a lot that you can learn. RVM uses many tools that will be useful in your career. Cons: Management"

Former Employee - Project Manager says

"I worked at RVM Enterprises full-time for more than a year Cons: RVM executives neither have a solid business model to keep the door open long term, nor the ability to stay competitive in the eDiscovery space."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at RVM Enterprises full-time Cons: Entire management. Paints a pretty picture when hiring, then the downward spiral starts. Quickly."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at RVM Enterprises full-time Cons: Management, Morale, Benefits, long hours, only 1 day off a week maximum"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I have been working at RVM Enterprises full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Micro Management to the extreme! The CEO, Executive Chairwoman and CTO get every email sent to any group in the company. Heaven forbid they don't know everything at all times! What is even worse is they have no clue how to run a company that operates in the real world. The bought a crappy company and use that as an excuse why money is tight when the real reason is business is way down because of lack of new work or clients. The place will take everything from you, eat you up and then spit you out without a care but want loyalty from you in return. The positive review in January seems like an HR submission to make the company seem like a good place to work if you work hard, don't believe it."

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I have been working at RVM Enterprises full-time Cons: If you want to work your butt off for management who thinks it’s ethical and fair to steal company money to finance their own personal expenses and then these same people lie to your face that they have no money to spare on bonuses and raises because they invested so much in the company ... If you want to work your butt off only to get fired and sued by management because they feel like you should be their little puppy bringing on new clients but getting no reward from it... If you want to work your butt off for gains you will never see... If you want to work your butt off for management that acts like it’s an episode of The Sopranos... then you’re in the right place."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at RVM Enterprises full-time Cons: Management is unsophisticated, unprofessional and without a strategy. It's a mom and pop leadership structure which is trying to price-cut the competition to attract business. No way this company in its present structure will make it past the next 2-year mark."

Former Employee - Project Manager - Litigation Support/E-discovery says

"I worked at RVM Enterprises full-time Cons: So many. The main one is the CEO who thinks he knows how to run an eDiscovery shop. Hiring exec people who look good on paper but bring no value to the business is not going to help the business. RVM's reputation outside is horrendous. So many people are dissatisfied with the pay, the benefits (their 401k is absolute garbage don't even waste your time saving money), but what is the most alarming is the high turn over rate and no one seems to realize that good hardworking people leave not because they're incompetent but because they're truly unhappy! The CEO gloats that RVM is such an amazing company to work with! Ha!! That's nice to live in a fantasy world. He doesn't know ANYTHING about eDiscovery. He spends the money earned on stupid parties and gives nothing back to the employees. This place is such a waste of time. I don't understand how they can still be in business."

Anonymous says

"I worked at RVM Enterprises Cons: RVM's pattern of company-wide expansion and contraction yields de facto short-term employment and adverse inferences in future employment prospects."

Former Employee - Project Manager says

"I worked at RVM Enterprises full-time for more than a year Cons: Incredibly high turnover. Senior management has no education, training, or demonstrated insight/curiosity about e-discovery, litigation, etc. They are also utterly incompetent when it comes to actual management. Benefits are terrible. Company leadership is deceptive and treats most staff poorly in the end."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at RVM Enterprises full-time Cons: Lot of pressure, bad benefits, many smart people left"
