It all depends on the aircraft, weight, altitude and fuel load.

If you try to climb too rapidly using VS, then the aircraft pitches up too much and speed is lost.

At FL240, the air is thinner and you need to climb more gently. Try +800 or even less.

For the 737 I climb out at 250 kts and about 2,000 fpm until 10,000. Then I increase airspeed to 310 kts and maintain around 1,500 fpm thru FL200. Around FL260 climb at .72 Mach and set vertical speed around 1,000 fpm. I usually finish the last 5,000 feet at around 500 fpm and accelerate to .74 Mach. It works out pretty good, might have to change the numbers for heavier weights and fuel loads.
