"I've worked at Virginia Tech for only 4 years but it has been without doubt my favorite job. The environment and colleagues are amazing and the freedom to do my job in the best way is wonderful. It falls victim to the low wages of state jobs however."

Virginia Tech Employee

"I started working at VT in 2012 in Enterprise Systems. They biggest issue I have is that because of educations audits, they take 'separation of duties' to the extreme. This makes it so that a lot of employees spend a lot of time waiting on someone else to fix their systems (specifically server of DB problems). It is frustrating to say the least. The people are nice though and I enjoy interfacing with people on campus. Pay isn't great."

Computer Support Technician
in Blacksburg, VA

"Virginia Tech has a lot of desirability in name and, sadly, in name alone. Working for various sections of the Virginia Tech organization is underwhelming, poorly managed, and they don't, as they claim, offer competitive salaries. They treat their employees as expendable, useless resources, and they follow by making it clear that they do not have any sympathy. And this is from someone who voluntarily left them on good terms, I was not fired, I was not laid off."
