What do you like about working at Virginia Tech?

"I enjoyed the people I worked with. It was a friendly and fun atmosphere and I actually enjoyed going into work each morning. I felt the leadership team was great as well. With my fantasy career, its more about what else I wouldve wanted to learn in college and apply in industry. Based on the research I've done, I found some impressive information about the future projects you have planned. This is the company I've been looking for, I want to be where things are developing, changing, and growing. And I want to make a meaningful contribution to that development and growth."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Research the company you are working for. Ask questions which allow a hiring manager to think of the question in the business sense as well as allow them to imagine you as a key player in the company's future"

What don't you like about working at Virginia Tech?

"While I did enjoy working there and appreciate the skills I developed during my time at Virginia Tech, I feel my skill set can be better utilized elsewhere, where my capabilities are more recognized and there is the opportunity for growth."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Employee engagement has to be engraved in the DNA and the company culture it needs to come from the top and has to be aligned with the goals of the company"

Writer
in Blacksburg, VA

What do you like about working at Virginia Tech?

"It will sound good on my resume and I get a paycheck."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"The pace of life is very slow. If you like to be constantly on the go, this is not for you. Also be prepared for massive egos. Also know there is limited upward mobility and that many administrative jobs require a master's degree or higher. I have the skills to have a managerial job, but not the master's degree. So the only communications jobs I can get here are part-time ones because you don't get full-time unless you are in some managerial role."

What don't you like about working at Virginia Tech?

"No full-time opportunities without a master's degree, all style over substance, not enough of a workload for me to stay busy. I hate the slow pace of things. I work too fast for this."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would make this place more about substance than about style."
