    Great Experience, Bad pay and management

    Current Employee - Network Operations Engineer  in  Denver, CO
    Current Employee - Network Operations Engineer in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Virtela Technology Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Experience is great, many opportunities to work on new equipment. A great place to get experience quickly, then move on to better paying opportunities.

    Cons

    Compensation is terrible, No performance reviews in almost 2 years (even though they were promised two years in a row). Not well enough staffed, all Tier 1 NOC positions had to be filled by interns as senior management would not pay to hire experienced engineers. Once the interns get enough experience, they then quit and go on to companies that will pay them well. Jobs in Denver are dwindling, even though they seem to be hiring a lot in the India operations center. This has steadily got worse since I started and shows no signs of improving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are your greatest asset, treat them like it!

    Pros

    If you have no experience you can gain some here if you are having trouble in the market place.

    Cons

    Management is not truthful. You'll be told many things in your offer that won't turn out to be true. Bonuses are a manipulation tool nothing more, even if you see one its based of if management likes you nothing else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't teach old dogs new tricks so don't bother trying.

    Completely Unprofessional Executive Management - starting with Vab Goel

    Current Employee - Vice President  in  Denver, CO
    Current Employee - Vice President in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Virtela Technology Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent business strategy in a consolidating market, with experienced, effective industry professionals

    Cons

    Vab Goel, founder and now chairman under NTT, is an inexperienced, loud mouth, horrible manager who berates people, constantly meddles, and has been the single impediment to the company growing and succeeding. Promod Haque, his boss at Norwest, refuses to step in and replace the guy, even after being asked by numerous presidents, officers, and line staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of Goel. The Japanese won't tolerate it, especially the American guys running the business in North America. Virtela is lucky they contained the lawsuits against him over the years. Abuse, terrible people skills, rude, offensive, are key words to describe working at Virtela following the tone set by Goel. Why else would there be such a revolving door of executives....

    Senior Management is a disaster

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Greenwood Village, CO

    I worked at Virtela Technology Services full-time

    Pros

    The people that work for Virtela are really great. The abusive culture from management has bred a family atmosphere amongst the staff so they can rely on each other and commiserate about the treatment they receive on a day to day basis.

    Cons

    The Senior Management does not care about the staff...AT ALL. You will be cussed out and publicly ridiculed for not constantly working 24 hours a day. They are greedy and self centered.

    Hopefully they will be stepping aside now that they have been sold to NTT, but I wouldn't hold my breath. Their greed knows no bounds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire actual MANAGERS, not slave drivers. Learn how to treat people. There is life outside of your office. Your staff consists of people with families and personal interests. Learn to respect them, not work them until they drop.
