    I have been working at VARtek full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working for VARtek for a few months now and I couldn't be happier with my role within the company. As a CTC, I'm able to use my previous experience as an educator teaching secondary MS and HS students in the classroom to now educating teachers how to optimize tech within their own classrooms. VARtek recognizes the need for roles such as mine and strives to provide schools with knowledgeable individuals that have tangible experience to help further the vision of each district. I feel comfortable suggesting new ideas without having to worry about immediate dismissal from management. Technology is supposed to supplement the learning process, not replace it, and there is little doubt about the efficacy of a company whose methodologies align with modern policies and practices emerging in a 21st century classroom.

    Cons

    Communication can be derailed with a company that services districts among multiple states around the US. I've had little trouble contacting and receiving a response from individuals in headquarters but there have been a few isolated cases of getting a hold of colleagues located in other districts.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to vet candidates through the application process that is currently in place. It may seem daunting initially but my experience was pretty seamless and I'd rather work for a company that takes time to get to know candidates and their previous work experience than one that desperately hires an applicant and realizes he/she doesn't fit well after a few months on the job.
