    Pros

    Locate in Blacksburg, which is a very safe and quire place. People here are very nice. Public traffics are very convenient.

    Cons

    Not much cons unless you need to travel to other states. The airport is very small, and the airlines may delay and cancel very often under bad whether.

    I worked at VT full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay but very limited benefits. Offers a health plan but your "shared" costs are more than an outside plan. They must make money on it.

    Cons

    It's a fiefdom. Very smart and shrewd owners operate it like dictators. If you say the wrong thing or disagree with them, out you go. The supposed "partners" live in constant fear of getting fired. The owners secretly own many other related companies that are leaches. It's all about the money and they have no compassion for employees or customers whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Accept criticism and don't fire everyone who disagrees with you.
