    I worked at VTLS Inc full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some upward mobility, opportunity to learn, travel. Nice and talented people as colleagues. Beautiful area of Virginia and situation in the Corporate Research Center by Virginia Tech.

    Cons

    Management was largely terrible. Either you were being micromanaged or not managed at all. Attempts to approve things were met with smiles and approval but never followed through upon.

    Advice to Management

    None needed since it was purchased by another company. If they moved over to the new company I hope it is a chance to change their ways.

    I worked at VTLS Inc (More than a year)

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing positive about this company - in fact they aren't even in business < they were bought out

    Cons

    Horrible Management....Absolutely terrible place to work. No advancement opportunities and when employees do well they are punished.

    I worked at VTLS Inc as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    the co-workers are nice, and higher level managers are easy to talk to. The co-workers and managers all seem pretty intelligent. The overall work environment is nice and friendly.

    Cons

    The training was a bit more incomplete and needs more organization. Salaries can be improved.

    Pros

    This is a great place to start and gain valuable experience. It was a fun place to work with great people.

    Employees are underpaid and undervalued. Good equipment and up to date technology are hard to come by.

    I have been working at VTLS Inc full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only good thing about this is company is that it is in Blacksburg and close to VT.

    Cons

    Micromanagement by Chairman for every little issue. Company is not growing and salaries are below par. No 401 K match or bonuses, but senior management would rather spend a good amount of X-mas party.

    Family members of senior management are hired when they are not suitable for the job and would actually delay the assignments. No growth and no prospect in this small company as it hasn't grown since last 10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees

    Pros

    Solid position, gained good technical experience. Hours were regular - unusual in this business.

    Cons

    My particular team had a lead that was very inexperienced, which made my experience there unpleasant.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of how team leads are treating their team. In my case, my lead would get upset with me if I asked a question that he did not know the answer to.
