    I worked at Versabar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Custom equipment, creative design work, lots of good ppl, excellent testing facilities, good location, they make good money and pay good.

    Cons

    They live in a bubble. Not many ppl from other companies. Some organizational things could be streamlined. Engineers shouldn't be expected to send a PO to the vendor. Purchasing should take care of purchasing.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open minded.

    A lot of responsibility right off the bat for even a junior level engineer. Some rather nice people with exceptions here and there such as you will find at any company.

    Vbar would benefit from paying their employees more, and being more competitive in flex time and PTO.

    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern
    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern

    I worked at Versabar as an intern

    Pros

    My bosses were always very friendly and willing to help and teach material I was unfamiliar with.
    Interesting projects to be apart of

    Cons

    It is a small company, so there are limited chances for advancement. The work load was never very consistent, one week there would be nothing to do and the next we'd be slammed
