What I like about the company

Virginia Tech is very supportive

What I dislike about the company

Racial issues and racial inequity are still prevalent (in the sense that you can tell who has the power - white people). White people (regardless of gender) are at the top, for sure. Additionally, any mention of discussing "Diversity and Inclusion" is fairly relative and does not really result in positive feedback. Additionally, it is taken with criticism and the push that, "of course we are advancing this agenda"; but, if you look at the overall school, it is definitely lacking.

  • None that I can think of specifically, there are reasons for the way everything is done for the most part.

What I like about the company

My boss is always pushing for his employees to continue improving themselves be it by taking classes through the school or attending conferences related to our office. Very supportive of his employees achieving any goals they have or creating them if they don't.

What I dislike about the company

It's a govt institution so there's bureaucracy in everything that is done but if the higher ups are able to keep that away from their employees then work could be done more efficiently.

Suggestions for improvement

  • There are opportunities to open discussion on how employees transition to retirement and opportunities to create areas to foster innovation. I do acknowledge limitations due to state policies. However, state regulations should be a challenge to be surpassed not a crutch for inaction. With a large organization, communication is a challenge to overcome. Inherent hierarchy concentrates communication efforts toward one specific population and fails to be inclusive it priorities to all workforce population.

What I like about the company

An higher educational institution that has a high sense of service and importance of their main clients - the students. With finite resources, uses efforts to assure high ROI for those seeking degrees. Understands the importance of a diverse and stable workforce.

What I dislike about the company

It is always important to focus on assuring equitable distribution of organizational funding and consideration of consistent review of fair and equitable compensation for like positions. Some consideration to addressing salary compression on a more consistent basis.
