Integral to our success is our staff’s enthusiasm for solving tough problems by working together in teams to get the job done. We also foster a culture where each’s contribution is valued and performed with integrity, while maintaining a fun work environment. VT-ARC strives for excellence in all that is done for our clients and such achievement is recognized through service/merit awards. Moreover, we promote a sense of community larger than VT-ARC alone, where staff and institutional resources can be applied in service to our country.

At VT-ARC, we’ve created a flat organizational structure and encourage self-directed and mentoring professional development. In this way, the goals and objectives of a team are served regardless of whether it is for a customer project or a corporate business objective. VT-ARC employees are trained, trusted, and encouraged to work as teams and leverage the strengths of others to deliver innovative solutions to our customers.

Work-Life Balance
VT-ARC is a people-centric organization that strives to attract and retain high performing employees. But we understand that a satisfying work environment alone is insufficient for staff to achieve their greatest potential. Therefore, we look at our employees holistically and encourage them to strike a work-life balance that achieves high productivity and professional growth without sacrificing on life priorities. In addition to its generous benefits package, VT-ARC offers its employees flexible work schedule options and telework opportunities, and encourages staff to identify and pursue intellectual or other endeavors outside of their core work responsibilities.

VT-ARC does not discriminate against employees, students, or applicants on the basis of age, color, disability, gender, national origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, genetic information, veteran status, or any other basis protected by law.
