Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Slavery can best describe Michael Longo at his company Vital Voice and Data.  He swindles you out of your fair pay and you ultimately work for free.

He has had 33 employees in the past 3 years of his company.  The reason for the high turn around, he wont pay his employees.   Now people who have families to support cant, while he lives the high life.

#1 Consumer Comment

Original poster is 100% accurate!

AUTHOR: IT GUY - (United States of America)

Michael Longo is nothing but a snake.  I highly advise anybody who thinks about doing business with him or work for him to find another option.  He treats his employees horrible and lies to his customers charging them for services that he doesn't even provide.  He lies and charges big companies a monthly fee to back up their servers and "protect" their information.  If only they knew none of their valueable information is being backed up and can be lost at any minute due to a system crash or natural disaster.  Michael Longo is nothing but a con man looking to rip you off and just move onto the next dummy that he suckers in.  His company is going down the tubes and even his partner couldn't put up with his nonsense anymore and left him.  Stay far far away from Vital Voice and Data and Michael Longo's joke that he calls a business.  You been warned!!

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Yes, this report is entirely incorrect...

AUTHOR: EES - (United States of America)

I am an ex-employee of Vital Voice and Data; I have to say that my experience working for Mike was a pleasant one. Trust me I have nothing to gain by saying this because the one complaint I have with Mike is that he did not listen to my warning when the client (SFC) I was contracting for hired another tech on their own and pushed me out of my job by making up a fictional incident instead of just saying how they (the client, not VVD) got a friend to do the job cheaper. I feel that if Mike took what I was telling him a little more seriously I would have not taken the collateral damage. However, Mike always treated me professionally and with respect, he paid me on time, every time without any issue. Overall, I liked Mike and Tim both, they are professional, intelligent, and fair people and regardless of what happened to me in my situation I really don't blame Mike. He was one of my better bosses and whom ever wrote this report was obviously upset and disgruntled but, at the end of the day business is business and this individual certainly took whatever happened personally.

#3 Consumer Comment

Above Comment is WRONG

AUTHOR: TCC - (United States of America)

I have to concur with KCR's comment above. I too have witnessed the day-to-day dealings of Michael Longo and the Vital Voice and Data team, from both a business and technical perspective. At no point in time did I feel that I was being "swindled" by Michael or any members of his team but that they were providing the best solutions to help my business grow. I have also contracted out work with technicians at VVD and was very pleased with the result. The technician was on time and completed the job correctly and efficiently. Through these dealings I could see that Michael was very supportive of his team members and no point did I see them as "slaves."

#4 UPDATE Employee

This Report is Absurd

AUTHOR: KC - (United States of America)

These statements regarding Michael Longo and VVD could not be further from the truth.  I have witnessed first hand the value Michael sees in his employees, and always been paid my salary on time!  It is disappointing that an individual would stoop so low to defame someones good name, especially considering the grounds in which he was terminated.
