    Pros

    This company is a smaller company and the middle and upper management take a sincere interest in their employees and moral. The HR department is top notch and make in-processing and out-processing smooth.
    Salaries are competitive and benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    The range of job types that the company supports are currently limited. They fill roles such as system and network administrators for DOD contracts. They have begun to acquire roles in software development recently.

    Continue to pursue get a foothold in other aspects of the DOD contracts available.

    Pros

    Boecore is a fast growing company bidding on a lot of new contracts all the time, there are always places for you to move in the company and they like to make sure that you are happy where ever you are at. Boecore has the small company almost family feel, the HR, Accounting, Security personnel learn your name to your face and will help you with any question that you ask in a timely manner. Boecore has a great employee recongition program and listens to their employees, if you want to make a change to benefits or add a employee incentive program, speak up and they will look into making it happen and most of the time do make it happen.

    Cons

    Contracting work is always a con with the legnth of contracts being too short

    A decent contract position

    I have been working at Boecore

    Pros

    Competent and professional account management prepares contractors well for placement.

    Cons

    Once placed, communications between contractors and account management drop off quite a lot. Some of this is likely due to negotiated leadership roles between client and Boecore, and is a factor of the contracting game. However, be prepared to schedule your own "check-in" and weekly reports to Boecore account management or else your progress might go undocumented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a lot to like about working for Boecore: the work ethic is strong and the leadership is organized and effective. To retain experienced professionals, adjust hourly rates upwards and demonstrate clear career paths so contractors don't get locked into a DoD contract rut.

    I worked at Boecore

    Pros

    Great, talented people. Decent management. I would still be there if DoD funding had been renewed. Open communication between management and employees.

    Cons

    Very dependent upon DoD funding Small company, so medical benefits are a bit sparse. Not much opportunity to move between contracts if you are not a manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Keep negotiating for better medical benefits. Have a contingency plan in place to keep people while waiting for new contracts to get nailed down.
