    Excellent company to work for. Provide benefits, training dollars, and salary increases.

    I worked at CyberCore Technologies as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Management is very receptive to your needs, cares and concerns. They stand behind you and truly want you to succeed. They treat their employees with respect. They have an open door policy and will make suggested changes.

    I loved the atmosphere and people I worked with. We all got along and enjoy working together.

    Cons

    Do not reimburse for parking or try to negotiate parking for its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too tolerant of mediocrity. When employees aren't performing or don't show up for work for days they should be fired.

    Pros

    Your experience is based on what you make for yourself. Salary can be attractive. They leave you alone if keep your mouth shut. Paycheck shows up on time biweekly.

    Cons

    This is truly a body shop. You as an employee exist to bill a client for your time—nothing more, nothing less. The VA office has become top-heavy, with a disproportionate number of staffers to active employees, which only exacerbates the pressure, if your position ends expect to be terminated. Forget about career paths or advancement— those assurances are only touted to recruit.
    People with no authority or purpose were there only because they knew how to "play the game" and put themselves in a position of power. Management operated like a "good ol' boys club" and hired people because of their relationship, not merit. Favoritism and nepotism are rampant, along with bending the rules and eliminating others to accommodate their needs.
    Blockbuster profits coupled with layoffs and no raises for employees this year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reverse the pattern of taking away pay, benefits, and activities for field employees. Clean house of overhead at corporate. Stop the nepotism.

    I worked at CyberCore Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company pays well (however see benefits comment below)

    Cons

    Be prepared to be just another number if you are a contractor
    No career options once your contract is up
    No real interaction or sense of belonging
    Benefits were changed drastically for 2014 for the worse

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reassess the way you do business on the "people" side of the house and don't forget the people that got you to where you are today.

    Pros

    Most employees are in the field, which gives you alot of independence. Salaries are good. Benefits about average for this size company.

    Cons

    Mostly a subcontractor to larger firms like CSC and Northrop Grumman. That puts in a position of having supervisors who work for other companies and the supervisor at Cybercore has no idea what you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose site of where you come from as you grow to challenge the big boys.

    I worked at CyberCore Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pays extremely well, not many can come close to the salaries paid at CyberCore

    Cons

    Be prepared that if you come off contract, there is no bench. If you can't be put on a contract immediately, then you are pretty much out there door. As long as you are making CyberCore money then you are fine, but if you aren't then be prepared to get a swift shuffle out the door. If you have vacation, it isn't paid to you. Their hidden policy is they don't pay out vacation when you leave.

    Also, for training you will pay up front, then the time you are off for training you will not got paid. So their isn't much incentive to get training. So by people not taking the training since they don't want to miss out on pay, they don't have to reimburse a lot when it comes to training.

    As long as you know these facts going in the door, then you will be fine. Just don't expect much help when the contract ends or you if you are on the bench.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay vacation when employees leave and work on helping employees land jobs within the company.
