I have been working at Serco, Inc. full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good place to get a security clearance. Supportive line management and colleagues.

Cons

Minimal chance for upward mobility. No clear vision or direction for future growth. Almost all jobs rely on government funding. Local business development non-existent. Benefits keep on getting more expensive with reduced coverage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better communication with employees! Provide opportunities for training. Better compensation package and opportunities for advancement.

    I worked at Serco, Inc. full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are some very nice people working here.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? The company is a mess. It started out well until Serco acquired the company that I started with, and has been in a steady decline since. There are constant layoffs and people are worried about losing their jobs. Lousy high-deductible health insurance. No more tuition reimbursement. UGLY office politics. Bullying is rampant and upper management seems to think that managers making their subordinates repeatedly cry is acceptable. Employees are rarely promoted. This is also the most bizarre work environment I have ever seen. One of the managers in my department would regularly watch porn on his work computer. One of the IT helpdesk techs would regularly distribute pirated movies to employees, including VP's. Also the managers in my department felt threatened by educated people and would thus resort to nasty tricks to get people fired because they lacked the education and/or intelligence to find a better job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Workplace bullying is NOT acceptable. Also, employees need to have their skills matched with better jobs, even if it is a lateral move.
