A company of good people in need of real leadership

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

It is possible to maintain a healthy professional/personal balance and enjoy a decent quality of life. The culture is collegial. Employees are united in a common purpose and demonstrate respect for each other.

Cons

There is considerable churn in the organization as new processes and policies are continually being rolled out. This creates inefficiencies that affect operations and profitability, and breeds frustration among employees. The company is too heavily invested in the federal market and there are few opportunities for individuals who are entrepreneurial and interested in striking out into new markets.

Advice to Management

The leadership consists almost entirely of retired military. Bringing in new leaders with more experience in business administration and with backgrounds outside the federal market space would bring new ideas and opportunities to the organization, and provide greater value to shareholders.

    I worked at Versar (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are OK, not great. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    No leadership. No clear direction. They don't care about creating a consistent product or service for their clients No staff training to perform a consistent work product. They only care about the next small company they will buy with a pipeline of work to turn over a profit, at the expense of jobs!

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your staff and staff's product to the clients.
