    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chantilly, VA

    I worked at SOC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    nice location, easy commute off of Rt 28. A few of the longer lasting employees are nice, but most keep to themselves.

    Cons

    in-fighting, micro managed, no clue as to how to manage a contract. Management in one building, away from the workers. high turnover in support arena due to "old boy network".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the support system, not just the job.

    Pros

    I liked the infrastructure of the company. It was dynamic and fast paced

    Former Employee - Training in Los Alamos, NM

    I worked at SOC full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, pay, and location for family life. The work place provides you the opportunity to study for college. It is up to the individual to take hold of this benefit. Also the pay is very suitable for providing for family life.

    Cons

    Management difficulties and long hours in one place. Housing prices in the Los Alamos area very high. Commuting maybe necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better attention to formatted procedures and follow those procedures.

    I have been working at SOC

    Pros

    The best reason to work for SOC is the chance to support an important mission of the United States.
    There are many opportunities to make a difference.

    Cons

    The biggest issue at SOC is a lack of management.
    In addition, there is no communication and management has shown a failure to learn from past mistakes.
