    I worked at Science & Technology Corp. as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    --Stable hours (very little overtime required) make it easy to achieve a decent work-life balance.
    --Compensation is in line with industry standards for my area.
    --Location worked well for me; this facility supports a large number of DoD contracting firms, so it was easy to learn about other companies directly from those employees. (This became vitally important once I understood the STC reality.)

    Cons

    --Favoritism is the norm; management routinely hires and promotes personal friends and family members with sketchy qualifications above technically qualified personnel.
    --Many managers cannot manage (or even read Excel spreadsheets for that matter). They don't know regs, they don't know the standards for their direct reports, they have no training in people skills...basically they seem to be winging it.
    --Competent, professional individuals don't stay, so although your colleagues will include some great people who are just waiting to get out, most will be incompetent performers with entitlement issues who are barely (and badly) covering the task orders.
    --Employees are absolutely not supported: I was physically assaulted by one of the customer staff, and despite trying to handle it in an appropriate, professional manner by following training guidances and reporting it through my chain of command, I was blamed for the assault and retaliated against (by STC management) for reporting it.
    --Overall, the phrase "ethics trainwreck" applies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not enough to drop retired military staff into high-profile contract spots then prop them up with admins so they can schmooze customers. Incompetent managers do not go unnoticed by the customer; neither do incompetent technical staff who are suspiciously promoted immediately after being chastised by the customer for poor performance. The days of 5- and 7-year contracts with endless extensions and follow-ons are over, and competition for awards is hotter than ever. Bare bones: STC cannot continue to operate this way and expect to survive.

    I have been working at Science & Technology Corp.

    Pros

    Working on the latest cutting edge technologies. Rolling out FTTx and LTE. If you are proactive and motivated you can learn a lot.

    Cons

    The office décor and furniture is a throwback to the 80’s.. literally! It looks like rejected items from IBM office furniture sale and is so demotivating to walk into the office with the horrible dull colors and there is not a single plant to be seen. The Cafeteria is expensive and unbearable and has been the same for the last 16 months. Forget about getting recognized with promotion and bonus if you’re not a Saudi.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please focus on dcreating a good stretagy for the STC group which can be followed by all the group companies. No group technical stretagy and cooperation being communicated to employees in the individual companies.
