    I worked at Scientific Research full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Interesting work. Large enough to win good contracts with the government. The work feels meaningful, purposeful, and appreciated.

    Cons

    Not many locations around the country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If there was any advice to give upper management, I would, but there is none. I worked for this company three years and I never had any issue at any management level.

    I worked at Scientific Research full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company makes room for you to do your job. Company understands that their greatest assets, are the people that work for them.

    Cons

    There are no negatives working for this company. I always got the support I needed to do my job. Even being away from corporate HQ, at a remote location, I always got the administrative support required to accomplish my tasking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Whatever you are doing to keep the rank and file employee happy, keep doing it. You'll see the results in performance.

    Former Employee - Senior Analyst  in  Colorado Springs, CO
    Former Employee - Senior Analyst in Colorado Springs, CO

    I worked at Scientific Research as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    SRC teams with other professional defense firms to solve DOD's most pressing challenges through the Joint Test and Evaluation Program. They are one of four prime contractors that compete for JT&E projects.

    Cons

    The Colorado Springs JT&E market is shrinking as a result of re-engineering by the JT&E Program Office. Two-year Joint Tests are concentrated at Nellis AFB, NV; Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD; and Suffolk, VA. Twelve-month quick reaction tests (QRT) locations are still dispersed to meet project sponsor needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand the SRC portfolio in Colorado Springs with new areas of work since there will be no future JT contract work here.

    Pros

    Company has quality people at mid and lower level managment as well as at the lower levels. Has a good and solid market nitch.

    Cons

    The senior leadership in the company lack vision and nickel and dime employees to death. Poor business development support. Zero training opportunities internally for employees. Just cut the 401K benefits in half.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some leadership and care for your employees.

    I have been working at Scientific Research full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They hire the best people.
    They take care of their employees.
    They enjoy a diverse mission.
    Management is responsive to your needs.

    Cons

    Annual leave for salaried employees was insufficient.
    As a small company, opportunities in a number of states are limited.
    Smaller contracts, six months in duration for example, are common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to lean forward on the business development aspect of SRC. Make time to keep all parties, particularly subordinates engaged in the vision of the company. If you demonstrate your enthusiasm and share your vision, your employees will carry you across the finish line.

    I worked at Scientific Research full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Tasking included technical and exciting projects.

    Cons

    My project was short term and the proposed follow-on was not picked up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We had an excellent group that had to disperse because of lack of tasking. It is difficult to re-establish a team once they are laid off and pursue other options.

    Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in Alexandria, VA

    I worked at Scientific Research full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I was given a lot of autonomy to work with the client without a lot of oversight once I had time to acclimate to the new job. It made the position that much more enjoyable.

    Cons

    Like many companies working for the DoD, jobs come and go with the contracts. The company is very dependent on those contracts.
