    I worked at Scitor for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You have an opportunity at Scitor to do what's right and the company will stand behind you all the way. Everything at Scitor is exceptional.

    Cons

    I can not think of anything negative to say about Scitor. Scitor is everything you want in an employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up what you've been doing through the years. Don't change the formula unless is causes value added.

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

    Pros

    Everyone is very nice and helpful. It is very easy to talk to your manager and ask for help. The company is very flexible and does not micro-manage. The projects assigned to the interns are interesting and challenging. This place is great to work in and as an intern the experience is very beneficial.

    Cons

    As an intern it might get boring sometimes but it's not bad at all and the managers try to keep you busy as much as they can.

    Pros

    vacation policy, flexible hours, great benefits, solid culture, could pay for you to get your clearance which makes you an extremely valuable asset to move companies if you need to.

    Cons

    management is sometimes blind to the problems that are occurring beneath them and refuse to accept them or simply ignore them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    (see cons) management is sometimes blind to the problems that are occurring beneath them and refuse to accept them or simply ignore them

    Allow you the autonomy to get the job done. Excellent management support.

    Often required significant uncompensated overtime hours to complete proposals.

    Make sure to diversify and support all aspects of the company. You never know when one business area will lose a contract.

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

    Pros

    Excellent engagement by leadership, positive "vibe", top-notch talent and superb benefits

    Cons

    A bit risk-adverse when looking at new opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure we stay ahead of the curve strategically - the business environment is changing and while we have been very successful, future success will likely not be achieved with the same business plans. However, the cultural core of the company is rock-solid, and will carry us a long, long ways!

    I have been working at Scitor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are average. Can find better elsewhere.

    Cons

    No clear path for career advancement. For the most part, found management to be dishonest. Their primary goal is to place you in a position and leave you there to keep you billable.

    Very little to complain about at this company. The work may be a little bit boring once in a while, but its not a big deal at all.
