    Pros

    The company is truly focused on employee opportunity and growth. The team sees company talent as the key to its future success.

    Boecore is a small, woman-owned company that treats its employees with respect and pays them what they're worth, and they have a great corporate culture.

    I have been working at Boecore full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    We were all excited when we heard Boecore was coming in on the SEWSII contract. (I'm an existing SEWSI employee). Boecore even held an Open House so we all could get to know one another and were very welcoming. I loved my job at SEWS, it was very rewarding.

    Cons

    Then Boecore came in and didn't keep ANY of the Cybersecurity employees, a total of six of us, currently on contract. Boecore bumped us and brought in their own people (probably from some other contract they just lost). We were all hoping to transition with Boecore..so so sad!

    Advice to Management

    To the owner and program manager on the SEWSII contract, shame on you! For taking away jobs that belonged to other people!

    Pros

    Boecore is Employee conscious, treat their employees fairly (almost like family) , small business (means that management is close by and engaged worth the employees), and they provide promotion opportunities through mentorship and other programs.

    Cons

    Not a lot of coins with this one. Boecore deals almost exclusively with governments contracts, so if you doubt have a clearance of the proper certifications there isn't much opportunity here.

    Pros

    Boecore does a great job looking out for its employees. As an apprentice, I was offered great pay and later benefits. Executives know the names of their employees and keep track of how they are performing. Boecore has been a great company to work for and I consider a privilege to do so.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you are doing. Boecore is by and large one of the best small companies to work for in Colorado Springs.

    I have been working at Boecore full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They truly Care about their employees. They participate in community volunteer events. Bagel Friday (Corporate managers bring bagels to your place of work 1 Friday a month to talk to and catch up, make sure everything is going well) Robust benefit package. Technical working groups. Flex time work weeks. Employee Recognition Event in December (they fly in all employees and their families from across the country to attend event)

    Cons

    I have not had a bad experience with Boecore thus far. They have shown inexperience at times with my particular contract, travel and security, but they are willing to learn and quick to adapt.
