I worked at SRC full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

There are some great engineering challenges to work on at this company, and front-line management is great. Lots of autonomy in your job, pay and benefits are first rate. Great co-workers at the Syracuse location, opportunity is there to learn a lot of valuable skills.

Cons

The overhead of the company is getting too great, and this is going to hurt them going forward as they will be progressively less competitive. For a small company, they have a byzantine organizational chart with layers and layers of "vice president"-type jobs and "directors" etc. These "VPs" etc. are not at all strategic thinkers, they do not add value. The individual contributors and their immediate supervisors make the company work, along with a few of the "directors" or business area leaders that have very strong personal connections with $ men in the US govt.

Advice to Management

The Board is too local, too "clubby" and too status quo. At least half of them should be replaced with outsiders who are visionaries that know how to lead and grow a company in the defense business (people like Norm Augustine) or the technology business (pick your visionary Silicon Valley leader). After making these changes to the board, the company should hire a CEO with vision, a decisive leader in the mold of Bob Behler whom the current board regrettably dismissed.

    Pros

    Really good people who are focused on the same mission- help keep America safe and strong by protecting its people, environment and way of life.

    Benefits are really good at SRC. Low premium costs on medical/ dental/ vision, etc. Great vacation/ holiday/ sick policies.

    Employees support and help each other!

    Cons

    I really can not think of any major cons. This site required 20 words so I guess I would just fill up this box with words. :)

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose site of the Corporate mission/ objectives.
