Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Vencore full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Flex-time.
40 hour work weeks.
The people are all very easy to work with and get along with.

Cons

Upper management has very little idea of how everything works at the lower levels.

Very low morale.

Benefits are cut every year: health insurance, vacation days, etc.

Upper management is not transparent about negative issues, for example:
- Claimed healthcare costs were going to increase 9% due to Affordable Care Act; after calculating new healthcare costs with previous ones, my one person increase was around 33%. Two person and family plans increased by even more.

Performance is based on a 4 category template which does not apply well to employees who work a program.

Very hard to get promoted due to current issues with defense industry as well as the fact that the company is top heavy.

Tuition reimbursement is capped around $5,000, which only covers one graduate class a year.

No training of any sort.

Lots of money was spent this year on building renovations despite the intent to sell the building next year.

5 days of sick leave are offered every year; however, use of them reflects negatively in performance review.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees, some of them have pretty decent ideas.

    I worked at Vencore full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule.
    Excellent Mission
    Great relationship with customers
    The company has a good vision for growth for the next few years

    Cons

    Company is still new after breaking away from Lockheed Martin and owned by a company that wants to sell them, so there are a lot of changes happening - it does not mean they are bad changes.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you describe to the work force why the changes are being implemented - and don't think that the employees don't know you are posturing for a sale.
