    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Vectrus full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good co-workers and environment for the most part. Pay and benefits are average. A good opportunity for those who wish to work in the Middle East.

    Cons

    Poor corporate management and no resource planning--perpetually understaffed, inefficient procedures, and disdain for loyal, longer term employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to resourcing needs and stop hiring high paid VPs. You need boots on the ground. Also, a former position at IBM does not guarantee competence or high performance. All advancement should be on merit alone. Develop and promote from within.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Vectrus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    On base supporting the USAF. Even with a bad company, and poor management, supporting the USAF is a great mission.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Upper level management will do everything possible to distance themselves from a decision and then throw you under the bus when you step up and make the decision for them. Vectrus can’t even figure out how to bill for work that is completed and then constantly look to cut positions to overcome the shortfall.

    Advice to Management

    Hire actual leaders for important manager positions not drinking buddies. The lack of actual experience performing the maintenance in a military environment as we are contracted to do is appalling.

    I have been working at Vectrus full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Publicaly traded company, overall benefits, lots of possibilities, team environment, work incentives

    Cons

    Yearly reviews need to include Upward and anonymous feedback, where our leaders receive feedback from everyone not just from management to have more of a perspective of company culture and how our managers/directors/supervisors can be more effective and improve - great leadership doesn't happen overnight it's through mistakes and modesty

    Advice to Management

    Communication - Quarterly All Hands Meetings with CEO - His Vision for the company, goals, and overall company progress, etc.

    I worked at Vectrus full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of the people there are worth knowing.

    Cons

    Executives are entitled and EXTREMELY difficult to work with - especially the ones in Alexandria, VA. Vectrus is profit driven and could care less about their employees. Benefits are terrible. Insurance is high deductible and covers nothing! No room for advancement unless your a man and can kiss butt. Will make you holidays - yes in the headquarters office.

    Advice to Management

    Board of Directors need to replace all of the executive staff - what have they really done for the company except tear it apart!

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

    Pros

    Very relaxing environment as far as projects and works concerned and very willing management to listen and respond

    Cons

    A little improvement in different departments working relationships will make big differences. All departments should not be given equal weight

    Advice to Management

    Improvement in departments working relationships and re-evaluating of weights of each can make big differences in jobs and works results and better outcomes from some of hard working managers

    Pros

    Senior Leadership values growth of the company and employee wellness and satisfaction. This belief is shown daily via communications, on-going training of managers and employees and internal employee events. Management hires employees they believe are qualified and let's them fly. Oversight and communication are an integral part of allowing people to perform their job duties. However, your knowledge, experience...

    Cons

    On-boarding was a little fuzzy for me. Use of the travel and expense reporting web site would have been helpful for me.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow the company using talented staff.
