    I have been working at Vencore full-time

    Pros

    Vencore places a high value on work-life balance. We work hard but in return, the company offers a flexible environment. Leadership changes made over the last few years have been positive and the result is a company where everyone is moving in the same direction...compatible goals among the various organizations.

    Cons

    The growing pains over the last few years following the merger have been hard but things are moving in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course!

    Good working relationship with our Government partners. Everyone works as a team to get the job done. Great cross-functional teamwork in CFO organization. Very good work schedule flexibility.

    Cons

    Being audited by four different DCAA Offices at the same time can make the work volume intense, but its never boring!

    I worked at Vencore full-time

    Pros

    Good work/life balance for off-site contractors.

    Cons

    Not a good work/life balance for on-site contractors. Severely limited or no mentor-ship and career development programs within company. Benefits for employees are very poor and worsen every year.

    Advice to Management

    Survey the work environment from satellite teams/groups to the Corporate work environments and compare the climates.

    401k plan

    Make your employees priority # 1 and they may want to stick around.

    I worked at Vencore full-time

    Pros

    - Decent pay and benefits
    - It's employment

    Cons

    - Work/life balance disruptive. Manager would constantly call/text on the weekend to tell you about things like trainings due next week. They would never come talk to you face to face during work hours, though.
    - Saw my manager a total of 2 hours over my 18 month employment
    - Managers don't ensure their employees are treated fairly
    - Manager was very judgmental and never let me explain my side for anything, immediately and always took the customer's complaint as gospel. If you have no way of fixing it, they don't care. They talk at you, not to you.
    - Poor morale across the board

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are valuable. The knowledge they hold, their happiness and well being. They can't fix something that isn't actually happening.

    Pros

    Vencore Labs performs interesting research and advanced consulting projects for high-tech customers mostly in the government / defense industry. Technical colleagues are creative and talented.

    Cons

    The business model is the typical consulting model of time sold which can create pressure for technical staff to get onto the next project.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be creative in finding ways to invest in the technical staff to ensure that their skills stay up-to-date.
