    I have been working at Vencore full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A great environment if you enjoy what you do and love to work hard. Colleagues are dedicated, responsive and the mission is fantastic. Interesting customer base and great on-contract opportunities.

    Cons

    Not too many, would like to have a little more PTO and health benefits are expensive, but not sure that is the company's fault since they have gone up everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on new business opportunities in cyber and agile software development.

    Pros

    Family type atmosphere at Valley Forge Campus. Mission focused. Flexible work schedule and a great variety of work.

    Cons

    Communication is lacking. Company very focused on activities/opportunities/training in and around the Corporate Headquarters. Large operating locations ignored. Higher levels of career opportunities are all migrating to Company HQ, but that isn't necessary and sends a bad message.

    Advice to Management

    A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Don't forget about your long term steady performing contracts/locations and don't compromise their continued revenue streams in the pursuit of new opportunities. New contact awards isn't growth if your old ones are dying or put into jeopardy during to conflicts of interest.

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

    Pros

    It's a pretty relaxed environment with good people.

    Cons

    Salaries are low, no real option for upward growth. People who stand out aren't recognized above being given more work. Promotions are solely based on time with Vencore, so all you hard workers out there will be recognized for it at the same time as your lazy colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    You're not getting good hires because you aren't paying a living wage for the area. One of your contracts is only attracting young hires because they're still living with roommates or parents.

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

    Pros

    401k match is good.

    Cons

    No pay raises for 4 of last 7yrs. Benefits costs are not competitive with industry. Working remote from VA means that little is done to grow business in your location. Standard of Living has taken an estimated 12.5% hit since joining Vencore 7yrs ago, and thats just using Military annual pay increases for comparison. Absolutely ZERO training budget. CEO is the best at avoiding substantive answers to hard questions when asked, avoids any response that is meaningful. Veritas Equity Group are the private owners who care nothing about employees, only the bottom line. Do NOT pay overtime...expect "salaried" employees to work the first 10hrs of OT for free...not sure that's legal under the FLSA.

    Advice to Management

    Cost of living goes up every year, but you do nothing to reward senior employees (no merit increases), or, you give a pittance for a "merit bonus" if you give anything at all. Treat the "entire" employee base fairly...they're the ones who make you look good.

    Pros

    I love the team I work with and my immediate management structure. Very smart people and a supportive team atmosphere. Schedule flexibility that allows me to meet my family's needs.

    Cons

    Government contracting can be very stressful. Also the company has gone through a lot of transition.
