    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

    A growing company without the growing pains! For every type of position I've wanted to hold my management continues to be supportive and encouraging. And this company doesn't just talk the talk - it walks the walk. It invests in me as much as I invest in it... and I am a vested employee!

    Cons

    None that stand out -policies continue to evolve.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reward employees for their accomplishments.

    Pros

    Strong CEO -- Mac Curtis is the best CEO I've worked for it the last 30 years. He demands results, but is compassionate and cares about his employees.
    I am treated with respect by my coworkers. People aren't pointing fingers and blaming others. The mentality of the majority of the employees and management is, "How do we work together to make this better?"
    My opinions and ideas are valued by my manager and the leadership team. I feel valued.

    Cons

    Sometimes, because everyone's ideas and opinions are valued, I wish someone would just hurry up and make a decision.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value your employees and their ideas.

    Pros

    Great culture, flexible work environment. Management cares for employees and demonstrates genuine interest in the growth and well being of everyone. Hard working and smart people that are able to achieve great successes.

    Cons

    No matter how good you are, there is always room for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the staff. Also keep the the town halls and employee engagement activities going. Not only they greatly increase employee morale but also boost confidence and keeps us aware of current and future initiatives.

    and of course, more PTO always helps :)

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

    Pros

    There are plenty of companies in this area with open positions so you can leave.

    Cons

    Procurement department is broken. Management treats employees like idiots and openly criticizes, attacks, and dehumanizes. Never have I ever worked in a Gov. contracting job where management is allowed to police, lunch breaks, bathroom, personal phone calls and workspace but it happens here. HR is aware of the issues since so many people are leaving but nothing changes if anything it has gotten worse.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair in your criticism and reviews and keep it professional. Just because you personally don't like the choices others make does not mean it is wrong or against company policy. If you continue this path I can only assume that HR and Legal resources will be engaged for issue resolution.

    I worked at Vencore full-time

    Pros

    Never Found any Pros within company.

    Cons

    Vencore has not yet realized they are no longer Lockheed Martin. They went from Lockheed Martin to the SI to Vencore and they still think they can run the organization like Lockheed Martin. Management was inexperienced and showed no ethical value or commitment. Everyone who got promoted was legacy LM.

    Advice to Management

    Hire experienced knowledgeable management and fix what you know is broken.
