Talent Acquisition Partner III (Contract) (Former Employee) –  Louisville, COJuly 9, 2017
It was an interesting job, based on the actual technology, which for me is the first consideration. It's a nice work environment with friendly people.

The systems are a bit bulky, but overall it's a good place to work.
Pros
Friendly people, ice cream socials, great technology
Cons
Lotus notes, Workday ATS

Backward Technology Company
Production Technician (Former Employee) –  Sparks, NVJune 28, 2017
SNC is allegedly an Equal Opportunity Employer. I found this not to be the case. SNC is allegedly an advanced technology company. I found this not to be the case. Frequently behind schedule on deliveries. using frequently defective housings and boards from suppliers, and providing obsolete useless training to employees, serves as an indication to all prospective applicants that SNC is not a company you want to work for.
Pros
Free food on Wednesdays
Cons
Low IQ assignments; Useless training;

Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Moody AFB, GAJune 2, 2017
Always another problem to be solved with few parts and marginal funding. Fun place to work that is always changing and adapting. Work life balance is a very real struggle.

Structures (Former Employee) –  ColoradoApril 26, 2017
SNC is aggressively fighting for their place as a top DOD contractor. They work hard to acquire top talent and it's that talent that gets the job done and makes SNC look good.
Pros
High pay, good benefits, family first atmosphere
Cons
Blurry lines between job descriptions, i.e. many duties being delagated down a level is the norm

Not the greatest
Technician (Current Employee) –  Hurlburt Field, FLJanuary 11, 2017
SNC is a ok company. Benefits are good. It is better to be deployed then to be working at home station. Op's tempo at home is fly fly fly!! Consant tdy's. Its almost like being active duty again. The Field Manager and Program Manager really don't care about their people. The DOM and Asst DOM are great people to work for! No formal training!
Pros
A good 401k
Cons
Training, Pay, Promotions, time off after deployment, low ball your pay

Adaptable and flexible environment which promotes collaboration
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  NevadaDecember 1, 2016
This was by-far the best job that I have had. I left on good terms and hope somehow to find another position with this company.

These aren't the pillars of their business, but my words to describe SNC are: generous, grateful, giving. The owners are incredible people and you don't have to look far to find someone else to tell you the same! They genuinely care for the well-being of their employees. Happy people work harder.

SNC is committed to providing excellence to it's customers and it isn't hard to find a segment of the business that is providing superior sustained performance with it's deliverables, communication with the customer and involvement with small business partners. They have the formula for success!
Pros
Atmosphere, camaraderie, leadership, communication
Cons
Lower starting wage

Tool Control Specialist (Former Employee) –  Centennial, CONovember 12, 2016
I worked at SNC on a 12 month contract to setup and run their tool control program. The hours were good as overtime was more than available during my time.

There was minimal oversight in my department, but watching other departments structure showed massive oversight by project and floor managers.
