Who knows what they're doing
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  New Orleans, LAOctober 26, 2018
After changing from one company to another, we're told that this change is "permanent". However, many employees complain the Contractors under Perspecta are paid better with more growth potential.

Challenging work vital to National Security
Background Investigator (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXOctober 21, 2018
Like every new job, there are challenges and this job is no different. After a training/coaching period you may feel like you are in a bubble. But I have found that everyone in my chain of command will answer any question and are always willing to offer suggestions. You must have enough integrity to work interdependently and 8 hours a day.
Pros
Work from home/independently
Cons
All work has a fixed amount of time allotted, some cases use more than what's allotted.

Vencore, now Perspecta
Information Systems Security Manager (Current Employee) –  AlabamaOctober 17, 2018
I have worked with the same company for over 13 years. Perspecta being the newest name of the company.

My management team is great. They like for their employees to exceed and excel in their positions.

Providing great customer service is key to longevity with any company and Perspecta is no different. I love the organization that I support and hope to remain with this company and retire in 6 years.
Pros
Great management, benefits and fair compensation.
Cons
None

Mismanaged by Private Equity Bankers
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Stafford, VAOctober 15, 2018
The positive reviews on this company are not accurate. The company is being mismanaged by a Private Equity Investment firm that has no experience in the business domains where Perspecta (formally Vencore) is active. In addition the person serving as Perspecta’s president is an employee of Veritas Capital not Perspecta. According to the Presidents resume he lacks the experience managing an organization the size of Perspecta. Perspecta employees are subject to almost yearly cuts in pay and benefits. In some cases the pay cuts can be as high as 30%. Renewing an option year on a contract or being moved to another contract are events that result in employee pay cuts. Staff reductions are common place. Perspecta management positions are exclusively filled by retired military personnel as a result there is no upward mobility for college educated professional employees. A portion of the management is retired in place, their only concern is drawing a pay check in addition to their government retirement check and provide no value add to the organization. Management takes great pride in reminding employees of the corporate training policy. Vencor’s training policy was “An employee can have all the training the employee wants as long as the training is outside regular business hours and the employee pays all expenses associated with the training”. I assume the company maintains the same policies after the name change. Perspecta’s business model is to supply bodies to government service contracts and skim a percentage of the pay off the top for company profit. With this type of business  more... model it would be in Perspecta’s best interest to have a highly educated and motivated work force. Perspecta’s training policy is self-defeating. Finally, I should mention that some of Perspecta’s managers have a serious ethics issue. If a Management decision is questionable from an Ethics standpoint expect finger pointing by management if the action is noticed by the customer or higher authorities in the Perspecta management chain.  less
Pros
None.
Cons
Management lacks Ethics. President is very arrogant and condescending.

Very laid back workplace.
Service Desk Associate (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CASeptember 28, 2018

You work alone
Background Investigator (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXSeptember 20, 2018
The company sets you up to fail. The company expects you to produce 60 hours of work in a 40 hour work week. If you request overtime, you are expected then to do over 60 hours of work in that amount of time. The company has unrealistic goals for you. And if you think you are going to have a flexible schedule, think again. You will be stuck at your computer until the late hours of the night. You will not see your family even if you are under the same roof. You also will not have a social life. The company does not support their employees and their well being.

Hard pass
Receptionist (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXSeptember 19, 2018
If you like a dead end job with no advancement and the possibility that you will have to train underlings and then eventually get fired, then apply here. Management is garbage. Pay is garbage. Morale is the whole dumpster truck of garbage.

Perspecta has growing pains
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Herndon, VASeptember 16, 2018
Out department is not the headliner thus is not getting the tools or resources required to make it a suitable place to work. Reports should be automated, too much repetition of data entry. Overall in need of improvements.
Cons
Lack of adequate resources to perform the work. Lack of automation and state of the art tools

Stay Away
Special Investigator (Former Employee) –  Reston, VASeptember 10, 2018
This company is not for individuals married, or with kids. You pretty much are a slave to the job. Once you leave training you're on your own in every way shape and form.
Pros
You get health benefits and a paycheck
Cons
Stressful, Deadlines are unrealistic, Low pay

Backgrounds Investigator (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GASeptember 9, 2018
The pay is decent and the supervisors/coworkers are helpful. Th more time and effort you put into getting things done and completed will prove to be more helpful at the end of the day.

Over worked underpaid
Clerk (Current Employee) –  Hingham, MASeptember 7, 2018
First off, it's sad that there is actually a job posting that says room for growth in the Hingham location. That is 100% not the truth. You come in at entry-level and you're staying there. Over worked, underpaid. You could have the BEST review or the WORST and there is or never will be raises. If you bring up this topic you'll get the response "if you don't like it, leave" Your manager will actually sit in your review tell you how great of an employee you are but keep on encouraging you to go look for a new job. Pretty sad that they don't even fight to keep their best employees. Management will also actually reprimand employees on the floor for others to hear. Alot of petty behavior as well
The ONLY good thing in this location is flexible schedule, but that won't pay the bills!

if you want to keep your sanity..keep scrolling!
