Archaic Leadership with No Vision
Manager (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJanuary 6, 2019
Company is 40+ years old and has grown very little.

Upper management is out of touch and too old to understand new business dynamics and the ever changing workplace.

Uncomfortable working environment. Buildings are old, full of mold and filthy carpeting.

Depressing and disappointing.

Steer Clear
Configuration Analyst (Former Employee) –  Dahlgren, VADecember 10, 2017
Poor management. Poor culture. Everyone walks on eggshells. There are many people looking to advance their status by cozying up to management and snitching on co-workers. It is just an overall horrible atmosphere.
Pros
Health insurance benefits were decent
Cons
Management, nepotism, culture

Great place to work until the contract ends.

SCCI is a great place to work. Very laid back atmosphere. Management does not micro-manage. Working with the people here is almost like having another family.

Want to feel like you're in high school? Join SCCI.
Engineer Support (Former Employee) –  Dahlgren, VAAugust 6, 2018
My advice to you is if you want to be successful at SCCI, cozy up with management and get on their side, because the entire dynamic here is exactly like high school. As soon as you differ from the main "clique," they will treat you different and frankly unfair from that point forward. Even if you are completely unprofessional and do not meet your deadlines, as long as you are in that special group, you are good to go. If you are outside of that group, don't bother reporting any of your concerns or questions to management -- they will not address it, and instead will alienate you even more. Be sure to embrace the gossip -- including management talking badly about other employees to you. Also embrace the constant feeling that everyone is talking about you as well, because most likely they are. If you are a fan of micromanagement, this place is for you. Not just micromanagement by your manager, which would at least make sense, but by EVERYONE around you. Want to feel like you're in high school? Join SCCI.

Worse than High School
Logistics (Former Employee) –  Dahlgren, VAAugust 7, 2018
I didn't have this many problems in high school. Management ranging from team leads to the Vice President of the company play favoritism to the utmost level. Will tell employees that there are no leadership roles to promote you to, but turn around the next day and promote their friends, who are not qualified, to be your new leader. They are not looking for worker bees. They are only looking for employees who will turn around and gossip. I have seen employees sit with their bare feet up on their desks, web surfing for their next phone while their customer asks them to do something, which the employee will turn around and pawn the task off on the next person. As long as you're in the click you will be good as gold, but if you're a worker, don't expect to ever advance in this company.
Pros
None
Cons
Management at all levels, favoritism, unprofessional

Excellent Team Culture
Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Dahlgren, VAMay 14, 2018
Over the past 20 plus years with SCCI, I experienced opportunities and challenges which provided significant professional growth for my career. My current technical team is accomplished and close knit. Training is available to the team and nothing motivates the team more than a good problem to investigate and solve. Like a university where all the departments are a little different, each of the programs within SCCI has its own team culture. The program manager empowers individuals to lead tasks and grow their skills. Task leadership is an opportunity that includes great responsibility, but team mates provide a sounding board for collaboration and are willing to lend a hand toward success. This company offers motivated and talented individuals the opportunity to excel in their chosen field. Some may view these types of opportunities as stressful, but growth comes from accepting challenges a little outside of your comfort zone. This company offers you the opportunity to grow and has mentors on staff to keep you on track. If you welcome a challenge and want to grow professionally, join SCCI.
Pros
Culture, Collaboration, Task Leadership

Favortism and poor management
Configuration Analyst - AEGIS (Current Employee) –  King George, VADecember 23, 2016
The work is enjoyable, you learn a lot in a short time and you are always busy. The days pass quickly. Management could use some additional training. Not very professional in the way they treat their employees. Almost all the employees are stressed every day other than the handful that the management considers their favorites. Very little praise and way too many complaints. The company does not believe in team work, they tell you to stay in your swim lane if you offer to help a co-worker. Leads are continuously making empty threats to employees and believe the way to get the job done is to treat everyone poorly, while micromanaging every second of their day. If an employee goes to Human Resources for help, the management retaliates against the employee and try to force them out. After two years, it is necessary to move on. You know that advancement is limited to those they like better than the others. Employees are all tired of being treated poorly, it is a daily conversation on breaks. Too bad, because the work is very fulfilling and there is so much of it.
Pros
Pay, benefits and always busy
Cons
Management (ALL from the team leads to the CEO)

Not a reliable company
CM (Former Employee) –  DahlgrenJuly 14, 2015
Management/Leads will tell you things you are not allow to do, wear, etc but will do it themselves, along with other coworkers. Management/Leads will not hesitate to talk about you, behind your back and are not friendly. They will make you fill very uncomfortable. The management/leads will tell what you what your work requirements are before you can obtain all the equipment and software needed, but you will figure out the reason your responsibilities are set up this way and demanding, because they do not want to do the responsibilities themselves.

Poorly Run...not much employee care
Training Documentation Specialist (Former Employee) –  Dahlgren, VAMarch 20, 2015
The good:
Benefits seems fair, and they were flexible with teleworking when weather was bad.

The bad:

Don't expect any consistent or legitimate training in your position. Five different people will tell you to do it five different ways, each criticizing you for not following their method.

Employees constantly feel their job is on the line, despite work effort. Managers are inexperienced and anxious, so many small mistake is highly scrutinized.

Managers gossip constantly about their employees and other managers - very unprofessional. Leads to a lack of trust among co-workers.

Personal emergencies are not taken seriously. Will not make any effort to let employees take care of emergencies without being penalized.

You're either in the tight core of "friendly" employees, or you're not - constantly on your toes and feeling unease.


Conclusion:
This company tried to be a solid company while continuing falling short. They are too eager, desperate and inexperienced to handle their employees and business. If anything doesn't go as plan, managers get frazzled and take it out on employees.
Pros
Benefits, teleworking
Cons
Managers, job security

Pros
Enjoyed learning some about fiber optics, assisting owners and training of new employees.
Cons
Owner decided to retire, therefore, I had to seek employment else where.

Government contract work. No career advancement available, only lateral mobility. Fair pay but low culture, visibility and work/life balance. Despite having a security clearance, it felt unsafe.

A place full of enthusiastic people!
AEGIS Technical Librarian (Former Employee) –  King George, VAMay 26, 2016
The work day is full of meetings and opportunities to learn new things. Never a dull moment! The co-workers are like family everyone is friendly and willing to help. The hardest part of the job is having to wear so many hats but you get a lot of experience.
Pros
Very good benefits!

Software Developer (Former Employee) –  King George, VAOctober 3, 2017
Great place to work for with many opportunities and room for advancement available. I started here and had a lot of skills to add to my resume. The only reason I left was to live closer to my now wife.

Disparate Management Group
Project CM /IT Analyst (Former Employee) –  King George, VAMarch 9, 2015
Not a very cohesive group of managers. They tend to lead in different and disparate ways and don't seem to follow a coherent, cohesive set of policies and styles. Managers tend to gossip about one another which can make employees feel disconnected and one-sided. HR is remotely involved in employee transactions and does not appear to help control management.
Pros
occasional lunches
Cons

Was hired for one position but, the manager would not allow me to conduct daily basic operations. Small company displaying very small sighted values. Would NOT recommend this company to others.
