MCT Specialist (Former Employee) – Bagrām – July 11, 2018
I enjoyed working for Vectrus, unfortunately due to the main contractor company took over the mission I was working, I had to transition. Vectrus had a very family oriented atmosphere and they had great benefits and incentives. I would like to work for them again in the future.
Can't complain I was giving the opportunity to work for this great company so I have no issues. Currently working in the Turn –In section Camp Buehring, Kuwait. Position as Supply Tech.

Designated according to material, equipment, or product stored. Move or transports material or supplies to other departments, using Pallet Jack, Forklift or industrial truck.

GENERAL CLERK III (Former Employee) – Fort Bragg, NC – June 25, 2018

Network Engineer 4 (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – June 23, 2018
First off, you start off with only 2 weeks vacation. Couple this that as a network engineer, you are constantly monitored by your Cisco Jabber status. The building was a dump, and prepare to find an office chair out of the broken pile, along with purchasing your own office garbage can. Do not make plans for the weekend as you are likely to be told you need to work the weekends you are not on call supporting upgrades. Think you can flex your time, think again. They consider your core hours as being worked Monday to Friday. Your weekend hours over 40 are a gift to the company. Turnover is great on this contract.
Storage Engineer/Technical Lead (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – June 7, 2018
This is not entirely a good reflection of what corporate employment might be at Vectrus. I worked on a government contract that Vectrus had bid and won on so I wasn't a full blown corporate employee. There was no career path, no raises, no bonuses or company events that I could participate in. I was simply and incumbent from the previous contract.

Service Delivery Manager, Cyber Security (CS) (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – June 4, 2018
Excellent Program Management on the contract. Really enjoy my time working on the ITSM team. The company helped our entire team grow professionally. Great people, great leadership. Great culture. Hope to continue working with the Vectrus team now and in the future.
Systems Engineer II (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – June 1, 2018
GOV contracting in general is not a very secure line of work. That and continuing efforts to reduce costs made the contract I worked for Vectrus extremely unfulfilling with no work/life balance at all. This was not due to Vectrus however. Most managers are willing to listen but too many seemed to feel their way was the only way, whether or not they had any experience in the subject at hand. There are certainly some very good people at Vectrus.
Some depts were like family away from home, some were not
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Military base – May 31, 2018
I enjoyed my position as a fuel accountant on Vectrus contract. It was like we were a family. The management knew what was going on at all times, although theybwere not micromanagers. However the management with the admin assistant position, in security, was not so much. The manager of my section was young, inexperienced and was a micromanager. The manager over him did not seem to help him to learn to me a leader or a manager.
Overseas work, easy to travel
Although you work out the full yearly contract, they don't want to pay unemployment.
It's a place where you keep your head down and work.
Video Teleconference Technician (Current Employee) – Al Asimah – May 18, 2018
The IT department is very large. There are a lot of moving parts, which causes a lack of understanding amongst the section. The management is out of touch and you do not hear from them until something goes wrong. They offer no solutions, just gripes and fell to listen to any explanations.
Good company, caustic customer due to poor contract.
Chief Network Engineer (Current Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – May 11, 2018
The contract was the poison pill from the onset. We did all that we could but the vagaries in the contract concerning SLRs and the method of setting and measuring deliverables, doomed the effort to perpetual conflict.
Material Expeditor (Former Employee) – Camp Arifjan – April 25, 2018
Opportunities to get cross-training. Descent pay, benefits and bonuses. Management made the experience stressful, bad management practices deflated employee's morale and caused stress. Some of bad management habits that were experienced were bullying, poor communication, no trust, disorganization and indecision, not ‘Walking the Talk’, discourtesy, politics and inequity, favoritism, avoidance, pride and even lying.
Good pay, benefits, end of contract bonuses.
Management, too many hours, no opportunities for promotions (most areas)
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) – Fort Benning, GA – April 20, 2018
Vectrus was a great place to work. the Leadership Staff were fair and practical. Our fast-paced work environment made for a busy day. There was a constant requirement for excellence which pushed the employees to be better all around.
Great Company to work for.
Difficulty in removing undesirable workers due to Union involvement.
