Questionable Ethics and Scapegoating
Contracts Administrator (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VAJanuary 10, 2019
This was the worst experience. Finding financial discrepancies in the contracts was punished. Manager completely disinterested in any concerns or long-term issues in contracts. The culture was one of complete compliance in that a "team player" meant you kept your head down and your mouth shut. Any valid concerns regarding procedures or questionable ethics were dismissed and constituted shifty methods to eliminate positions so that those who voiced such concerns were left without work, aka "laid off." Managers were interested only in the bottom line, and had no interest in working with their subordinates to generate a fair and equitable culture, especially for women who's served as program managers or dealt with contracts, and who were expected to keep quiet.
Pros
pay was adequate although not equitable to work conducted
Cons
atrocious management, no communication, discrimination

There is a "clique" feeling within the Vencore group (which is now Perspecta)
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Northern VaNovember 29, 2018
If you are different in any way, different location in the US, different ethnicity, different accent, you will be an outsider. If you don't "kiss the ring" of the leader, you will be an outsider. And, if you don't receive the leader's approval, even when you try to transfer to another job, the group will pass on bad recommendations about you. The term "I'll pass" is used when they don't want you in the group.
Pros
Good and marketably fair benefits.
Cons
Their Culture

The team was focused in the assigned task.
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Chantilly, VANovember 25, 2018
There was not a great effort to give the team a clear view into the customers work environment, this made it hard to be sure we were correctly focused.

Great Starter Company
Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee) –  Chantilly, VASeptember 4, 2018
Very relaxed working environment. Depending on the contract you are working, the managers can be good to great. Lots of talk, not to much action. Managers love to solicit feedback, and don't act on it.

Do not work here
SatCom Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Chantilly, VAAugust 18, 2018
Only work here if you have no other choice. They will take away your benefits and fire you the first chance they get. They don't care about your career advancement either. They will just move you from project to project to make money. That is their only goal.
Pros
nothing

everything

constant salary cuts
ULLS-A(E) Field Service Enginee (Former Employee) –  OverseasAugust 6, 2018
Was told contract lost money and salary was cut in half... I quit and was hired on by sister company who hired me for $20,000 more per year on the exact same contract from the same customer! This was not the first salary cut, salary seemed to decrease by tens of thousands over the course of 5 years at Vencore/QinetiQ-NA/Westar.
Pros
Self-managed for most part.
Cons
poor upper level management after last merger with SI Corporation

Software Test Engineer (Current Employee) –  Huntsville, ALMay 23, 2018
I'm a contractor and really don't know anyone at Vencore. My current boss thinks my son is a girl. He always asks how "she" is doing. Thats how much they know about me.

System Administrator (Current Employee) –  Laurel, MDApril 3, 2018
Most of the people stay to themselves. The people that do go out of their way to talk to others are very helpful. Hardest part of the job is to get people to follow newly implemented procedures.
