I heard from someone at SCIS there was a Reduction in Force at SCIS. Might be time to diligently look for other employment if your are at this contractor.
That might be why they didn’t take the Care Act which has been used by Perspecta for 3+ weeks, even though they’re supposedly “still waiting for Care Act approval.” Under the Care Act a company has to promise the gov they’ll keep people employed at their same status after the emergency. So much for “transparency.”
Hummmm is this a recent report from Gary Gnu or maybe old info from the NBIB transition?
Not sure what you are talking about or Gary Gnu. There was apparently some sort of RIF yesterday. Maybe some SCIS people can verify?
Just a fun reference to muppet Gary Gnu who has a slogan of no news is good news with Gary Gnu.
Wasn’t sure your post was recent news or old news. Either way it wouldn’t be good news.
Apparently contract companies aren’t aware there are no secrets in this business. If they do a 4 person RIF in PA then CA knows about it within 4 hours at the most. That also crosses company lines because we’ve all worked together at some point and are still very much in touch. When GDIT went down I received daily play by plays and I’ve never worked for GDIT. Most of us have been around way too long and can read every move made by mgt. We hope for the best but quiet corporate wranglings aren’t pointing to that.
Aint that the truth RB22? There are probably no more than 4 degrees of separation in this career field.
I work at SCIS, I haven’t heard this rumor yet How reputable is your source?
Sources. After USIS a lot stayed in the field and went to other contractors. We stay in touch. It was a mid level manager that knows my manager. It was a few reviewers. When I called someone I know that is in review they confirmed it because they were one of them. I guess it’s not the first lay off in review this year. Apparently there have been multiple RIFS there in different areas. Not sure if there are any investigators but I guess they could be next. That’s the word that FI are next.
The info came straight from the mouth of a laid off person. The lay off occurred prior to the corporate email yet there was no mention of it in the email.
There was a RIF again here. Not sure how many people laid off, but several departments were affected and most employees have been working reduced hours for several months. Things aren’t looking good for sure, no matter how much smoke the company blows up our a$$es.
I also work at SCIS. There was confirmed layoffs again Thursday. I know 2 people affected in different departments and heard all departments affected. They just aren’t being honest with us as a company that touts having open communication and transparency…
So disappointed to read such information. Did SCIS have their DCSA review?
Doug sent out his usual “hoorah” emails last week and didn’t mention a thing!
I edited - next week might bring improvement
I feel like we are going to be the next company to go down…reminiscent of GDIT. Where is the work they keep promising from the CBP and Raspberry Beret contracts? Why are we all all still waiting for those clearances when other companies have gotten cleared for those contracts in a few weeks? I feel like they are blatantly lying to us and keeping us in the dark.
Sorry for the people who were laid off. I don’t see the future in this business unless you work for the feds and I’m not even sure how solid their positions may be. I know I wake up everyday prepared for the call that I’m getting laid off and I feel I’m pretty busy. I wish everyone well. It’s already been one of the craziest years ever.
That’s hard to gauge. 1st The field is not fully open; 2nd if SCIS is #2, work will go elsewhere first or however that weird distribution goes; and 3rd why would such effort go into equipping the field?
I’m quite familiar with the lack of transparency. I not sure transparency is possible with the current management - I do know if transparency was a security clearance SCIS would be denied one.
I’m looking beyond the company and to the contract - content to support that. If the company improves all the better. I’ve interviewed far too many Subjects who “follow the contract” with their work history to think contract work is not possible if the company ship goes down. I don’t believe DCSA or the others can handle all the work in house so contractors will have a lifeline somewhere.
Another post declared Contract companies are no more in the very short future? Not sure about the validity of that.
