Scitor Corporation derives its name from a Latin word meaning "to seek to know." The name reflects one of the basic principles of the company: Scitor employees aggressively seek to expand their knowledge in the pursuit of solving customer needs in a rapidly changing world. The "long I" in the Scitor logo shows the emphasis on providing information in the satisfaction of customer needs. Our ultimate goal is to build enduring partnerships with satisfied customers.
Scitor is a company that is completely committed to customer satisfaction. Scitor's continued success will depend entirely on one simple, but demanding action: working hard to make our customers successful.
Our success is the result of the mutual trust and commitment that has evolved between the company, our people and our customers. This culture, based on trust, is created and sustained by having strong core values, hiring exceptional people, challenging them, minimizing bureaucracy and doing whatever it takes to satisfy the customer.
