    Overall a very positive experience. Lay-off process needs to be addressed as well as internal transfers.

    I worked at SAIC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Family friendly. Time off as needed was never an issue. Lower management looked out for their people as best they could.

    Cons

    Poor communication between management and employees. Career path is convoluted at best. Told several times if I received a particular certification it would boost my career only to have the position taken away and given to a new hire. Highly driven by profit margins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay in touch with your people.

    I worked at SAIC

    Pros

    The company embraces diversity and offers opportunities for committed employees. There are a lot of interesting and challenging projects going on throughout the company and it's relatively easy to move around within the company. The people at SAIC are bright and work hard. Because SAIC values its people, they will try to take care of the employees during the "down times": help with placement, etc. Education and training assistance is also great.

    Cons

    One thing they lack is a pension program, but that's probably true for most other similar companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep training the employees.
