    Company splits are never fun, but this one was managed well.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSome of the greatest peers and coworkers anywhere. There remains some of the entrepreneurial roots and that is the part that always made SAIC distinct.

    ConsSetting a new culture after a split will take time and there is a human toll in the uncertainty. The old SAIC is being slowly drummed out of existence and within 3 years or less, it will be just another big corporation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that without people, your company is worthless. Demoting people and affecting their pay to achieve targets while keeping the most senior leaders whole on their compensation is telling.

    A great company if you understand the business model - consultants have to be under contract at all times.

    Senior Engineer (Former Employee) Idaho Falls, ID

    ProsGood pay and benefits. The quality of work depended mainly on the individual contract, but that is true of all consulting work. I enjoyed my co-workers. Good opportunities to transfer to other locations.

    ConsTo many re-organizations and management changes. The company was not as good after going public. Some of the problems can be attributed to the changes in government contracting methods and philosophies that made it more difficult to operate this type of business.

    It's all about the bottom line $$$$.

    Systems Engineer (Former Employee) Fort Bliss, TX

    ProsWhen it used to be an employee owned company it was great. On the flip side they do have good benefits excellent tuition reimbursement and if your motivated they have an SAIC University,

    ConsPlenty of lip service and no follow thru. Sadly several of my coworkers that had 15 20 25 years were let go after the company split.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour employees are the backbone of the company. Without them SAIC doesn't exist. I understand that employees are replaceable however talent and integrity are not. Warm bodies will get the job done. But employees with quality and integrity will get it done right the first time.

    SAIC...old and New

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company is in the process of reinventing itself so that there are opportunities to work new customers, new business processes.

    ConsI was a long-term employee at SAIC before the company split. When the company split into SAIC and Leidos my program went to Leidos. Unfortunately, the contract underwent a severe contraction and I was laid off. I was picked up by SAIC after two weeks, but when I rejoined SAIC my long-term experience did not count for anything!
