    I worked at SAIC full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, customer oriented. Telecommuting encouraged in past.

    Cons

    Layoffs of long-term, loyal employees. Upper management disconnected from workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink your strategy to save costs. Getting rid of most people who had more than 20 years at the company was a huge mistake. It's not all about money.

    Pros

    Good benefits and lots of opportunities to expand your skill set.

    Cons

    Working and knowing the local HQ folks in DC was a big benefit but if you were away from center stage it was hard to position yourself for advancement as the smaller office was overrun by nepotism. Family members, high school friends and long time buddies got the bigger benefits if you were an outsider and not from the local area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break up the small town mentality, good ol boy system and allow for new insights and new blood to enter into management and minimize the group think process.

    I worked at SAIC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Patient management and teams that are willing to work with employees to increase their skill base
    -Got to work on a wide array of different projects while learning different software and systems
    -Free coffee in kitchens
    -Good size teams that are able to support their members
    -Decent length of contracts so you have enough time to get things done right

    Cons

    -Like most places some managers could be bad and would either micro manage or neglect aspects of a project
    -Salary could have been better
    -Interns are under utilized until they start full time work.
    -One project I worked on had too much complexity in it's architecture and had a stagnant atmosphere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Interns want more real world work and can do more for the company than you normally realize.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great pay. They are working a lot harder to keep seasoned employees that lose coverage to make sure that they are covered somewhere else.

    Cons

    Promotions are slow, and we just lost our commuter incentive for taking public transportation. :(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a little more time to listen to those on the front lines. What you hear from management may not be what is reality

    Current Contractor - Firewall Infrastructure Security Administrator in Smyrna, GA
    Current Contractor - Firewall Infrastructure Security Administrator in Smyrna, GA

    I have been working at SAIC as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Under SAIC I worked for the DCMA. The work was exciting and always challenging. working at the customer site in GA, provided a wonderful opportunity to increase my skill sets and knowledge base. The office environment was full of characters which there was never a dull moment both good or bad. There was plenty of room for professional growth.

    Cons

    Working at the customer site was not under the best conditions. From stuck elevators, broken security access policies to broken air conditioners/heating, there was always something wrong.

    The customer was never satisfied and was always finding away to impose new requirements almost monthly if not weekly in some cases. The Customer would talk bad about employees, and make fun of some of the employees. The customer in many cases caused failures, violated their own policies and would turn around and say that they are paying us to fix it.

    The workload was also not equally compensated. A team of 22 individuals was handling a customer requirement which a team of 50 was needed. This caused many people to work overtime, on their days off, and many times simply because the customer demanded it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    SAIC Management should keep a close eye on scope creep, they should also remind the customer that some of the services they were demanding were not in the contract.

    The onsite PM should hold more employees accountable for their action or in many case lack their of.

    Pros

    Human resources, payroll, travel services and other administrative roles are staffed with dedicated individuals.
    Reliable raises (at certain salary levels) for good performance.
    Training and College programs are well established (depending on the contract)
    Employees at all levels are professionals in attitudes and in their roles.

    Cons

    Satellite facilities are not as well maintained, since there are MANY facilities everywhere.
