  1. Great if you can make a large company "small"

    I worked at SAIC full-time

    Pros

    Large corporations depend on small office to get work done. The right manager can make the large company feel smaller and more personable. A division with strong, healthy leadership and growth is a joy to work for.

    Cons

    If you are in a division or office lacking strong leadership, you can become just a number in the corporate system. Lacking business development can mean you are only viable as long as the current contract exists.

  2. Good company

    Pros

    It was a good mix, got to do some state side traveling and they took care of you when you travel! Lots of hours

    Cons

    Not really any cons besides lots of layoffs, once I got the layoff notice I tried to get into new positions within the company but never worked out even though I have lots of experience

    Advice to Management

    No thanks

    Pros

    Large Company with ability to move within the company worldwide. Good salary. Travel support excellent.

    Cons

    Compnay split into Leidos and SAIC, concerns on strength of company in the future. Military contracts during periods of USG budget debate and military drawdowns.

    Pros

    Smart people, customer oriented. Telecommuting encouraged in past.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Getting up to speed with cutting edge technology. People are great. Stock is doing well.

    Workload is a bit heavy from the split and attrition, though it's settling into a manageable level

    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 Management

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