    I have been working at SAIC-Frederick full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Local. No commuting required. Government contractor, so follows government regulations and get general government style benefits. Because it is local and basic science, the opportunity for flex scheduling is great, and was excellent while my children were young. If you open your eyes and take advantage, there is a lot to be learned.

    Cons

    No bonus structure per se. No real career advancement system. While the good old boy network is fading, not much is effectively taking its place in a managerial way, ie there is still too much lower level cronyism and not enough good use of labor. That is optimal use of labor and skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forget the forest for a day or two and take a good look at the trees.

    Research Tech Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days - interviewed at SAIC-Frederick in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed at SAIC-Frederick in the fall of 2010. I received an interview for a research technician position via a staffing agency called Aerotek. The initial contact was through Aerotek and they worked with me to schedule the interview. SAIC-Frederick is within Ft. Detrick, and getting through sercurity at the gate was no trouble. Once there, I was greetly kindly by the secretary in the office and was guided to the office for my interview. Even though, they're located in a military base, the environment and interview was very casual. While, I did not decide to take the job because of the nature of the position, the people there were all friendly and helpful.

    Interview Questions
    • I was only asked about my previous experience in other laboratories, as described in my resume. I assume they only wanted to confirm that I can back up what I wrote on my resume.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because the next day I interviewed with another company which I liked more and was closer to home.
