Pros

Once you're part of the company, they take care of their own. Your managers will work with you to help advance your career while providing excellent service to the client at the same time. Sick leave is separate from vacation, the work schedules are flexible, a team atmosphere is ever present, and advancement is almost automatic. Oh yeah, AND they helped pay for my master's degree. Also, when it comes to ethics, they really mean it. It's not the type of company that sacrifices integrity for the bottom line. There's no backstabbing and short-changing going on.

Cons

The benefits are so comfy that you might get complacent in your career path and spend years and years in the comfortable rather than challenging job. They're subject almost entirely to government contracts so if a contract is lost or the government cuts the budget, then you might be on the losing side of that bargain.

    I have been working at SAIC-Frederick full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A decent holiday/vacation bundle. Other than that, SAIC doesn't offer anything in the way of actual benefits.

    Cons

    initiative is punished. If one goes out of their way to solve a problem, and it is not done 100% to the bosses' standards, then that employee is punished, and ridden for a while.
    The management seems to not understand what the employees do, and have no idea how to help empower them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn your employees names, and understand what their job entails.

    Also, stop lying about 'ethics' and other catch phrases, when clearly that is not what the company follows in any way.
