I worked at SAIC-Frederick full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

interesting projects with reasonably salary schedules. Middle management usually friendly but without much power to make things better.

Cons

discoveries and other advances are typically not owned by the SAIC employee as the contract typically puts nih staff in the driver's seat with these issues

Advice to ManagementAdvice

employees are the most valuable part of the company

    Pros

    Great resources to do great work.
    Great scientific knowledge base.
    Good but not great benefits

    Cons

    Top heavy with minimal scientific background and NO interactions with bench scientists.
    No chance for professional growth at all unless you are a YES man/woman.
    No or very low annual raises. No raise for last 3 yrs.
    Ever since the CEO left couple of years ago, the company went downhill very rapidly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to become employee friendly.
    You still have a number very knowledgeable scientists left with more years to contribute.
    Everyone is afraid to talk freely because of your "bully" attitude.
