    Pros

    SAIC has many job openings and opportunities that can be hard to find in smaller companies. They will make a competitive offer get you into the company. Good people to work for, generally interested in seeing the customer gets the most. The offer nickle and dime training courses.

    Cons

    They have lost their original purpose... to work on behalf of the client. As a publicly traded company, its about the dollar now. Once they give you the nice salary to get into the company, then they heard you into the middle "satisfactory" or "outstanding" (3,4) levels on the performance scale, and then give you an increase just above the rate of inflation. The good people who work hard for the client are a dying breed in the company, and are slowly leaving the ranks. The don't offer serious professional development courses that you can use in your career... and don't bother asking for help with outside courses... you'll get the run around... just make use of the tuition reimbursement and find an accredited program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ethics... practice what you preach. Nothing more frustrating then to sit through a class every year on ethics to learn in the paper that the company blew it, and the executives should have known better. Not good for the company image nor the morale of the employees who now realize senior management isn't serious about it.

    SAIC Junior Software Engineer Review

    Pros

    SAIC provides a stable work environment where information is shared freely and adherence to ethical professional standards is fostered. The additional health and retirement benefits match industry standards. There is also a highly visible training program where one can advance ones professional skills and therefore career.

    Cons

    There are slightly lower than average salaries for software engineers. An employee ownership program whereby each employee could purchase premium company stock at a large discount has been downsized. At times it seems that promotions aren't given where they seem justifiable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    SAIC has traditionally been a little below average on salary compensation for software engineers. I'd suggest slightly boosting our salaries to match the industry.
