Pros

Good benefits, reasonably good pay, some interesting work, good job security (highly dependent on your business unit), many good lower level workers

Cons

The bureaucracy is often stifling and upper management is so risk averse (or lazy) that it's impossible to get any new, interesting work started.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow employees to be more entrepreneurial. It may hurt the bottom line in the short term, but the company won't be able to grow forever if they can never be very creative.

    It's a J O B if you need to work and they will provide unless the contract runs out.

    Pros

    If you need a salary and a job they will provide. They are in some very interesting sectors of the military which can make your job very exciting.

    Cons

    It is all based on contract services. If the contract runs out you will be left without a job. Make sure you are always secure becuase SAIC will not provide security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put something in place to let your workers know that if a contract runs out they will be protected for a certain amount of time.

    Pros

    Great minds and opportunities to work on projects that matter. SAIC as a company is a great place to work and for the most part a great set of people to spend a career with.

    Cons

    If you are not experienced in your poistion or move up through the ranks do not expect any asssitance. Whether you like it or not you will need to adapt and roll with the failures as most times your management has little or no time to train/ mentor you in the ways of your new position. This can be very difficult if its a job you have never performed. Also be aware that despite how competitive they are saying their pay methodology is. it is closely guarded and come to my discovery very suspect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more active role in your employees making sure they are understanding something or in need of guidance is not micro-managing. and if you are going to promote an inexpereinced worker please do so fairly with compensation that somewhat matches his/her coworkers. Discover of big gaps in pay can be the most demotivating information an employee can receive.
