I have been working at SAIC

Pros

SAIC has a great benefits package and overall compensation in my particular field is above average for my local area.

Cons

As a government contractor positions are contingent upon contract wins. If a contract is lost many of employees on that contract have to find new positions within SAIC on their own.

Management & Administrative Support are spread across the country and change constantly, so in many cases employees end up feeling like a number.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reach out to employees on an individual basis. Mass e-mails are not a good approach for every situation.

    Pros

    Great networking abilities, ability to work all over the world with diverse cultures and get access to interesting projects with large clients.

    Cons

    Sometimes left out on your own in certain countries, as the US was always the main focus and where the power lay, and international business didn't seem as important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about getting feedback from management from all over the globe on strategies, priorities and especially how we work with clients so not to promise things which cannot be delivered in the future.

    I worked at SAIC

    Pros

    Willing to relocate people out of the military.
    Great information flow from top to bottom.
    Received a pay raise 3 months after employment.

    Cons

    Over worked / under paid.
    Misled by program manager.
    All in all employee satisfaction ranks low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a good oversight of program managers. When employees are essentially taken advantage of, and you have a 4 month turnover on contractors on a contract; it isn't likely that you are adequately spending government funds for the contract, and something should likely be investigated to figure out why you are having such a high turnover. This shouldn't ever be acceptable.
