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.

    Pros

    SAIC is not a terrible company at all. The problem is that the structure is so rigid, that advancement opportunities are rare. Although the company seems to keep scoring lucrative govt. contracts, salaries remain frozen, and promotions are non-existent.

    Cons

    Poor advancement opportunity
    No govt. spending means frozen salaries
