A good temporary job

Senior Engineer (Former Employee)
New Orleans, LA

I worked at SAIC

ProsVery good access to important jobs
Stable work environment
Access to technical information
Willingness by SAIC to support your customer
Less management hands on at remote sites

ConsUnless you are at San Diego or the Washington DC area, your job is only as good as the contract your are currently on. If it goes away, so do you. SAIC advertises that they have a great many opportunities across the country, but in truth, these do not exist. The company advertises all jobs at all sites, but most are already filled or the site is looking for the cheapest candidate requiring no relocation.

If you are at one of the aforementioned sites, then you can move around in the company, if not don't look at SAIC as a permanent place to work.

The company also advertises itself as "Employee Owned", this is no longer true. They went public several years ago and now treat employees the same as all of the other large public corporations with little regard save profits.

Advice to Senior ManagementRe-do your HR, it is appalling.
Re consider your employees as being your product and elicit their buy-in to the company.
Make an attempt to relocate and reallocate employees in the event of a project downturn or termination.
