    Former Employee - Software Engineer in San Diego, CA

    I worked at SAIC full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I was able to rotate through a number of interesting positions over the course of a decade. Some really good people. Large number of contracts ensures the company will survive. Great if you're former military. Entrepreneurial bent.

    Cons

    Going public was a disaster. The culture changed and a lot of long time employees who thought they'd get rich when the company went public endied up losing a lot of money. The company seemed to have more than its share of mini-scandals and there were a number of attractive women in various management positions who'd 'worked' their way up from administrative assistant type positions. It was kind of an open secret and a running joke. One very senior manager was sent packing when his extra-curricular activities were uncovered. A lot of employees that I was around were worked to the bone: a stroke, a massive heart attack and a nervous breakdown all felled people that I worked around because of the unyielding pressure. 2 guys in their early 50s, 1 in his early 40s.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The capricious exercise of power will lead to the better performers looking for the exits.

    Current Employee - Manager to Incident-Problem Team in Torrance, CA

    I have been working at SAIC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Vision - direction
    Management - Control of Team
    TEAMWORK - The best team members
    Collaboration - Willingness to work and assist with other teams (internal/external)
    Cooperation - Againg willingness to jump in and volunteer when other non-SAIC teams would not

    Cons

    When a contract is expired, your left hanging without any 'next' assignment even after, blood, sweat and years (months) you have given to this fantastic company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In advance of contract end date, start assisting employee to determine where in the area/region he/she may be able to contribute to another contract or engagement.
