Cons

retirement plans, lack of communication from management, lack of structured work environment, not a real business focus/mission

Advice to Management

It was an alright experience at SAIC. While I really enjoyed being around wonderful and nice people and nice perks including a company gym to work out, fun team games and flexible work schedule, I just found that it was not the right type of environment for my professional growth and success.

The work environment was quite loose. The work environment is not quite structured. The management team was quite hands off. There was no real communication and coodination from the management team. The management team needs a big improvement in their leadership and communication skills.

The company as a whole doesn't have one true business focus. It's like they are trying to be everything they can be to please their customers with so many different focuses and different business units. That's the downside.

    Pros

    Very well comensated with above average pay and bonus each year. They take care of management personnel both mid level and upper

    Cons

    They could care less about lower level employees. When job market grew bad they could care less as they just hired more worker bees. They cut pay, benefits for lower level employees

    Advice to Management

    When market improves many will leave company. Just hanging out now because economy in the dumps

    Not bad but headed in a bad direction because of bad upper management.

    Pros

    Salary, promotions, benefits, good work environment but a lot of military psychos work there.

    Cons

    Ridiculous overhead rates caused by too many chiefs make winning new work impossible. Collosal blunders like the Greek Olympics ($100 million loss) and CityTime ($500 million loss) caused by poor upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the entire board of directors.
