    Pros

    - I have a job and bring home a paycheck.
    - Fun people to work with

    Cons

    - Don't know who my manager is
    - Training/Career development is non-existent -- Don't feel secure about future employment since skills are getting rusty
    - Hard to stay motivated when company doesn't have any expectations for performance other than a body filling a slot that they can bill for

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. Make them feel like they are part of the company.

    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.
