Generally a good company

I have been working at SAIC full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Offers projects that are cutting edge and have technical challenge. The company thrives on creating and maintaining goods relationships with customers.

Cons

Very little help to find coverage within the company when your current project winds down. You need to help yourself and cultivate good relationships outside your department in order to maintain coverage over the long-term.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider more frequent briefings to involve employees in on-going business decisions. Avoid, at all costs, the dreaded four horsemen: Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt, and Disinformation.

    I have been working at SAIC

    Pros

    Ok benefits
    Flexibility in schedule
    Location
    Ok salary

    Cons

    Had to go through some HR actions in the past to bring salaries up to industry standards.
    No severence even after 20 yrs.
    Large company bureaucracy.
    Too much dependence on Department of Defense
    No $ to spend on R&D
    Divisions and groups unaware of capabilities of other divisions and groups - no communication
    Too much 'at will' employment to work particular contacts. This leads to uncertainty and lay offs when contracts end.
    At the mercy of bad management.
    New senior management bent on replacing longevity with new blood. No value given to corporate knowlege or experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and learn from your employees - especially when they've been around a long time. When you're new at management, sit back and observe and seek to understand before implementing changes to processes that you don't understand in the first place.

    I worked at SAIC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    SAIC is an exceptional place to work for, they have great benifits and really care about employees and their welfare. There are ample opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Most of the work is on a contractual basis. For the division I worked for the contracts were mostly on an annual basis so We had to bring these projects into completion by the end of fiscal year. If new contracts weren't obtained then you might be looking for a new job. This was a little frustrating knowing that you could be laid off every year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep getting new contracts.
