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 have been working at SAIC full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay is fairly well comparably

    Cons

    - Benefit package poor (In orderr to maintain low cost, Company is offering employees a choice of Health and Dental plan, or 401K, but not both. Sort of depressing that a once great company going down)
    - No Employee Care (Pink slip 30days before job ends. It used to be the managers take care of the employees and moved to another contract at the end of the period, but now, to save costs and overhead, great employees are just "let go")
    - Since going Public all about Profit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Listen to your workers
    - Look for positions for workers prior to end of contract

    I worked at SAIC full-time (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.
