I worked at SAIC full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very ethical. Focus is on customer as well as employee excellence. Job performance counts. Most managers will help career development within their contract and overhead budget constraints.

Cons

SAIC sells services primarily to Department of Defense. Longevity is primarily based on your ability to stay billable on a contract. Most service contracts are 1-5 years. Nothing wrong with Defense work. Just need to understand the nature of the business.

    I have been working at SAIC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good corporate structure and plenty of offices nationwide. SAIC always seems to get the big wins on contracts and should be even more competitive after the company splits in 2013. The management is always focused.

    Cons

    Can change projects without warning, so you need to be flexible. 2013 insurance isn't the best but is trying to be competitive thanks to Obamacare. Overall, not much to complain about. If you bring more to the table (degrees, certifications) you'll be better compensated.

    I worked at SAIC as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -High pay for a college graduate student -More overtime hours than regular hours (7 day work week/15 hours a day -Generously reimbursed for use of personal vehicle -Loved the job and the people I worked for/with

    Cons

    -Lots of temp contracts but few permanent entry-level positions -Temp work will most likely not lead to permanent work -No real benefits other than employee stock purchasing plan -Prepare to spend a lot of time in traffic and long country highways

    Advice to Management

    While I understand that the company makes a lot of temporary hires to work on special projects as a strategy for cost efficiency the company should use these projects as an opportunity to observe potential candidates for permanent employment.
