I worked at SAIC full-time for less than a year

Pros

Get to work with extremely talented people who's willing to help as much as they can. Never seen such synergy in the team compare to others. Everyone is a contributor. I realize getting into such a good group can be draw of the luck. During interview, she asked "Do you like being thrown in the volcano on your first day?" This group was known for being overtasked and a stressful environment but as said... it wasn't true at all. I really doubt I'd work with such talented team again in the future.

Cons

I left a company for better pay and medical. SAIC Medical plan sucks! If SAIC manangement is reading this then change it ASAP! You say that it's a fair plan but it's not and you know it! You have the worst benefit compare to ANY company by far. I promise that more people will leave and more negative review will follow. If you ever want to join, make sure to bump $10k for sucky insurance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't mess with the medical. We all are raising a family and we deserve a fair plan with co-pay..not this ridiculous $3000 deductible, pay 20% of the bill instead of co-pay. I've been with many company and you guys are really screwing on family need... provide a decent medical.

    I have been working at SAIC as a contractor for more than 10 years

    Pros

    flexible schedule , great team work.

    Cons

    Upper management is not involved in what is going at the contract level. Lots of shady stuff going on at the lower levels with Project Managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more involved in what is going on at the lower management levels.

    I have been working at SAIC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The fellow employs are great to work with. The flex schedule is a plus

    Cons

    SAIC’s higher managements lack of the ability to say no. . As for benefits don’t get sick. The health insurance is overpriced and you have to pay a big chunk before they cover anything. This is not a company you will spend your career with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to say no to the customer, learn to say yes to the employs.
