Pros

Good pay, lots of varied programs/projects, interesting work

Cons

SAIC is effectively a body shop for the Government. This is not necessarily a con but people who join SAIC should understand this and not take it personally that the company won't "carry" you when a contract goes away.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Government contractor with talented and intelligent workers.

    Cons

    Benefits. High deductible health insurance. No training provided for fast changing technology. The company split has management is turmoil. I got a merit raise and things are so screwed up, no one can tell me how much of a raise I got.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No matter how much business you win, you need people to do the work. Good luck finding an intelligent person who would work for us.
