    Pros

    Large stable company, great HR department, responsive, professional.

    Cons

    Contracts can be shaky things. When the contract you are working on ends, you and sometimes hundreds of others have to "apply" for other positions in the company local or far--with no guarantee you will land a spot. This gives you a sense of instability. And, in spite of working -- for perhaps years, there is NO severance pay, even though it clearly specifies the conditions for severance pay on the website. All you receive is any vacation owing. I confirmed this with HR. That is a shocker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Install a better way to keep good talent when contracts end.

    I worked at SAIC full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Management was nice and usually kept me up to speed with current issues. Being a large company, SAIC had plenty of opportunities for me to redeploy when necessary. Benefits were fairly decent with progressive leave accrual and okay health coverage.

    Cons

    They seem to underpay their employees in comparison to other employers in the area. Team interaction was something to be desired as we had very few meetings together or any outings.
