Pros

-Good Dental insurance and Retirement
-Other Benefits

The company has different benefits if you are in the Capital City region (DC-MD-VA area). Initially when working for the company, it has good incentives for employment such as a normal life/work balance, no work on weekends, overtime pay and helping in tuition for graduate work or certifications. My former contract was more balanced but without too much upper mobility.

Cons

-Lower upper mobility
-Deceptive tactics in offering employees more mobility
-Health insurance options are poor

Program managers deceive you when they 'need' people for another contract requirement. I was doing well at my other job but wanted to do more to move further up in my IT career. I took the offer and realized after that I was doing lower level work and not in my position. It was already too late to stay in the other contract and I had to accept my new position. Currently improving my qualitifications and move on to other opportunities when I complete them.

Advice to Management

Try to actually help employees to move forward in their career. The company was originally a good | work life balance. Consequently because of problems with the US government with conflict of Interests, SAIC decided to break apart to two companies Leidos and SAIC. Unfortunately, I cam at the end of the SAIC cycle and realizing that my options are limited to progress to a better contract.

    Pros

    Opportunities are there if you look for them; however, on the government contract side, contract is employment factor.

    Cons

    Leadership in the business unit did not support the employees actually performing the work. Very nepitistic/incenstual envornment.

    Advice to Management

    Business units should perform more 360 reviews and clean house.
