    I have been working at SAIC full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    In the past, this office offered lots of opportunities for career growth. People who did good work were retained and promoted. Pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Layoffs have become the norm at the Abingdon, MD office. Every week, more and more people are laid off. Those of us still there are always fearing a layoff notice. Lack of foresight on the part of management has led to a shrinking business portfolio.

    I have been working at SAIC full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
