    Current Employee - Senior Analyst in Abingdon, MD
    Current Employee - Senior Analyst in Abingdon, MD

    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

    - Decent salary
    - Easy to discuss problems with management
    - Good relationship with customer (government)
    - General ability to maintain independent day-to-day actions

    Cons

    - No communication with senior management
    - Difficult to get responses from HR/pay offices
    - Hired the wrong people for the contract
    - Contract proposal was beyond the scope of possibility
    - Underpaid for the work required

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people that you put in charge of task orders. In theory these people are in place because they understand the interaction with the customer and how best to reach the results for the contract. Do not pay exorbitant prices for people that have no practical experience and will not learn the job they were hired to complete. Senior personnel are only beneficial if they are more knowledgeable than a junior analyst.
