    Pros

    SAIC pay scale is quite good for mid to upper level employees. Good bonus amounts and benefits. Ability to have stock options as well.

    Cons

    Treat lower level employees as revenue generators only. Could care less about these employees and have lowered benefits for these employees while increasing compensation for managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    getting a bad reputation of not taking care of customer needs and being too greedy

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Benefits - health, etc. Even include benefits for same-sex partners.

    Cons

    Everything else. As a DoD contractor, I worked on a Naval Base. Our office was inside an old storage room and vault. The main problem was our management was in San Diego, California and our job site was in Hawaii. There was next to no oversight. The immediate management not only condoned, but participated in unethical behavior. The most common was time card fraud - reporting time worked when they were not there. Especially taking excessive breaks, leaving early, etc.
    The building was classified Secret, and our workspace was Top Secret. This requires a ban on any communication or recording devices. Boss & colleagues routinely brought in and used mobile phones, and even USB drives.
    The resources (phone, computers) were often used for personal tasks, to the point of creating a loss of productivity.
    We had quarterly corporate ethics training (web-based), and afterwards the (local) managers would tell us to essentially disregard the policies.
    I was threatened with physical violence after I reported a colleague for ongoing unethical behavior. When I tried to escalate the situation through upper management, I was told *I* should consider finding a different job. Because I was "the only one with a problem with not following procedure."

    I was intending to give my notice when the Dept of the Navy declined to renew our contract, especially in light of recent SAIC employee practices.

    I can't speak to SAIC as an entire company, but any time there is not clear management you invite problems. I would be extremely hesitant to work for them again. The people I worked with were truly the least ethical & professional colleagues I ever had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More oversight for you offsite jobs. Better support for "whistle blowers."

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
