I have been working at SAIC full-time for more than a year

Pros

1. Great benefits
2. Incredible people
3. A lot of talent and experience

Cons

1. It doesn't feel like there is real room for growth - there is a weird fine line between doing more for the same pay or getting a position that pays more, but has less hours to charge to. Very weird dynamic.

    Pros

    when your group wins work, you're busy and billable, and there are opportunities to learn

    Cons

    poor collegiality between staff
    overly secretive even when the work does not require it
    company is very silo-ed, intracompany work impossible or very hard to do
    management has zero sense of loyalty to staff
    all overhead generated from years of being >75% billable meant nothing when we lost our contract
    i was given zero time to look for new work and company recruiters (emailed every single one of them, not one replied) were 100% useless
    i was kept on staff but received no pay when we lost our contract (ultimately, i left the company)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take care of your staff or other companies will

    Pros

    SAIC started out as a "science" company, but that's long gone, so no PROs!

    Cons

    1) Company is an overgrown body shop.
    2) Company AGGRESSIVELY blacklists former employees to other companies.
    3) Your job lasts as long as your contract unless you are VERY well connected.
    4) Company has a poor image due to poor management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide what you want to be - while you still can!
