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

    Ability to work from home

    Cons

    I was recruited to SAIC from my military career. They promised me two years of employment in BD as I developed the market. Two months into the job, the company split and my position was eliminated and I was moved into a new division. They kept me around out of sympathy. I was laid off after 11 months. Lay off was over the phone. They never told me during recruiting that a split was impemding. They basically lied to this 22 year military veteran. They withheld that information. While working there, I found blatent lying and a culture of sucking up. I think this was only in he division I was transferred to. Perhaps the rest of the company is OK.
