Pros

Professional company with lots of support and great compensation. Big company but divisions are close. Always someone you can go to for advise or assistance.

Cons

Jobs are defined by the contracts. Senior staff is involved with proposal writing which is sporatic but can be time consuming.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some managers can use mentoring. Not everyone is manager material even if they are great at their job. Need strong second in command if you have a weak manager.

    Pros

    The technical staff is, for the most part, very sharp and focused on providing the best solutions to their customer's problems. Wages and benefits are competitive enough and the company is always trying to grow. SAIC supports a good balance between work and private life and the company and employees regularly pull together to help support a fellow employee through a sudden hardship or donate to charity. A diverse contract pool and willing management allows for freedom of movement between projects.

    Cons

    The company is making a big push to grow and become a real competitor to the big boys. Re-organizations are a constant theme and management is always under the gun to hit ever increasing budget plans. Time sold and the almighty dollar is the new motto. An unhealthy amount of in-fighting among management often distracts from providing great service to the customer and increases the amount of work needed. Career development paths look good on paper but the implementation plan hasn't materialized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the customer is the one keeping us all employed. The technical staff is the face the customer sees the most and are the people who provide the tangible solutions. Management's role is to support both to the best of their abilities and keep the wheels turning, not locking them up with in-fighting. Grow talent internally rather than pull talent from outside.
