I have been working at SAIC full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Talented people across a wide base of career fields, supporting virtually industry leaves a lot of room for career growth. The new company design affords ample opportunities for training, advancement, and relocation for those interested in travel.

Cons

Occasionally poor communication from upper management, historically silo'd areas of operation. New company uses a matrix org., which may address some of that - but it hasn't really flushed out yet; leaving many employees confused about roles and responsibilities. Recruitment and advancement opportunities not well advertised, and unless you're at a HQ location, likelihood of promotion beyond line management are slim.

Advice to Management

Engage employees more fully in the decisionmaking process, and communicate rationale in a clear way that includes analyzed alternatives. Seek talent out from within.

    I worked at SAIC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ethics are big with this company, Management was friendly and helped employees with any personal issues.

    Cons

    Not enough local contracts on the island, when the contract I was in terminated there were not enough positions for placement of former employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire the local talent, it is the best way to maintain efficient and effective performance from those who work close to their families and friends.
