I have been working at SAIC

Pros

The majority of the employees are extremely bright, very friendly people, with a variety of work. My manager is as much of a mentor as a manager; he takes a personal interest in my career inside and outside of SAIC. The 15% stock purchase plan is nice, and my boss supports flex time.

Cons

Barriers to jobs because of clearance issues, organization amongst offices could use work, job titles don't necessarily reflect the work you do. Although there is a variety of work, it means employees have many different projects going on at once, and managers can not be connected very much to the work that is being performed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the organizational structure less complicated.

    An O.K. place to work as government contractors go. Too many locations for this review to be all inclusive

    Pros

    saic has so many locations that there is not a "one size fits all" answer. For my specific situation pay is the driving factor

    Cons

    Typical large company mentality. Lots of forms to fill out and lots of people doing nothing that contributes to the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none, why bother

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Fast paced, varied work environment - there's always a new job around the corner, or a new opportunity to try. SAIC has a solid reputation in the federal industry, and new work is constantly coming in. Many jobs required a security clearance, and SAIC will hire w/o one.

    Cons

    long hours, uncertain career path, uncertain company future - it really depends where you work on how much you'll like your job. Local management is under a lot of pressure to meet profit quotas, so if you're on a contract with a tight bottom line, benefits can be sparse (e.g. no education benefits, low salary increases, little money for employee moral)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate, communicate, COMMUNICATE!
