Good company but employment tied to business unit and customer contract.

I worked at SAIC full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The business unit I worked empowered its employees to make decisions and structure their workload as they saw fit. They encouraged innovated thinking and ideas.

Cons

Employment tied to a particular business unit and customer contract, once the customer contract was finished generally so was your employment. Almost like being a contract employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to improve job stability. When I was there each Business Unit did their own hiring. There was no centralized HR organization.

    Pros

    Overall position of the company among government contractors is solid, and the future does not look too bad.

    Cons

    Mid to lower level managers do not always help in employee development and in future opportunities for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower level managers often know more than their supervisors do about their people. Listen to those people for guidance and insight as how to best manage their teams.

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits. Good people.

    Cons

    Will lay you off with no severance package after 12 years!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the management style that existed prior to becoming public. Show the employees some respect!
