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

Pros

SAIC is a good place to work. Nothing spectacular about pay or benefits but the people you work with are top notch and many have been in the industry for a long time and eager to share their experience and knowledge. Local operations and business units are very good at keeping the work coming in and we keep the customers happy. After the corporate split into SAIC and Leidos the corporate management seems eager to regain that something special that SAIC used to have when it was employee owned and before the founder retired.

Cons

Top management has gone down hill since Dr Beyster left the CEO position and the company drifted towards being a typical defense contractor body shop. A series of weak CEOs seemed too eager to make us clone of everybody else. Too little investment in employees, too eager to trim costs. Seems to be turning around post split but the dust is still settling.

    Pros

    Really smart people who work well as a team. Great opportunities. Being in San Diego use to be another great pro but that has changed.

    Cons

    Relocating to McLean, Va. Breaking the company into two.

    Advice to Management

    Move Hq back to San Diego.

    I worked at SAIC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company goes out of their way to help their employees maintain their technical edge and explore new opportunities of learning for career growth.

    Cons

    Many positions within the internal job board require DoD security clearance and most of the hiring managers aren't willing to sponsor. The company would have a greater retention policy if they would change this one thing.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your recruiters and hiring managers to give them the flexibility to sponsor current employees to obtain or upgrade their security clearance! (They're not that expensive in the scope of things!)
