I worked at SAIC as a contractor (more than 5 years)

Pros

While I was there, it was a nice environment with good people. However, that was back in 2010. When I was there, there was flex time, work from home, and a generally employee friendly attitude. Please see the cons for the sad conclusion....

Cons

Our group was like a family and highly productive. The department has since been entirely laid off. I don't know what is happening there now, but before the last of the group was laid off, they were told they could no longer work from home, and were being asked to work more hours with too few people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management didn't listen or care about our process. I would recommend listening more instead of making decisions from "on high."

    I worked at SAIC

    Pros

    SAIC used to feel like a solid, ethical company.
    Great benefits
    They will pay a fair amount for education

    Cons

    Seems like the culture has changed since they went public and when they split into two companies.
    No upward mobility. If you are a support contractor, that is pretty much where you will stay.
    The company used to stand for strong ethics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what differentiates SAIC from all of the other government contractors and play to those strengths. Give employees something to believe in.
