I have been working at SAIC

Pros

Job with a mission - government oriented
Good employee support although communication could be better

Cons

Military mindset throughout company - could stand to be more business oriented
No clear career path. Promotions are there but you have to find your own way

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work more as a commercial business and less as a military subsidiary. Focus on revenue, profits and customer satisfaction.

    Pros

    Corporate Culture is among the finest available. They stipulate the highest level of maturity and ethics, and they follow it.

    Cons

    Corporate structure of any company this large is very rigid. If you are not at the place you want to be in your career you should consider building it elsewhere first. Otherwise you will always be held back based on your original hire skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to improve your speed and responsiveness to customer needs. Internal processes are extremely cumbersome and customers don't want to wait when they can find smaller, more responsive companies around the corner.
