Advice to ManagementAdvice

SAIC has only a few official leadership/management development programs that are far behind other, larger defense contractor's programs. Additionally, their escalation rates (which correlate to your yearly raises) are horrible on some contracts, which is why in defense consulting it pays to bounce around. Once you get hired you might be happy with your salary, but don't expect anything over a 3-5% increase in your salary per year.

    Pros

    Dedication to ethical behavior in the work place and with our customers
    Commitment to excellence in execution and providing the customer more than expected
    Fair compensation
    Good internal communications up and down

    Cons

    SAIC is a large company with lots of internal divisions and sub divisions making it difficult to stay internally connected - our challenge is to be ONE SAIC and we have to work at it every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remain focused on making a difference for the Nation and you will keep SAIC on the right track. I am pleased that our priorities begin with the safety and success of our warfighters and our citizens.

    Pros

    A great group of people to work with and a joy to show up at work. Benefits are above many other companies.

    Cons

    Hard to get trade training to keep up with current technology. Job positions are advertised lower than they actually are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people. It is easy to hire in talent, but what is the right thing when their skill start to get dated.
