Pros

One of the best companies I've worked for. Employees are intelligent, reliable and dedicated. Although nothing is handed to you, the ways to improve your skills and better your chances for advancement are available and well-communicated. Compensation is in line with market and those with security clearances are in high demand. Hard work is well rewarded with merit pay and bonuses. There are opportunities to move with in the company to many different geographic locations.

Cons

Long hours are expected, although this is somewhat balanced by telecommuting. You are expected to be available immediately at all hours, even on vacation. Employees are very competitive and not always helpful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire the best and let them go.

    Pros

    SAIC hires decent people to work with who are hard working and really take their job seriously. There are a few bad weeds in the bunch - but I assume that's to be expected. The benefits are decent, however they're decreasing with time due to 'budget savings'.

    Cons

    Upper management will stab you in the back! If you have been promised something, get it in writing. Don't believe that any level of management is your friend. I have learned this the hard way multiple times. It is very frustrating and disheartening. The level of moral in SAIC has deminished tremendously over the past 11 years that I worked there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to treat your employees better. There is such a thing as integrity, honesty, and ethical behavior. Very few senior management even know the meaning of the words. They will stab you in the back in a heartbeat!

    Pros

    Big company with interests in many industries, technologies or specialties so there is something for everyone. Pretty good work-life balance here.

    Cons

    Extremely big company that is very loosely organized, operating like a roll-up of many medium-sized businesses. SAIC, as a huge contractor, means that your job satisfaction depends very much on the customer you work for. Hard to feel really tied to the company compared to the customer you see and work with everyday. Feels like an in-between place to be where you're not really super invested in SAIC but not really a full member of your customer's organization either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    No opinion of CEO
