I worked at SAIC

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.

    I have been working at SAIC

    Pros

    For me personally I have been very fortunate to find a group of people within SAIC that I love working with. My direct manager is AMAZING, although those above him aren't quite so wonderful. My manager has worked hard to allow all of him employees to grow and learn. So for me I have to say the people I work with on a daily basis are the best reason for me to work at SAIC.

    Cons

    Trying to figure out what senior management is thinking would take an entire full of Ph.D's. I have very little faith in them and the decisions they have been making about this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP!!!!! and listen to your employees. And I don't mean the ones that sit in the board room with you. Go to office outside of Northern Va and San Diego; talk to the real employees and find out what they think and feel about the current position of SAIC>

    I have been working at SAIC

    Pros

    SAIC offers excellent compensation and benefits. They pursue a lot of different types of contracts so they offer a large variety positions. The company is very focused on ensurring the ethical behavior of management and employees. They have an extensive self development site for computer based training.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities are few outside of the San Deigo and DC areas. Mostly contract work, so if you lose your contract and position you need to find yourself new work within the company or expect to be laid off. There is still some internal competition for the same contracts going on within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend that management pay more attention to the development and retention of growing managers.
