Pros

SAIC is a great company for self motivated professionals in their second or third job out of school. SAIC is not a good place for someone fresh out of school as you are expected to show up prepared to perform. We closely reflect our customers. that means you should have some prior service experience before joining SAIC. If you want the chance to set your own future based on your interests and willingness to perform, then SAIC is the place for you.

Cons

SAIC has difficulty making hard decisions. Because management typically comes from the customers we serve, government, they tend to suffer from similar decision making weaknesses found in government. Because we are a great company from a self starter entrepreneurial perspective, don't expect senior management to think about grand strategy and lay out a roadmap for mid and direct level managers to follow. It is up to you to figure it out.

Don't confuse lack of strategy or decision making skills with a lack of oversight (data calls) and a never ending list of new management self serve requirements. SAIC is trying to learn how to be big. We have grown fast and continue to struggle with how you lead in a larger company.

In summary, there is nothing inspiring in senior leadership (bugm and up).

Advice to Management

Dirtied it where we are going and start mKing real decisions.
