    Decent Entry Job

    (Current Employee)

    ProsDecent pay for the amount of work required.

    ConsPromotions take too long. Worried about budget.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust go with your gut instinct. Don't worry about the government regulations that are slowing progress. Sometimes getting the contract means lowering your morals. These are the qualities that bring in business. It may not be right but it is the culture that has been facilitated in this country top down. Bring back happy hour and pay for the cab rides home. And if necessary, hire some high dollar call girls for the COTRs to make things happen. Come on, this is America.

    Buyer

    Buyer (Former Employee)
    Oak Ridge, TN

    ProsThe pay is fairly good as well as the benefits. A lot of really good people there just have the wrong people in management.

    ConsPoor management at least in shared services. A lot of bullying and no resources for the employee being harassed by management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo undercover boss and see for yourself.

    Some good, some bad.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPaid well, interesting work up to a point.

    ConsVery bureaucratic, not much focus on employee development. Taught just enough to do my job but not enough variety to make it interesting on an ongoing basis. Too much repetition.

    Management only takes care of themselves and the stockholders

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOverall, good colleagues and work life balance.

    ConsHigh cost of medical and dental, high deductibles. Depending on the manager, flex time may or may not be an option. 19 PTO for new hires only if you are at $150,000 or higher. Current employees got grandfathered at 19 PTO if under $150,000.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe know part of your bonus is tied to the stock price, and that is a factor why you favor buying back shares. Next time think of putting some of that cash towards employee salaries and invest in the company for a long term strategy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Busines Group Management Trust

    Senior Tech (Current Employee)
    Crane, IN

    ProsGreat People to work with.

    ConsManagement not very incompetent at times. They can't seem to get along for the common good of the company. No raise or bonus for 2014. With the cost of Health and Dental Insurance going up, most people are making less than last year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet along and don't worry who gets the credit / bonuses. You make a lot of money anyway.

    Lots of great people working for the company and they seem to really value their employees.

    Help Desk Analyst (Current Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsGreat benefits, personal growth, work-life balance and lost of good people in the company and it seems like the company really values their employees. No waiting period or anything for benefits. Get full benefits immediatly.

    ConsWorking on a government contract can be a bit stressful when you don't know what is going on with the contract and no it is hard to show how good of a worker you our when your boss is a gov employee and you rarely see your SAIC Manager.

    Manager

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPositive future for company, very ethics focused. Wants to grow and become better

    ConsBenefits and bonuses are no longer as appealing as they once were

    Advice to Senior ManagementReinstate a more robust bonus program, even if they are small bonuses. A small bonus is better then no bonus

    Great growth experience with SAIC

    Program Manager (Former Employee)
    Saint Louis, MO

    ProsEngaged with many new technologies in industry and the government

    ConsVery little opportunity to move within the company. Promotions and changes are very stovepiped

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage greater employee mobility in the company and do not force good talent to leave SAIC for other opportunities with the competition.
