    Current Employee - Information Technology in Orlando, FL
    Current Employee - Information Technology in Orlando, FL

    I have been working at SAIC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cutting edge research and engineering contracts and projects.
    The thing they value the most is their employees and the company is largely employee owned.
    The pay is competitive.
    They aren't afraid to give you a big bonus in the form of cash and shares if you are a high performer.

    Cons

    The benefits are average.
    There isn't much opportunity to work from home.
    There are fewer engineers and researchers on the board and in upper level management than previously.
    Healthcare plans favor those in DC and California. Healthcare plans for those in Texas and Florida should be changed to get more bang for the buck.
    You may be under utilized. If you have skills x, y, z management may only let you use x skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are great healthcare providers all over the US. The best ones tend to be local. Focus on adding healthcare providers for more locations.
    Force lower management to share skills and resources on their teams when other groups require them.

    Pros

    They preach integrity and much to their credit, they practice it. No allowance for failing to do the right thing when working for SAIC. Makes you proud to be associated with them. And the company is well respected for what it can bring to a customer.

    Cons

    Like so many others, driven to generate revenue, even though it may have negative impacts on employees, but the company often tries to mitigate those impacts.
