    Pros

    They operate in many different sectors, so plenty of opportunities. Smart coworkers. Salary was pretty good. Worker-life balance seemed above average.

    Cons

    Very large company with offices and clients all over the country. Unless you're located at one of their main campuses, you'll feel out of touch with the SAIC community.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the employees who do not operate near a SAIC campus. Keeping people engaged means more than an occassional email or phone call.

    Jobs linked to direct contracts. When the contract ends, so does your job.

    Take better care of your workforce.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good pay, and opportunity to travel. Good management that had expectations but did not micro manage.

    Cons

    Work depended on government funding which ebb and flowed every year. Vacation has to be accrued. There is no separate sick leave, so if sick and can't work, then company requires you to take vacation hours. It is a fixed rate of accrument that only changes with time in the company.

    Advice to Management

    In lieu of pay increases, give employees opportunity to get more vacation hours.

    Pros

    Generally, good benefits and good people

    How good or bad depends entirely on where you are working. One place was great work, frustrating management, while another place was the reverse.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more competitively to keep people working there.
