  1. Good company but poor management

    I worked at SAIC full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits even though the compensation was low. Provided training and certifications needed to win new and maintain existing contracts.

    Cons

    Even though a lot more responsibility was piled on there was no additional compensation. I have not had an experience like this since I left the company.

    Advice to Management

    The advice I can give may not apply any more since my Project Manager has since been fired from the company due to lack of ethical practices.

    Pros

    Very supportive of employees, willing to work hard to listen to and respond to issues and resource needs, including organizational backing and support

    Cons

    Going through growing pains with the Leidos split and implementation of their service line matrix. These should be completed by now and supporting employee development.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the "hands-on" and "small-business" approach to staff and implementing support services, and continue to listen and involve employee at all levels.

    Pros

    Professional Company with a great environment for personal and professional growth. Great Mentor-Ship program. Great Redeployment program retaining exceptional talent pool.

    Many corporate changes since the split of the company especially with the loss of benefits. Change in management structure which can be confusing and not always beneficial if you work directly for the customer.

    Pros

    Great company. Potential for growth, but you must lead this aggressively.

    Cons

    When working on site for the client, SAIC serves minimal protection against, verifying customer complaints. Customer is always right, even when evidence is proven otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure there's procection over your employees, when working off site.
