    When it was employee owned it was centered around employee happiness not profits for the shareholders.

    I worked at SAIC

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. The company is very large and has many locations. With so many positions with the government from city to state and up to the federal level there are many different positions and career fields to choose from.

    Cons

    With the breakup of the company especially after making bad investment decisions and spending money on the transition we lost many positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your employees without their support you wouldn't exist in the community. Try and put the employees's happiness to the forefront of your attention not only focus on investors profits.

    Telecommuting is the best thing you can do for your employee. Should keep that program.
