    I worked at SAIC

    Pros

    Good company and good people when they have a good contract. Some level of big company resources online due to the large sized nationally / internationally. Decent policies on tuition and such.

    Cons

    Pay was OK but not impressive. Employee support in small offices is very low. Felt more like a consulting firm run out of someone's basement almost. Formal career development and mentoring were basically zero. Seemed to be bias against employees without former military background.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the experience at smaller offices to have some of the characteristics of the larger sites.
