    I have been working at SAIC (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My leadership has always valued my contribution and compensated me fairly for my work output and managerial success. I'm given a lot of autonomy to run the program I manage, which has contributed greatly to our team's success.

    Cons

    Once the company split into SAIC and Leidos, the cost pressures have been extremely noticeable. Less bodies to do as much or more work. Less focus on employee morale and more on the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate leadership needs to focus more on key people development and providing ongoing leadership training opportunities to all managers.

    I have been working at SAIC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very supportive management who want you to succeed in the company. If you don't know the answer to a problem you are working on there is always someone you can ask. It is a very teamwork oriented work environment.

    Cons

    I had to take a job that was not going to be around for long but they do their best to find you another position with them. You need to be willing to move out of the area to improve your chances.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. As of right now it is the best company I have ever worked for.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn and get involved in some exciting programs.

    Mostly government work and the beauracracy and painfully handicapped customer that goes with it.

    Improve the benefits for the hourly and better address work life balance for senior engineering and management.

    I worked at SAIC full-time

    Pros

    I liked the people I worked with. They are very professional and friendly. I also like the physical working environment.

    Cons

    Some of the company-assisted higher education program, e.g., Master degree, are not made available to all. The rating system during performance review is not communicated well to all employees.

    Advice to Management

    I 'd like to see more training offered to employees who are driven to learn new skills. I'd like to see more transparency on how performance review and rating of employees were conducted.

    I have been working at SAIC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It depends on the contract you are working on, but with mine I have flexible hours and the ability to work from home if I needed. And if the contract expires, SAIC works with you to find a new one.

    Cons

    I can't wear shorts to work. :)

    Advice to Management

    Great job so far, but I have only been here a few months and have had a great experience so far. But as I would suggest to any company's execs: listen to those in the trenches and don't rule them out. Ever.
