    SAIC a company in flux but still a great place to work

    Engineering Designer (Former Employee)
    Oak Ridge, TN

    ProsSAIC provides great learning and intellectual growth opportunities through their world-wide project base yet maintains a casual work environment.

    ConsMany technical employees are responsible for maintaining an average goal of ~95% time sold.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAttempt to cross-train existing, long time employees (10+ years of service?) to another business function where they may be more advantageous to the company before terminating.

    Working with SAIC management

    Senior Usability Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsWhen first employed, I suggested that I could give brown bag seminars in my career field to interest other SAIC employees in getting certified for a lateral career move. Management approved my proposal and supported acquisition of training materials for it. After that, three employees made the lateral move, proving the concept.

    ConsThe switch to Leidos overshadowed continuation of creative efforts at corporate growth and development.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe able to walk and chew gum at the same time. Keep up the tradition of forward thinking.

    ProsThe people! I worked with some of the best folks that I consider friends! Talent, ambition, dedication…the people made SAIC come to life!

    ConsSAIC management was Amazing. I was fortunate to work with personnel that believed in the folks they hired. I was given opportunity that I could never have imagined. I did have some complications with certain management teams but who doesn't?
