    Pros

    Great environment to work in. Great people to work with, flexible time, supportive management, and career advancement opportunities. Overall, an enjoyable place to work.

    Cons

    Benefits have gotten much worse in the last few years, and they start you off at low salaries. At times, corporate guidance and processes seem out of sync.

    Pros

    Good benefits, people and work environment, and training opportunities are plentiful.

    Cons

    Too much focus on shareholders. High stock price should not be the only ultimate goal of a company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to basics. Recognize what really makes a company great (hint: employees).

    I have been working at SAIC full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Been an employee for over 10 years, and the new SAIC has a better focus and handle on the strategy for the marketplace. The management team in place today listens and is responsive, but thin in numbers. Good opportunities for technical folks.

    Cons

    Communications with the staff is sporadic, with some programs doing well, and others leaving a void of information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share more info with the staff. This will assist in keeping and building trust and camaraderie.
