    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

    Great people never lacked for work at least when I was there can't speak to that now

    Cons

    Pay wasn't great you had to fight for everything you got my manager thought remote working was great but he didn't want anyone else to do it
    He didn't like me because I opened my mouth

    Advice to Management

    Be careful who you put in management positions just because they have been there for. While doesn't mean they are cut out for it

    Pros

    Salary is pretty fair from both what I've seen and heard.

    Cons

    Quality of people, management, facilities.

    Know this: aside from the exciting videos of people doing high technology and smiling, SAIC is a services company who focuses on military contracts. There aren't people inventing things or working to solve humanities problems.

    Most all of us get stuck in a grimy building on a military installation and are turning wrenches on military vehicles. That's the true nature of this company; chasing down contracts and keeping the military industrial complex alive and well. If you're okay with that, come on in and close the door. If you want to do something that promotes a healthy future for the whole of humanity...keep movin.

    Advice to Management

    Push for and invest in the health and welfare of the people who do the real wrench turning. Look at the success of companies who invest in their people. Quality facilities, tools to do their job, nurture an environment of happiness and commeraderie.

    Pros

    - tuition reimbursement
    - Varied opportunities and the ability to evolve duties within a position

    Cons

    Ten years of business experience in Dayton itself has proven the point that the area is built around a strong bias toward engineering. Positions that don't contain that title are treated as second class citizens and will likely be underpaid compared to other regions. SAIC did cater to this mindset, but they were certainly not unique in this bias.

    The SR business unit had some managers who ended up in anger management. The Dayton Ohio office was very aggressive and not at all a good fit for me, but I stayed for a couple of years because the good managers were excellent.

    Advice to Management

    Pursuing business is critical to corporate success, but not at the expense of people doing the leg work. It's possible to aggressively pursue new business without creating a hostile environment. And when your employee takes on new duties above their pay grade, they should be compensated for that. I'm glad to have gotten my start through SAIC in Dayton, but I was very glad to leave.
