    Great if you can make a large company "small"

    I worked at SAIC full-time

    Pros

    Large corporations depend on small office to get work done. The right manager can make the large company feel smaller and more personable. A division with strong, healthy leadership and growth is a joy to work for.

    Cons

    If you are in a division or office lacking strong leadership, you can become just a number in the corporate system. Lacking business development can mean you are only viable as long as the current contract exists.

    My experience has been great. The company is very professional. There are a lot of different levels of technical experts

    I have been working at SAIC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible with time-off and work schedules as long as you get the required time in per week and are following policy. They also support education, training, and certification. There is compensation for certifications as long as they are pre-approved.

    Cons

    Not the best benefits package. Premiums are at an all time high. Also, teams are now broken out into different service lines. And I've only talked to my task manager via email as they sit in a different location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communications from service lines down to the lowest level.

    Pros

    It was a good mix, got to do some state side traveling and they took care of you when you travel! Lots of hours

    Cons

    Not really any cons besides lots of layoffs, once I got the layoff notice I tried to get into new positions within the company but never worked out even though I have lots of experience

    Pros

    There are some really talented people at SAIC. There is a depth of knowledge that you can tap when needed. Management is generally very good. Ethics are strongly reinforced.

    Cons

    Stock isn't going anywhere any more. When it was an employee-owned company, there were many employee perks, such as a fitness center, cafeteria, good offices and equipment, good health benefits. Most of these have been eliminated, or reduced to be just in line with industry. SAIC's new line management structure removes line managers so far from employees that they don't even know each other. How can line managers find work opportunities for employees when they don't even know the skills of those employees?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your line management structure, put the personal touch back into the work culture.

    Pros

    Opportunities to work numerous tasks, with different people, learning along the way.

    Cons

    After the company went public, then split it has been a difffernt place to work. More on you to find work for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look deeper into the well of on board personnel instead of hiring your buddies.
