    I have been working at SAIC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good team, but that's a very specific situation. The work was fun.

    Cons

    Terrible benefits. 401k is mediocre. Bonuses small to nonexistent. Health insurance is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Lack of communication is the real problem here. Upper management has reason to keep things quiet to keep stock price up, at the expense of trust and flexibility from underlings.

    Pros

    If you have a good manager and your organization does well, they take good care of outstanding employees. Get hooked up with a bad manager and life can be heck until you are gone.

    Cons

    Management can often be inconsistent, especially since they went public and even more so since they split into two companies. Attitude at many levels is half as good as it was 10 years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees as they near the end of their time with you. Have seen too many rudely forced out the door.

    I worked at SAIC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very supportive of employees, willing to work hard to listen to and respond to issues and resource needs, including organizational backing and support

    Cons

    Going through growing pains with the Leidos split and implementation of their service line matrix. These should be completed by now and supporting employee development.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the "hands-on" and "small-business" approach to staff and implementing support services, and continue to listen and involve employee at all levels.

    Pros

    Professional Company with a great environment for personal and professional growth. Great Mentor-Ship program. Great Redeployment program retaining exceptional talent pool.

    Cons

    Many corporate changes since the split of the company especially with the loss of benefits. Change in management structure which can be confusing and not always beneficial if you work directly for the customer.

    Pros

    Your inner circle or network will take care of you. You will always find funding and/or other job opportunities if you really know someone and/or part of a family member who works currently within the company

    Cons

    When your tasking is expiring, you will either be let go or reassigned to another project due to customer does not want to renew or extend due to the lack of your company over spending their original tasking.

    Advice to Management

    Micromanage your personnel properly. Employees know what you do, but vice versa you do not. Don't reassign someone thinking they only do one job while you actually do more due to not hiring the required personnel that was written within the contract.
