    Pros

    SAIC is the best place to work. All the people over here are friendly and they create an opportunity for learning

    Cons

    Need to contact all the departments if some thing is needed. SAIC is so big it will take to get things done.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits, Reputation, Entrepreneurship, Training, Domains. Leaders were empowered to earn new business and to find better ways to serve their customers. Team members felt like they were contributing.

    Cons

    We had a lack of central representation of management. While our VP was great and he came out about every other month, the local office had no connection to our program. It would have been good to have a local representation of our leadership.

    Advice to Management

    No suggestions really, but I know that things worked well as SAIC. I hope that Leidos continues with the same drive and spirit.

    I worked at SAIC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company is large enough to provide ample resources to their employees. The Matrix system works for employees with unique skills.

    Cons

    Sharp decline in ingenuity and out of the box thinking. Result has been a downfall in new contract wins for projects with heavy design criteria. SAIC outsources the ingenuity to small businesses, but takes ownership of design. The matrix system has devastated the connection between employee and senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Shake up the management gene pool. Promote within instead of looking outside the company to fill the management roles.

    I have been working at SAIC full-time

    Pros

    They leave you alone to do your job. Work shifts are flexible.

    Cons

    Supervisors lack leadership skills. Our boss has no degree or technical skills. She doesn't respond to e-mails and she changes people's shifts without telling them. She is also unapproachable because she will fire people at the drop of a hat. Not a good situation.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire supervisors with no REAL supervisory background! Don't hire people with no IT background or college degree to supervise IT people with college degrees.
