    Pros

    Good benefits and lots of opportunities to expand your skill set.

    Cons

    Working and knowing the local HQ folks in DC was a big benefit but if you were away from center stage it was hard to position yourself for advancement as the smaller office was overrun by nepotism. Family members, high school friends and long time buddies got the bigger benefits if you were an outsider and not from the local area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break up the small town mentality, good ol boy system and allow for new insights and new blood to enter into management and minimize the group think process.

    Pros

    Very ethical company and I was compensated very well. I enjoyed the work, my peers and supervisors. Even as an MBA, SAIC put me through various training courses.

    Cons

    I was a sub another contractor, which caused frequent stability issues. SAIC took care of me, but I did not see any long term opportunities unless I was willing to relocate. Another opportunity came along before the discussion really moved to that level.

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

    Pros

    -Patient management and teams that are willing to work with employees to increase their skill base
    -Got to work on a wide array of different projects while learning different software and systems
    -Free coffee in kitchens
    -Good size teams that are able to support their members
    -Decent length of contracts so you have enough time to get things done right

    Cons

    -Like most places some managers could be bad and would either micro manage or neglect aspects of a project
    -Salary could have been better
    -Interns are under utilized until they start full time work.
    -One project I worked on had too much complexity in it's architecture and had a stagnant atmosphere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Interns want more real world work and can do more for the company than you normally realize.

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

    Pros

    Lots of upward mobility, respected my supervisors and executive leadership team, was happy to come to work, I worked there 5 years and it was a great experience.

    Cons

    Worked mainly on government contracts and they come and go so job security was sometimes iffy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would more fully develop the mentorship program. I had mentors within the company (unorganized) and their advice was very helpful in my career path.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great pay. They are working a lot harder to keep seasoned employees that lose coverage to make sure that they are covered somewhere else.

    Cons

    Promotions are slow, and we just lost our commuter incentive for taking public transportation. :(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a little more time to listen to those on the front lines. What you hear from management may not be what is reality
