    I have been working at SAIC

    Pros

    Great minds and opportunities to work on projects that matter. SAIC as a company is a great place to work and for the most part a great set of people to spend a career with.

    Cons

    If you are not experienced in your poistion or move up through the ranks do not expect any asssitance. Whether you like it or not you will need to adapt and roll with the failures as most times your management has little or no time to train/ mentor you in the ways of your new position. This can be very difficult if its a job you have never performed. Also be aware that despite how competitive they are saying their pay methodology is. it is closely guarded and come to my discovery very suspect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more active role in your employees making sure they are understanding something or in need of guidance is not micro-managing. and if you are going to promote an inexpereinced worker please do so fairly with compensation that somewhat matches his/her coworkers. Discover of big gaps in pay can be the most demotivating information an employee can receive.

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment. Not micro-managed

    Cons

    Human Resource detpartment is really bad

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to promote the right people to management positions. Mid level management is protecting their own and not promoting promising talent. Its being run as a body shop and the people who work at SAIC low and mid level are people who will never get hired elsewhere
