    Pros

    Great people. Great benefits. They try to provide job security in a tough, contract-based atmosphere.

    Cons

    Sometimes the tradeoff between job security and reduced compensation/reduced hours. But I think that is more about our current federal government needing to reduce costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you do. Taking care of the people at client sites is what gives SAIC an edge over other contractors.

    Good employer to get your feet wet

    Pros

    Lots of good people working on meaningful projects that matter on a global scale. Good work / life balance for the most part

    Cons

    The company seems to be more concerned with their shareholders than their employees since going public. They say they value their employees but all they care about is the bottom line.

    Pros

    Friendly employees and decent pay. Great intern retreat in D.C. Hands on experience and sponsored security clearance. Learned alot about the company and the type of work they do. Unless your placed in D.C or Maryland you wont have alot of other interns in the area.

    Pros

    Dedication to ethical behavior in the work place and with our customers
    Commitment to excellence in execution and providing the customer more than expected
    Fair compensation
    Good internal communications up and down

    Cons

    SAIC is a large company with lots of internal divisions and sub divisions making it difficult to stay internally connected - our challenge is to be ONE SAIC and we have to work at it every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remain focused on making a difference for the Nation and you will keep SAIC on the right track. I am pleased that our priorities begin with the safety and success of our warfighters and our citizens.
