    Pros

    The wonderful thing about Scitor is not only the quality and expertise of the people, but the overall attitude of customer service and willingness to help fellow Scitorians. There is / was very little process within the company, so there is / was not a ton of paperwork. Scitor goes over and above for their employees. Great benefits as well.

    Cons

    Not so many cons. Scitor benefits have decreased a bit over the past few years in order to cut back on costs in order to stay competitive, but still has some of the best benefits around.

    Advice to Management

    So far the transition into the SAIC family has been a thoughtful one and as good as could ever be asked for from a company being acquired standpoint. The challenge will be folding Scitor into SAIC, but somehow maintaining the great Scitor culture and attitude customers and employees love so much.

    I worked at Scitor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with people who were dedicated to the company culture. The company was committed to trying to do the right thing for their employees

    Cons

    Changes - both known and unknown due to being acquired caused much angst and uncertainty amongst the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate in a more timely manner regarding issues with clients and upcoming (or lack there of) work assignments.

    Pros

    Great people, world class benefits and ability to make your own decisions without having a bunch of red tape.

    Cons

    Now acquired by SAIC and all the comes along with being part of a big publically owned company. Scitor is no more.

    I have been working at Scitor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pre Acquisition: health benefits, 401k match, flexible leave

    Cons

    Wrap rates too high. Not able to pass on competitive salaries to employees due to high corporate demand for overhead. Overhead folks get free drinks, snacks, etc while directly billable employees get nothing. Scitor is doomed by other companies that offer better salaries and benefits than SAIC (the new owner) based on their over-sized wrap rates

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, it's too late to save Scitor. Hopefully you got paid before you left. My guess is most of the PMs will be let go (and try should because they are awful managers anyway)

    Pros

    Incredible knowledge base and expertise, great work supporting customers. All around a superior company to work for. Very impressive company with fantastic culture that fosters and environment to succeed.

    Cons

    Moving forward following purchase, uncertainty regarding structure and employee make-up of the company. Culture may disappear, as will likely superior benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do good work and remain committed to hiring excellent people. The people are what matter most, without good people doing the work, the company will not succeed.

    Pros

    Great company to work for! I have been treated very well since my employment. Management is very responsive to the needs to each employee.

    Cons

    Need more contracts with the federal government! Certain areas of management is top-heavy.

    I have been working at Scitor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Interesting people, when they hire young - Extremely good benefits (like, I didn't realize how bad everyone else's are in comparison) - Unofficial results-oriented work environment - it's not work from anywhere, but the focus is clearly on getting things done and not when you're physically in the office - a contractor that doesn't compete on cost - it's never the cheapest bid - but on doing the best work, and it shows

    Cons

    - lack of classified network connectivity - relatively flat/unspecific hierarchy makes achieving upwards "mobility" unclear, if not altogether impossible - depending on specific contracts and deadlines, there can be a lot of "down" time with little to do - recent sale to SAIC bodes nothing but ill for the company's culture and compensation

    Advice to Management

    Preserve as much of the existing structure, culture, and compensation as possible while we're integrated into SAIC. I'm not one for company "loyalty," but Scitor really is a cut above, and it will be a shame to lose that distinction.

    Pros

    Good working environment, management expects and lets you do your job without micro-managing. Small amount of corporate overhead work, you can concentrate on customer needs. Great benefits in comparison to others. Very flat organization.

    Cons

    If you are looking for rapid advancement up the corporate ladder this is not the place. Acquisition by SAIC raises a lot of questions on what will happen to salary/benefits.
