  • Health Insurance(78 comments)

    “Very high deductible, out of pocket maximum, and premium when compared to other defense contractors in the area.”

  • 401K Plan(56 comments)

    “SAIC's 401k is through Vanguard. I can attest that SAIC does not match in all fringe packages, but some they do -- albeit, not much...”

    “Not all fringe packages are competitive. As others have mentioned, no sick leave, no paternity leave, no vacation, only comprehensive leave. The...”

    Comprehensive benefits package that does not cut corners. Takes into consideration most extenuating circumstances and is understanding in terms of joining/leaving the company.

    Health insurance through Vanguard, or BCBS. Can even have health insurance for your cat or joke. Also have 401k, and a unique benefit of what essentially boils down to short term disability funds.

    Only health insurance is HSA and it is terrible. If you make too much money they do not contribute as much. Out of pocket maximums and deductibles are also really high. You basically pay for everything.

    Overall SAIC has a fair benefits package. They are working continuously to improve their options and every year we get a bit more added to the plans without a big jump in costs. I'm happy with the offerings.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Principal Systems Administrator in San Diego, California

    My fringe package gives me 6% of my salary towards 401(k), which is pretty respectable. 19 days PTO per year covers both leave and sick time. We went to ten holidays per year a couple of years ago. Overall, I'm happy... nothing spectacular, but better than an awful lot of employers these days.

    Best benefit is the 401k: company matches 50% up to 6%. Good health and dental insurance coverage. Reasonable rates. Worst thing is fewer holidays than other companies.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Software Engineer in Huntsville, Alabama

    The only company perk was the complete lack of caring by any of the employees or management. Everyone was there to sit at their desk, maybe do 20 minutes of work, and leave. So, the bar was very very low and you could generally get away with slacking off all day.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Enterprise Desktop Technician in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii

    College Reimbursement, eLearning, flexible scheduling, Real-Time experience, 401K, medical, dental, leave are the best. The worst is the base pay compensation wasn't the median for Hawaii.
