Pros

Sense that management cares about the employee, not just the bottom line. They are also committed to ensuring that employees have the opportunity to take other positions when they come available.

Cons

Communication lapses. Sometimes there seems to be a delay or lack of communication between the two management teams supporting the employees.

Advice to Management

Optimize communication between the contract and company side of the leadership team to enhance the level of comfort the employees feel towards the competency of the leadership.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Very flexible work place (this is really up to my division - not the company as a whole).
    Good benefits.

    Cons

    Poor salaries for newer / younger employees. Times were much better in the years before the company went public, and the raises the older workers got were MUCH higher. Therefore, there is now a de-facto two-tier pay system - one for those there before the company went public, and one for those who began their career afterwards. The older employers make a good 30% premium all other things remaining equal.

    Advice to Management

    Start working on removing some of the dead weight in middle management and the large amount of poor performers who've been feeding at the trough since 911 bonanza began ten years ago. Many of these workers do not carry their weight, and are becoming a burden on those that perform.

    SAIC (and all the other big miliatary / government contractors) are going to run into trouble as the technical talent moves to smaller / younger companies where they're not required to subsidize the large salaries and expensive health bennies of the older workers.
