Current Employee - Program Manager in Huntsville, AL
Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

Good technical reputation. Opportunity and resources to "redeploy" when work runs out. Diverse kinds of work. Respect for a diverse workforce.

Cons

Mostly defense work in the backlog, but defense work has uncertain prospects. One of the largest defene firms in the country but still learning how to act big.

Advice to Management

Management needs to remember the roots of SAIC - the technical work itself. While management has a primary responsibility to stockholders, it will come out well if the techies continue to be taken care of.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were good. That's what makes it hard to leave.
    Provided necessary tools and equipment to hit the ground running.
    Provided training / classes

    Cons

    Lack of promotion opportunities unless you're a part of the GOBN (Good Ol' Boy's Network). Non-technical managers dictate technical process and procedure.
    No flexibility in work schedule or location unless you're a GOBN.
    Seems management heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Have clear division between technical and non-technical personnel.
    Offer career advancement path during performance review.
    Offer greater life/career balance benefits where appropriate (remote work, flexible hours)

    Pros

    Other than benefits there are no really great reasons to work there. This is my opinion in the matter of which I have been asked.

    Cons

    Well when you have employees who leave the company because the recruiters look outside before looking inside you have a problem.
