Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at SAIC full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Nice selection of direct projects.

Cons

In recent years, focus has been to make this company like any other. Distinctiveness has been rooted out and removed.

Advice to Management

The company is now just like any other defense company. Select new top management who will stay for more than a couple years and can think longer term. The stock price will follow.

    Take more time to visit sites out in the field.

    I worked at SAIC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    laid back local manager
    benefits were decent
    pay was above average for similar jobs in the area

    Cons

    annual raises were pretty skimpy
    the company has had some big ethics issues lately
    divisional management is distant and typically out of touch
    tried to transfer within the company and received little to no help from management/HR with placement, ended up having to quit

    Advice to Management

    compress the management structure
    focus more on your line level employees, management seems out of touch
