    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.

    I worked at SAIC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, matching 401k, Health insurance is OK. Good benefits if you live in San Diego or Virginia, I hear.

    Cons

    Zero opportunity for advancement. Unprofessional office environment. Only seemed to worry about next contract opportunity. Cut corners a lot in order to fulfill contract deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't seem to care about employees unless its a negative focus. Focus on the positives of your workers, and acknowledge thinking outside the box.
