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

Pros

Get to work with extremely talented people who's willing to help as much as they can. Never seen such synergy in the team compare to others. Everyone is a contributor. I realize getting into such a good group can be draw of the luck. During interview, she asked "Do you like being thrown in the volcano on your first day?" This group was known for being overtasked and a stressful environment but as said... it wasn't true at all. I really doubt I'd work with such talented team again in the future.

Cons

I left a company for better pay and medical. SAIC Medical plan sucks! If SAIC manangement is reading this then change it ASAP! You say that it's a fair plan but it's not and you know it! You have the worst benefit compare to ANY company by far. I promise that more people will leave and more negative review will follow. If you ever want to join, make sure to bump $10k for sucky insurance.

Advice to Management

Don't mess with the medical. We all are raising a family and we deserve a fair plan with co-pay..not this ridiculous $3000 deductible, pay 20% of the bill instead of co-pay. I've been with many company and you guys are really screwing on family need... provide a decent medical.

    Great project management and technical depth

    3 CEO's in 4 years, company split resulting in lack of management focus, disconnected systems and lack of process discipline. Not sure there's a plan.

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

    Pros

    Lots of diversity of the work; global opportunities; many subject matter experts; good salary, good benefits (before 2013 anyway).

    Cons

    Grew too big too fast. Now splitting, divesting, lots of layoffs in the restructuring. Upper management has lost sight of base customer expectations. Past ethics issue with a small yet highly visible group has resulted in overboard bureaucracy across the company making project execution difficult and more costly. Too many service centers that force direct personnel to do too much indirect work. Reputation with customers of being too expensive.
