    "Now that the company is splitting up, the SAIC half has potential. Avoid the other half, Leidos, like the plague."

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

    Pros

    Smart people, some great leaders, good contracts. Good benefits, nice facilities and opportunities to advance if you're willing to crush other people to do it.

    Cons

    Politics and a legacy culture based on cutthroat competition and an attitude of 'get ahead at any cost.' Too much emphasis on 'do as I say, not as I do' from a few top managers. Very little loyalty from senior management to long-term, mid-level employees. The Board is more interested in feathering their own nest than taking care of the company and its people.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. Trust your subordinates. You've hired people for their subject matter expertise; use it. Have some loyalty to those employees who have put their entire lives into SAIC. Don't just toss them aside after 35+ years with the company...that kind of lead-pipe capitalism is ultimately self-defeating.

    Corporate Management, listen to those within the other levels of Management when making management decision for the overall Company.
