I worked at SAIC full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There are many talent people with high level skills. The job training program is good. It is a well established company with many offers to the industries.

Cons

Job is not very secured and stable. The contract based business model make their employees venerable to layoff when the projects end. The management team has less interested to keep their talents.

Advice to Management

Develop some real products that will keep the business stable like Apple and Microsoft. Try to diversify its services to be more compatible and salable.

    I have been working at SAIC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Large company with lots of oppunities to move around, and has offices in just about every state and country in the world

    Cons

    Health care this last year. It was like taking a $10,000 pay cut

    Advice to Management

    Restore the health care plans you offer in previous years. Under the current system, employees are shouldering greater and greater costs and we are not seeing an increase in income to cover it. Since Jan 2012, I have over $5,000 in medical bills not covered by SAIC health plan.

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

    Pros

    If you find an interesting project, the work can be a lot of fun. And there are lots of smart people here to work with and learn from.

    Cons

    If your program ends, you're pretty much on your own to find something else, the "redeployment" program notwithstanding. Since we went public, its gotten steadily worse, with benefits gradually eroding as well.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that people are not line replaceable units. It is far more cost effective to keep existing employees, even including some retraining, than it is to lay them off and then hire a new person.
