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

Pros

Decent pay and benefits for starting out in the industry. Good co-workers and plenty of exciting and cutting edge projects have be awarded to this company. I've been to several of the semi annual work socials which helps build the company morale.

Cons

Health care coverage has gone down the toilet and with it, the morale. Business units seem to be detached almost like they are different companies. Upper management seems numb to employees needs. Turnover rate has since double since the high-deductible health care has gone into effect. In my 3 years of experience at this company, all of my 2-3% 15 month raises have since been nullified by 1. The high deductible health care and 2. The government's 2 percent income tax increase which went into effect in 2013.

Advice to Management

Hear out your subordinates and reward them for their hard work. When your company is making great revenue a, your employees should get the recognition, raises and benefits they earn. In turn, you will see the company swell with people who want to stay rather than leave as they are doing now.

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

    Pros

    SAIC pay scale is quite good for mid to upper level employees. Good bonus amounts and benefits. Ability to have stock options as well.

    Cons

    Treat lower level employees as revenue generators only. Could care less about these employees and have lowered benefits for these employees while increasing compensation for managers

    Advice to Management

    getting a bad reputation of not taking care of customer needs and being too greedy


  2. "Solid job"

    Solid job with a variety of different tasks that can be done. They seem to be very open to your trying different positions. Nice group of people to be around.

    Cons

    Does not seem to reward the workers for a good job done. Easy to fall through the cracks and not get noticed.
