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

Great people, interesting work, constantly changing contracts.

Cons

Since the split the company is not employee oriented. It's become just another place to work.

Advice to Management

Listen to the people on your teams and incorporate their feedback.

    Pros

    Extremely nice people to work with, but really dependent on your specific team and manager. The work is rarely very stressful and work-life balance is great.

    Cons

    It's great when your team is getting contracts, but not when you're scrambling to get the next job lined up. Big company that mainly works with the government, so lots of bureaucracy and security procedures to go through.

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

    Pros

    when your group wins work, you're busy and billable, and there are opportunities to learn

    Cons

    poor collegiality between staff
    overly secretive even when the work does not require it
    company is very silo-ed, intracompany work impossible or very hard to do
    management has zero sense of loyalty to staff
    all overhead generated from years of being >75% billable meant nothing when we lost our contract
    i was given zero time to look for new work and company recruiters (emailed every single one of them, not one replied) were 100% useless
    i was kept on staff but received no pay when we lost our contract (ultimately, i left the company)

    Advice to Management

    take care of your staff or other companies will
