    I worked at SAIC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    In the beginning the company was employee owned. Nothing positive to say now.

    Cons

    Recently split off and is currently going through rounds of mass layoffs. Everyone is trying to save their own jobs, so unless you're one of the decision makers you're likely to next on the list. Even if you have coverage on a contract. They are trying to get cheaper workers on their contracts.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to caring for your employees.

    "My experience with SAIC was in an HR role. I resigned solely because of how dishonest the entire department was."

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

    Pros

    I sincerely have nothing positive to say regarding SAIC as a whole or even just our Business Unit. I am an honest individual and with my role employees trusted those in HR. I couldn't stand how dishonestly the entire department handled so many important issues or "swept them under the rug".

    Cons

    There were no values or morals throughout the company.

    Advice to Management

    "Treat others the way you want to be treated"...the Golden Rule
