Pros

Most managers are good people.

Cons

If one does get a bad manager, the leadership is unwilling to do what's necessary to correct the situation .

Advice to Management

It's important to be fair to the employees instead of just covering for the "managers" who may not be performing the tasks that are best for the team.

    Pros

    support from fellow employees, not management

    Cons

    the work environment has changed so much in the past few years. It has gone from a place where people truly loved their jobs and would work untold hours to get the job done right to a place where people want out, do only what is needed and talk down the company. The management that I worked under did not understand our department, the areas we supported and how to support their staff. They were only interested is making sure that their manager thought they were doing it all. If they had to learn the general process of each department then they would be in a better place to make decisions concerning the departments.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should skip levels and have real conversations with employees doing the work on how to get the company back on track. Look at managers who have a history of not working well with their departments.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Company has a good reputation with customers. Fairly simple and effective performance evaluation system. Loads of professional and competent people in the company.

    Cons

    There are two kinds of employees at SAIC: the real employees and the "talent." The talent are those people hired from inside government to work on site with government customers. The "talent" are not really treated like employees. No real career development, training, or corporate attention. The talent are really product that SAIC sells to the customer. And like any product, if there is any problem at all with the product or the contract, the product goes in the dust bin. I've been observing some chilling horror stories about SAIC putting these "talent" employees out on the street with no warning and no mercy, even though these people are qualified to do other open jobs in the company.

    Advice to any one in the government considering taking an SAIC job working in the government: Don't do it. You won't be able to trust the company to take care of you.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your talent. Providing on-site personnel to customers is big part of SAIC's bottom line. It won't take long before word will get around about SAIC treats these people and after that happens, there will be less and less "talent" looking to SAIC.
