    Great company for defense contractors

    Pros

    Unlike many defense contracting companies that are focused on hiring warm bodies to fill contract positions... in my 10+ years at SAIC, I found it to be a company that actually cares for its customers and employees. For contractors working full-time at a customer site, SAIC provides excellent back-end support and training opportunities, and you actually feel like you're part of the company. You have the tools, resources, & reach-back needed to deliver excellence to your customers; and because "headquarters" understands & appreciates DOD very well, they understand & can be supportive of your daily working environment.

    Cons

    I found that advancement was somewhat predicated on participation in business-development activities.

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, excellent working conditions, good group of collogues, helpful seminars, overall positive company atmosphere.

    Cons

    First of all I was a 25 year veteran of Contracts Management with industry leaders Flour, Parsons, Halliburton, and with the Arabian American Oil Company. So I was thoroughly experienced in both Federal and Commercial Contracts Management. While at SAIC I had Extreme difficulty keeping up with daily assignments in a timely fashion. It seemed as though the office was months behind in Contracts and Procurement facilitation when I arrived. The Database was not conducive to allowing for protocols input to be accomplished expeditiously and comprehensively. Constantly rushed to produce results within goals that were impossible to meet considering that I was making am effort to keep up with the daily input and also working to bring previous work up to speed. And, as a result, pertinent documentation and approvals required to meet the Federal Acquisition Regulations criteria were not met. I do not know how Federal Audits were able to be accomplished successfully in this environment. I did request temporary administrative assistance and was denied. As such my decision to seek other avenues of employment at the time.
