Pros

SAIC pays me for my skillset better than any other area contractor. Recruiters from other area contractors have confirmed this.

Cons

Too much management on the DC beltway.
Not enough contracts in Latin America.

Advice to Management

Stop bidding so high on new contracts. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

    Pros

    Management is hands-off and allows for self-direction
    5 weeks vacation!
    Incentives for completing certifications and degrees
    Wide variety of projects and tasks

    Cons

    Very uneven performance reviews showing obvious favoritism
    Lots of deadwood middle management and program managers
    Revolving door between company and government employees
    Large numbers of former military commanders trying to run the place like a military command
    Very little opportunity for women to lead or move up

    Advice to Management

    We used to own the place - show us some respect
    The whole world does not revolve around Washington D.C.
    Time to begin diversifying; get all of our eggs out of the DoD basket

    Pros

    Good salary, very flexible hours.

    Cons

    Working at the Towers is the best way to advance. Away from the Towers you aren't visible for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Advance younger people more willing to work hard than older employees who advance just there because of their past military/government success.
