Current Employee - Project Manager in Alexandria, VA
No opinion of CEO

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.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.


  2. "Good work environment; some mixed messages"

    Pros

    Good pay, good work environment, flexible hours if necessary, interesting work, ability to work on other projects if so desired.

    Cons

    Tons of ethics training but occassionally forced to do something like charge work to a different charge number; mainly due to slowness of management to get around to doing things. They say they always want you to be ethical but their real goal is to keep the customer happy even if the customer is shooting themselves in the foot.

    Advice to Management

    Don't preach it unless you're going to practice it. Try for more of a balance between bending over backwards for the customer and supporting your work force.
