Pros

Although SAIC is a large company I thought it had a very high proportion of smart people working for it. By smart I don't mean just book smart, I mean business savvy smart as well.

Cons

I worked in a relatively new business area around business consulting and I think the company was still trying to get its hands around the notion of being consultants rather than delivering a hard product (related to SAIC's roots as a engineering and hard sciences company).

Advice to Management

Be more proactive in advising your clients. Let them hear the bad news from you, not from another consultant group or internal employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There are none. Only if you can't find a job doing anything else anywhere. At least at the St. Louis office. They lie to you on what your job description is when you get there you are doing something completely different.

    Cons

    The lack of professionalism, low employee morale, terrible benefits. Bad management of projects and workers. For a company that requires employees to have security clearances they sure do allow a lot of bad behavior. People throwing stuff, showing up to work drunk/high talking openly about drug use. For have strict dress codes they don't seem to enforce them if you are a woman or minority especially when it comes to piercings and wearing jeans. However this was all at their St. Louis office on Grand Ave. Other offices may be different.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage. C'mon did you even finish high school?
