Pros

The company offers structures that give you the possibility of great flexibility - the standard hours can vary for salaried positions (with full benefits when you are scheduled for at least 30 hours a week), and there are other kinds of work status that allow for professional work with limited hours. Actually doing that, of course, depends on your supervisor and client. The nature of the work is totally dependent on the client, but there is plenty of satisfying and rewarding work, and there is usually a good deal of horizontal mobility.

Cons

The company used to be really fragmented. Senior management seems to be really focused on changing that, but I still sometimes see a culture that is focused on doing the best for one division. That's not always bad, but it does mean that project managers sometimes sit on people or resources that could be better used.

    Pros

    Good environment at the local level, opportunity to work on very different types of projects. Local management recognizes talented people and tries to encourage their growth. Certain divisions dedicated to providing top quality CMMI Level 5 work.

    Cons

    Company seems to have lost interest in capturing work in San Diego area. All HR functions are focused around the beltway facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that there are SAIC facilities throughout the world, and since it's a technical company, distributed project teams can actual maximize your talent pool. Don't put on job help seminars only in VA on East coast time, remember there are employees everywhere.
