Pros

It is a stable job but you will sacrifice salery for it. I have been working for SAIC for nearly 5 years now and have just made the cost of living increase nessary to stay where I was to begin with was in the 2% range on salery. This company is more focused on getting more out of there employees and paying them less that rentention. Example you are required to log any comp time you work but you will not see any overtime pay, they simply charge the gov. for your hours and pocket the money not very ethical if you ask me.

Cons

Very underpaid. I'm in the lower 2% of comparable experience.

Advice to Management

Compensate for experience and performance not who kisses the most butt.

    Pros

    SAIC is a large, employee owned company with lots of opportunities. They provide many free online courses through their SAIC university, as well as paid courses. Many jobs for intel folks, transitioning military. My work-life balance is great due to an understanding manager and customer.

    Cons

    Job security is contingent on the contract you are working on. If the contract goes, you may very well be looking for another job. The key is to get on a long-term contract. SAIC has no clear career paths for professional growth. Your experience at SAIC has much to do with the business unit and division you are in.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on growing the people you have.
