    Pros

    A new matrix structure and lean construct make the new SAIC Inc more competitive. Extremely employee friendly promoting an entrepreneurial type culture.

    Cons

    Medical insurance degraded significantly post ACHA VS pre-2011. Depending on the service line/matrix structure you belong, the amount of funding for continuing education varies.

    Pros

    Talented team members from which one can share and learn. I've been rehired five times.

    Cons

    The nature of contract employment is that if your contract is up, it's up, and you have to find another position, hopefully close to where you live.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Employee owners are happy.

    I have been working at SAIC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are good - on par with other large defense contractors. very successful winning new business. Several successful large programs as prime contractor. Large range of technical skill sets represented. Largely reasonable and competent mid to sr level mgmt.

    Cons

    Ever since going public a few years ago, company focus on short term earnings. Increasing levels of centralization and cost cutting makes company more efficient on paper, but diminishes staff motivation & sense of self-direction. People are being stretched thinner and expected to do more. In the push to aggressively win new business, execution could get pushed to the breaking point.

    Advice to Management

    Don't kill the goose that laid the golden egg. Company risks becoming another large, impersonal defense contractor in the push to make Wall Street happy for another week. Or, semi-happy - stock performance hasn't been great.

    "SAIC: DC or Defense"

    Pros

    The benefits, as well as the security of government contracts. You can buy all the benefits and insurance you could possibly need for a married couple for <USD250 per month. We're talking about millions in life insurance, AD&D insurance, great medical/dental, the works. Also, if you land on a team working on a multi-year government contract

    Cons

    You have to love working in the defense industry, or live in the DC area, otherwise there is very little for you. If you *don't* love working in defense, and you want to work/stay at SAIC, then you *must* live in the DC area, if you want to land on a non-defense government contract.

    Advice to Management

    None. They are too successful to listen to me.
