    Positive Outlook

    I worked at SAIC as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -High pay for a college graduate student
    -More overtime hours than regular hours (7 day work week/15 hours a day
    -Generously reimbursed for use of personal vehicle
    -Loved the job and the people I worked for/with

    Cons

    -Lots of temp contracts but few permanent entry-level positions
    -Temp work will most likely not lead to permanent work
    -No real benefits other than employee stock purchasing plan
    -Prepare to spend a lot of time in traffic and long country highways

    Advice to Management

    While I understand that the company makes a lot of temporary hires to work on special projects as a strategy for cost efficiency the company should use these projects as an opportunity to observe potential candidates for permanent employment.
