    I have been working at SAIC full-time

    Pros

    Have had a long run with the company and not without its rough spots. In the last 2 years many poor managers have been either weeded out or left for other companies. Now government contracts are requiring persons to have degrees and certifications which is making the company look at qualifications rather than who one is related to or grown up with. Larger and more stable contracts are becoming more relevant. Now people can take the time to go to school and get the credentials that can take them beyond contracting. The jobs are really not that hard. Depending on the project, overtime can be exhausting or non-existent.

    Cons

    The overall project manager can make the work environment relaxed or unbearable. The good ole boy club is not dead yet. Ex-marines and navy submariners control most of the management positions. Relation will get preferential treatment as with women with above average looks. They just have to show up to work to keep a job. Government employees view the people doing the work as second (management) and third class (workers) citizens. Government bureaucracy makes everything take longer than it should. Government employees typically demand work done outside of contract specifications. The government employee is always right.

    Advice to Management

    Management is making improvements but it comes only as government contracts mandate the change. Management needs to persuade the contract owners to support SAIC more with infrastructure and put a limit on the bureaucracy so that the work can get done more efficiently.

    I worked at SAIC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    To have employment, benefits, and income.

    Cons

    Chain of command overload, with supervisors/leads, task managers, program managers, and service line leads, ........

    Advice to Management

    The realignment of employee titles and department service lines seem to be a hit and miss, reevaluate those decisions with supervisors that actually know the employee.
    Offer pay increases and funds to train current employees, verse new hires with less experience.
