    I have been working at SAIC full-time

    Pros

    In times when integrity and care for the employee base are most required, they stood strong.

    Cons

    Pay is significantly less than industry norm.

    Advice to Management

    Nobody's job is as simple as an outsider may think it to be. As such, I do not have access to management's scope to offer advice or critique how they perform their jobs.

    Pros

    100% telework, flexible schedule, if you do your job management doesn't bother you too much.

    Cons

    A poorly funded contract led to way too much downsizing, we've proven our value add over the past 18 months and are now starting to rebuild.

    Advice to Management

    Morale is all important

    I worked at SAIC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of structure and ability to provide training. Its a big company, so they are used to having to train people to all kinds of roles. You can learn a lot, see a lot, and contribute to very interesting projects. Its a very stable place, and a highly respected.

    Cons

    A large amount of the work is in highly regulated areas. That means you can have to deal with a lot of regulation and compliance work. Some people find that frustrating.

    I worked at SAIC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was competitive. On-boarding was fast.

    Cons

    Benefits were sub-par.

    Didn't have an onsite manager so I had to report to someone halfway across the country who knew nothing about the contract I was on and provided no assistance. The contract wasn't a big money maker so effort on SAIC's behalf was non-existent. Worst DoD contractor to work for.

    Open work culture
    Salary at par with the industry

    Cons

    Profit sharing with employees in the form of bonus would be nice.
