    I worked at SAIC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Highly competent corporate management with desire to meet customer needs. Size of company allows for upward mobility and geographic relocation if desired. Competitive salaries and good benefits. HR department and PMO is strong.

    Cons

    Decentralized management means local team is somewhat isolated and aggressive bidding has created under resourced requirements. Team members can be overwhelmed.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate reach out to lower level managers to provide support and a sense of community. Especially customer site based teams that can get isolated and lose company connection.
