    Pros

    Good, pay, benefits and their are some good people that are genuine and decent.

    Cons

    They really do not care about anything but their bottom line and ability to just make money. Like most government contractors. The company is at mercy of government control. Everyone is disposable. If your comfortable with that then your in the right place. When it comes down to it. No matter what they suck up to government, at any cost. They have a big dose of karma coming.

    Advice to Management

    If you tell your employee something, follow thru with it and be honest with them. Do not lie to their face and phone. Be true to your word have morals and respect for yourself and company. If your employees treated the company, like the company treats the employee. They would not have success and the company would find itself irrelevant. No communication or just bluntly lieing to employees is not formula for success.

    Pros

    Reasonable work schedule with good benefits.

    Cons

    A well known defense contractor with a good name, however your success will depend on location. SAIC primes 90% of contracts, but most of those are in the DC/VA area. If you're in a subcontract position career growth may be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management from within vice retired brown shoe officers looking to supplement their pensions.
