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

    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.

    Pros

    People seem nice and management seems to care. Pay is good and benefits are not bad.

    Cons

    Attitude of we take care of our own is debatable. If your contract ends you better have something lined up quick. You will get a layoff notice.
    Benefits are not the best.
