    I worked at SAIC (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had ample freedom to complete tasks. The overtime rush at the end of a contract was fantastic. You could work as many hours as you could. Things may have changed since the company became Leidos

    Cons

    Your job is what you make of it. (Totally not a con)

    Advice to Management

    Who am I to give advice to management? They did the best they could and I quite enjoyed my Program Manager.

    Pros

    Great company to work for IF they don't move you from one company to another.

    Cons

    Worked 8 years for SAIC. Company split and I began working for LEIDOS. Nothing changed. Once SAIC regained the contract, I lost all my time with SAIC and started as a new employee ALL OVER AGAIN to include leave and sick time and my pay was cut.

    I worked at SAIC as an intern

    Pros

    Worked with the government, security clearance, opened many doors for the future. Flexible work schedule (do your 8 hours and 30 minute lunch).

    Cons

    Interns don't get benefits or accrue leave. I was there for 3 years and never received a raise in compensation.

    Advice to Management

    I could have probably advanced, but I changed career focuses once I hit graduate school. There were very few interns in my location, so they do try to keep the ones that have.

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

    Pros

    They have some great people.

    Cons

    When your current assignment expires, there is a good chance you will be laid off within a short time. You always have to look out for a new opportunity well in advance of the current assignment expiriing. Sometimes you will get little to no notice that your assignment is up (for various reasons).

    Advice to Management

    Work out a better continuity for employees.
