    I have been working at SAIC full-time

    Pros

    *stability *supportive leadership *no expectation of employee involvement in activities outside of work (experienced this at another gov contractor in the area) *alternative work schedule

    Cons

    *health coverage basically equates to a HSA *typical drawbacks of government work *no profit sharing bonus *basically no bonus

    Advice to Management

    Being hired and/or having years of service should not be enough to keep your job. Spend more for fewer actual value producing employees and let go of dead weight. Termination should be a concern for people who do not do their jobs.
