    Pros

    Plenty of good people in the company who want to do things right and do the right thing.

    Cons

    Process controls everything. Doing the simplest of things is tedious and time consuming. Company processes are too often farmed out to third-party providers.

    Advice to Management

    Bring your business processes in house. Streamline processes. Get rid of unnecessary tedium and rules.

    Large company that seems to fall out of touch with its employees when revisiting benefits packages, which is average for a company of this size.

    Pros

    Program managers seem to care about your career goals and work to help you get there.

    Cons

    Service lines burden collaboration from inter-disciplinary groups by making incredibly difficult to affect change.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for better collaboration within programs. Currently, our program hardware engineers have to go to the government to request changes from the software engineers - requiring about twice the actual time and frustration it would take to complete the task.

    Pros

    SAIC has great flexibility in work schedules and locations despite being 90% in Federal Contracting. They offer competitive salaries, good benefits, and lots of opportunity within the company for growth.

    Cons

    SAIC's main locations for tech jobs are all on the East Coast. They have locations worldwide, but those are specialty contracts for mostly non-technical roles. I'd love to travel more with SAIC.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your employees and get rid of under-performers. It's hard to maintain motivation if you get rewarded the same as those around you who are slacking .
