    I worked at SAIC (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay rate is much higher than normal employees get. But since you can get laid-off just the same, there is no difference in job security.

    Cons

    You are subject to the same layoffs as regular employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees employed. Don't just use them on a project and then discard them after giving them 2 weeks to find a job on their own.

    I have been working at SAIC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fair salary, flex work, stock options and good stock price. Telework is the norm. Great if you have a busy schedule.

    Cons

    Nowhere to go career-wise. Good ol' boy network. If you don't have military background, you won't be taken seriously. So many real estate and OH cutbacks that you'll be working from home and demoted before you know it.
