    Pros

    Good benefits and lots of opportunities to expand your skill set.

    Cons

    Working and knowing the local HQ folks in DC was a big benefit but if you were away from center stage it was hard to position yourself for advancement as the smaller office was overrun by nepotism. Family members, high school friends and long time buddies got the bigger benefits if you were an outsider and not from the local area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break up the small town mentality, good ol boy system and allow for new insights and new blood to enter into management and minimize the group think process.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at SAIC in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very pleasant interviewing process. Was thorough on what was expected in job requirements and very professional interview.
    It did take a while filling out all the necessary paperwork and all the back and forth emails. I suppose that is to be expected if you work for the government and have to have a security clearance.
    The last interview was a little intimidating because they asked me every question in the book about my background and financial history. The lady was very professional and I didn't feel too uncomfortable. I guess those types of experiences are good lessons for future interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • Actually at the initial interview, I was quite pleased with the interview questions. There was no high-pressured trick questions that some interviewer like to play. I value the respect and consideration of a good interviewer who doesn't play head games.
      It was the final interview that was a little more pressured. They ask everything about your background and financial history. It was a good learning experience, as I had never gone through something quite like that before.
