Great company that takes care of its people

Network Engineer (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA (US)

I have been working at SAIC full-time for more than 3 years

Pros- Company has a strong network of people with technical skills & people that genuinely care about doing right and performing well.
- Salary / Benefits are comparable to others in the industry
- From my own experience, managers trust the employees to perform their jobs; I have been afforded the opportunity on several occasions to find ways to improve my assignments / tasks to make the customer happy & to make our system work more effectively.
- From my personal experience, I get to travel quite frequently
- Although contracting is not very secure, I have seen the company take care of its employees even after a contract on which they were working either expired or failed to be renewed. This develops a trust between the employee & the company.

Cons- Since I started working just over 3 years ago, we have had 3 different CEOs, and are now discussing a company split (although this may actually be a Pro in the long-term); Unsure how to feel about upper management.
- Like with any contracting job, job security is not as strong as on the government / private sector
- Does not seem like there is much room for upward mobility; from personal experience, if you work harder and outperform, you will be rewarded no more & no less than those that do just enough to get by (this is how I have seen it under my new manager --the old one was a little more fair / aware enough to reward those that went above & beyond). This just makes the employees either lose motivation, or simply start looking elsewhere where their hard work will be more appreciated

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep stressing the importance of Ethics --it keeps people aware, accountable, and develops trust between coworkers and the company; Be more open about future of contracts, find more ways to reward those that you know are valuable to the company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Worst job experience of my 20 year career

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at SAIC full-time for less than a year


Pros: None that I can recall. Cons: As of January 2013, the health benefits they offer will become nearly useless. If you don't have a billing code, then you don't receive… Advice to Senior Management: Weed out your lazy middle management and "wake up!" the upper management.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
