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

Pros

If you want to work with really intelligent and passionate people, SAIC is a good option, especially if you have an energy, environment, government, military, or IT background.

Cons

The tone and feel of the company (at least my little corner of it) has gone drastically downhill in the past few years...basically since it became a publicly traded company. It's less supportive of individuals, and more focused on metrics and numbers now.

    Pros

    Great project management and technical depth

    Cons

    3 CEO's in 4 years, company split resulting in lack of management focus, disconnected systems and lack of process discipline. Not sure there's a plan.

    Former Employee - Project Control Analyst

    I worked at SAIC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of diversity of the work; global opportunities; many subject matter experts; good salary, good benefits (before 2013 anyway).

    Cons

    Grew too big too fast. Now splitting, divesting, lots of layoffs in the restructuring. Upper management has lost sight of base customer expectations. Past ethics issue with a small yet highly visible group has resulted in overboard bureaucracy across the company making project execution difficult and more costly. Too many service centers that force direct personnel to do too much indirect work. Reputation with customers of being too expensive.
