I have been working at SAIC full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Cutting edge research and engineering contracts and projects.
The thing they value the most is their employees and the company is largely employee owned.
The pay is competitive.
They aren't afraid to give you a big bonus in the form of cash and shares if you are a high performer.

Cons

The benefits are average.
There isn't much opportunity to work from home.
There are fewer engineers and researchers on the board and in upper level management than previously.
Healthcare plans favor those in DC and California. Healthcare plans for those in Texas and Florida should be changed to get more bang for the buck.
You may be under utilized. If you have skills x, y, z management may only let you use x skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are great healthcare providers all over the US. The best ones tend to be local. Focus on adding healthcare providers for more locations.
Force lower management to share skills and resources on their teams when other groups require them.

    I worked at SAIC full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Was for MANY years employee owned, growing, dynamic, lots of room to change roles and be promoted. Use to SAIC University, with lots of training options, offered great benefits, including good matching 401K. Salaries competitive. Most importantly, there have always been many smart, motivated, terrific people to work alongside! This was a GREAT place to work.

    Cons

    Gradual slide since ousting founder, IPO not a success, poor succession planning, now the split to two companies and huge layoffs. Corp consolidation resulting in losing amazing employee resources, plus many others jumping off. Constant cost cutting also lead to terrible benefits changes - health insurance is now a CDHP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well, it's too late, but . . . Actually listen to and utilize the employee survey info you spent a lot of money to collect, disallow cliques and favoritism, reward merit instead. Death by a thousand cuts is not a business plan.
