    I worked at SAIC

    Pros

    Formerly an Employee-owned Company; founded by Dr Beyster; deep technical capabilities.

    Cons

    Old SAIC abandoned the Employee-ownership model in an attempt to unlock value, in the process unbinding the employees and the special sauce from the company's bones.

    Current Employee - Senior Analyst in McLean, VA (US)

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

    Pros

    Lots of plans for part timers: consulting employee, straight consultants, reduced workweek, etc.

    Cons

    These jobs are great to add expansion capability to the company but when work is tight these employees don't get any.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the part timers in mind when you dole out work - if you want the surge capability you have to be somewhat fair when times are tight

    I worked at SAIC

    Pros

    Good vacation and 401 contributions. I treated them fairly; they did the same to me. Felt like I was working in a class organization.

    Cons

    Training sometimes got shortchanged due to budget constraints. OK if that happens one year, but 2-3 years in a row.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since I left, SAIC split into two companies with Leidos taking a large share of the work. Don't know if any advice is worthwhile at this stage.
