    Pros

    Management team was very much pro-employee
    Employee focused
    Benefits were good

    Cons

    Contract environemnt makes it difficult for a good company to retain its competitiveness. DoD and NASA contracts keep telling companies to cut costs, those cost cutting measures impact benefits and morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more non-government contracts.

    I have been working at SAIC full-time

    Pros

    Salary wise SAIC pays pretty good. The benefits are pretty much the industries standard. SAIC pretty much takes care of their employees.

    Cons

    SAIC will rarely try to compete with a counter offer. Pretty much a take it or leave it attitude. I would have liked to see more appreciation from upper management.

    Very proactive project mangers, company works to ensure all projects run smoothly

    Cons

    Contracting work, it always sucks when funding runs out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    prepare for the funding lows, so you don't have to lose so many good employees. . All you skilled workers in the Security Surveillance field now work for your competitors.

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

    Pros

    One of the nice things about working at SAIC among many is that they are very flexible with schedules. My current manager understands the importance of family and when time off is needed, there is never any questions as long as there is coverage.

    Cons

    Sometimes management does not see all of the hard work that the employees put into their positions due to the fact that they went to a Matrix style organization. And because of this, employee's can sometimes feel as though they are not a valued asset to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the business unit management style of SAIC past. This Matrix style service line management is not a good fit for our type of business.

    I worked at SAIC full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A large company with room for advancement and many locations to work at. Benefits are decent. Pay is comparable.

    Cons

    A large number of layoffs within the past two years. Company has gone out of their way to cut costs, starting at the employee level. This actual company is less than two years old. It split from Leidos in 2013. Leidos is the original SAIC, founded by Dr. Robert Beyster.
