    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, matching 401k, Health insurance is OK. Good benefits if you live in San Diego or Virginia, I hear.

    Cons

    Zero opportunity for advancement. Unprofessional office environment. Only seemed to worry about next contract opportunity. Cut corners a lot in order to fulfill contract deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't seem to care about employees unless its a negative focus. Focus on the positives of your workers, and acknowledge thinking outside the box.

    I worked at SAIC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    SAIC gets some amazing projects and you get to work on really innovative tasks. Management was very supporting of initative, and I had all the IRAD budget I could want. Our team was small and very responsive. Everyone of the group was a professional and needed a minimum of supervision. SAIC is employee-owned and acts like it.

    Cons

    Each business unit is its own little kingdom with no unifying structure at all - any project that can make a profit will be pursued. SAIC's main business model is to put "butts in seats" - provide people to staff out large projects.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on what made SAIC great -the people who work here are all you have to sell. Invest in them.
