    I worked at SAIC full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, mostly good people, good training programs

    Cons

    New benefit plan stinks (basically no benefits until you meet your deductible), upper management cannot be trusted. Stock prices have plummeted. Many layoffs but laid off the wrong people. SSC is worthless (purchasing, HR, security) and should go back to the BU's,

    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 ManagementAdvice

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