Pros

If you want to work with really intelligent and passionate people, SAIC is a good option, especially if you have an energy, environment, government, military, or IT background.

Cons

The tone and feel of the company (at least my little corner of it) has gone drastically downhill in the past few years...basically since it became a publicly traded company. It's less supportive of individuals, and more focused on metrics and numbers now.

    Pros

    Very ethical. Focus is on customer as well as employee excellence. Job performance counts. Most managers will help career development within their contract and overhead budget constraints.

    Cons

    SAIC sells services primarily to Department of Defense. Longevity is primarily based on your ability to stay billable on a contract. Most service contracts are 1-5 years. Nothing wrong with Defense work. Just need to understand the nature of the business.

    Pros

    Good corporate structure and plenty of offices nationwide. SAIC always seems to get the big wins on contracts and should be even more competitive after the company splits in 2013. The management is always focused.

    Cons

    Can change projects without warning, so you need to be flexible. 2013 insurance isn't the best but is trying to be competitive thanks to Obamacare. Overall, not much to complain about. If you bring more to the table (degrees, certifications) you'll be better compensated.
