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

    Lots of diversity of the work; global opportunities; many subject matter experts; good salary, good benefits (before 2013 anyway).

    Cons

    Grew too big too fast. Now splitting, divesting, lots of layoffs in the restructuring. Upper management has lost sight of base customer expectations. Past ethics issue with a small yet highly visible group has resulted in overboard bureaucracy across the company making project execution difficult and more costly. Too many service centers that force direct personnel to do too much indirect work. Reputation with customers of being too expensive.

    Pros

    Cutting edge research and engineering contracts and projects.
    The thing they value the most is their employees and the company is largely employee owned.
    The pay is competitive.
    They aren't afraid to give you a big bonus in the form of cash and shares if you are a high performer.

    Cons

    The benefits are average.
    There isn't much opportunity to work from home.
    There are fewer engineers and researchers on the board and in upper level management than previously.
    Healthcare plans favor those in DC and California. Healthcare plans for those in Texas and Florida should be changed to get more bang for the buck.
    You may be under utilized. If you have skills x, y, z management may only let you use x skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are great healthcare providers all over the US. The best ones tend to be local. Focus on adding healthcare providers for more locations.
    Force lower management to share skills and resources on their teams when other groups require them.
