I have been working at SAIC full-time for more than 5 years

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.

    Too Much Monkey Business

    I worked at SAIC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Many positions are full or partial telework, which is a major benefit if you live in the traffic-congested Washington, DC, area.

    Cons

    Astonishingly incompetent and unqualified supervisors/managers. This company is undergoing a much-publicized split; the current atmosphere is unstable and job cuts are happening every few weeks. The health insurance plan was recently whittled down to bare bones to the point where employees are better off finding their own insurance plans outside the company.
