    Pros

    SAIC is a very comfortable place to work in. You would never have to spend more than 9 hours in office. In case you do work in shifts that ends at 10:30 in the night, you get 300-600Rs every day. The food here is very good and its FREE. The compensation is extremely good and is definitely better than any software giant in India except for the global biggies like google, Microsoft and Intel. The head count in India is low and that is one of the primary reasons you are given a lot of importance in the company. The people in the senior management are really cool and very approachable. Its a Fortune 200 company, so obviously all the systems/policies are in place. Very good for married people looking to settle in bangalore/Noida. Growth is Superb.

    Cons

    The company basically caters to US Defense and other government bodies, so it does not publicizes itself and its indian head count being less, not many know about this company. So the pride associated deteriorates.
    No long term visibility
    Very little Onsite opportunities
    Lack of trainings in certain technologies, as participants would be low.

    Advice to Management

    Do some more offshoring, get us more clients.

    Pros

    > Free food and lots of other benefits
    > Fantastic work-life balance and very friendly management.
    > Good support from onshore colleagues
    > If you are married and want to live a peaceful life then SAIC is one of the best place in India. You can expect L2 level of support job, onsite opportunities (for specific programs).

    Cons

    > No exposure to Engineering project
    > No vision from higher management resulting in loosing good contracts

    Advice to Management

    You guys really need to understand how to retain existing projects and get new one by having a long term vision.

    Pros

    -salary
    -job requirements (the job is not a difficult one if you come in with an I.T. background)
    -annual raises (GREAT)

    Cons

    -detachment from the company (as we work on a contract basis, we work at the customer site, we have a manager from the company that is also assigned to the site, however, he works day shift only)
    -All company activities are only planned around day shift workers, if you work 2nd or 3rd shift, you are pretty much excluded (i.e. company picnic, holiday parties, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to get all 3 shifts involved in company outings, and maybe somehow figure out how to avail management to all 3 shifts.
