    Software Developer in SAIC, Bangalore

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Software Developer in Bangalore
    Current Employee - Software Developer in Bangalore

    I have been working at SAIC

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    > Can't expect high-end technicalities
    > No exposure to Engineering project
    > No vision from higher management resulting in loosing good contracts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Former Employee - Project Support
    Former Employee - Project Support

    I worked at SAIC (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    SAIC has strong ties to the Government Sector. Great networking and opportunity for long term employment. Benefits are somewhat competitive.

    Cons

    SAIC is highly nepotistic, especially in the state of Indiana. If you aren't part of the right tribe, it is challenging to grow your career. SAIC recently changed over to a Matrix Management style company and the employees are experiencing difficulty adjusting.
    Regional Management is standoffish and does little to make themselves available to all staff. Middle Management often lacks expertise in the area they are managing or lack certain skills that would enable them to be more effective leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Hire qualified Management that understands civilian and military leadership styles.
    2. Familiarize yourself with the day to day operations and tasking of those you are assigned to lead so that you can more effective communicate business needs to both - upper management and other departments/divisions.
    3. Be a leader - remove yourself from petty office politics.
    4. Make decisions that will help your employees and company grow.
    5. Offer a career path, not just an annual increase or bonus.
    6. Operate the business with integrity.
    7. Expand the market.
