    Software Developer in SAIC, Bangalore

    Software Developer (Current Employee) Bangalore

    ProsSAIC 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.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementDo some more offshoring, get us more clients.

    Good place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bangalore

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

    ConsI feel like I am a hard worker and I never got promoted or offered another job and feel like if they let me I could do better.

    A great company if you understand the business model - consultants have to be under contract at all times.

    Senior Engineer (Former Employee) Idaho Falls, ID (US)

    ProsGood pay and benefits. The quality of work depended mainly on the individual contract, but that is true of all consulting work. I enjoyed my co-workers. Good opportunities to transfer to other locations.

    ConsTo many re-organizations and management changes. The company was not as good after going public. Some of the problems can be attributed to the changes in government contracting methods and philosophies that made it more difficult to operate this type of business.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
