    Software Developer in SAIC, Bangalore

    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.

    I have been working at SAIC

    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.

    Great if you can make a large company "small"

    I worked at SAIC full-time

    Pros

    Large corporations depend on small office to get work done. The right manager can make the large company feel smaller and more personable. A division with strong, healthy leadership and growth is a joy to work for.

    Cons

    If you are in a division or office lacking strong leadership, you can become just a number in the corporate system. Lacking business development can mean you are only viable as long as the current contract exists.

    I have been working at SAIC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible with time-off and work schedules as long as you get the required time in per week and are following policy. They also support education, training, and certification. There is compensation for certifications as long as they are pre-approved.

    Cons

    Not the best benefits package. Premiums are at an all time high. Also, teams are now broken out into different service lines. And I've only talked to my task manager via email as they sit in a different location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communications from service lines down to the lowest level.

    Pros

    It was a good mix, got to do some state side traveling and they took care of you when you travel! Lots of hours
