    Software Developer in SAIC, 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

    > 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.

    Pros

    Awesome contract and DoS great customers for the most part! Plenty of online training opportunity

    Cons

    Management pass the buck on dealing with difficult customers and tend to appoint inexperienced employees in management roles. Also, improve the Health Benefits, the employee absorb too much of the cost and kick up the tuition reimbursement and bring it back to 5K and above per year, as most of the staff could use the money to at a least motivate them to acquire a post high school education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within, do not grab someone from the opposing engineer team that made life miserable and make them a program manager....c'mon you can do better! (I hope!?!?)
