    I worked at SAIC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company does try to boost morale and take care of its employees. The leadership would often buy food to bring in to their employees. There were company get-togethers and happy hours to allow employees spread across many offices to meet and mingle with their co-workers. The compensation package was fair and they really tried to work with employees when they needed extra time off, or had a family emergency.

    Cons

    After completing the hiring process my recruiter asked me for a good start date. I asked for two weeks as I needed to put my notice in at my previous employer. She said that would be perfect. Unfortunately, after my two weeks were up the company still did not have a start date for me. Six weeks after I left my previous employer I went to a job fair and spoke to a hiring manager regarding the fact that if I didn't get a start date soon I would have to find other employment. He didn't seem to even know my name, despite being the hiring manager for my position and the point of contact that the recruiter had given me. It took another four weeks before I finally started. I had expected delays, but there was little communication to let me know what was going on. I would like to believe that this was a fluke, but I have spoken to others who had the same problem.
