I have been working at SAIC full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

If you want to work with really intelligent and passionate people, SAIC is a good option, especially if you have an energy, environment, government, military, or IT background.

Cons

The tone and feel of the company (at least my little corner of it) has gone drastically downhill in the past few years...basically since it became a publicly traded company. It's less supportive of individuals, and more focused on metrics and numbers now.

    The work is interesting, but the distinctiveness is gone.

    Pros

    Nice selection of direct projects.

    Cons

    In recent years, focus has been to make this company like any other. Distinctiveness has been rooted out and removed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is now just like any other defense company. Select new top management who will stay for more than a couple years and can think longer term. The stock price will follow.

    I worked at SAIC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great project management and technical depth

    Cons

    3 CEO's in 4 years, company split resulting in lack of management focus, disconnected systems and lack of process discipline. Not sure there's a plan.
