    I worked at SAIC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A big company, does lots of design and contracts for governments and industries. You get many different chances. It usually have a good balance between work and life.

    Cons

    Each division is different. The environment and culture are specific to each division. Lots of time, employees didn't have a big picture of whole company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It could have been changed since I left it several years ago. But I hope the management can be more transparent on things going on.

    I have been working at SAIC full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Been an employee for over 10 years, and the new SAIC has a better focus and handle on the strategy for the marketplace. The management team in place today listens and is responsive, but thin in numbers. Good opportunities for technical folks.

    Cons

    Communications with the staff is sporadic, with some programs doing well, and others leaving a void of information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share more info with the staff. This will assist in keeping and building trust and camaraderie.

    Pros

    Formerly an Employee-owned Company; founded by Dr Beyster; deep technical capabilities.

    Old SAIC abandoned the Employee-ownership model in an attempt to unlock value, in the process unbinding the employees and the special sauce from the company's bones.
