    I worked at SAIC full-time (more than a 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.

    Pros

    Good benefits, people and work environment, and training opportunities are plentiful.

    Cons

    Too much focus on shareholders. High stock price should not be the only ultimate goal of a company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to basics. Recognize what really makes a company great (hint: employees).
