Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Oak Ridge, TN – January 18, 2017
It's an easy job but be prepared for boredom. You will spend alot of your day reading a book or whatnot which gets old fast. if you want a mindless job its great but if you need to feel like you work for your paycheck then this is not the job for you.
Research Chemist / Research Scientist (Current Employee) – Crane, IN – January 16, 2017
Line leads (your boss) come and go due to getting government jobs or having jobs on base of their own. Each building on base treats contract employees differently. Contractors will always be treated like second class citizens on base. Some buildings treat them better than most. There are several buildings on base where contractors are treated like peasants.
FSR in Alaska (Former Employee) – Alaska – January 13, 2017
Was an FSR for SAIC working on CT-80's. Also maintained Radiation Portal Monitors for border control checkpoints. Oncall 24/7 and was expected to react to any emergency on my own and be available and prepared.
Instructor/Writer (Current Employee) – Fort Gordon, GA – January 11, 2017
Keep in mind, I have not been working here for very long yet. They give you the freedom to improvise adapt and overcome challenges without micromanaging you and stifling your creativity. They encourage open minded free thinking employees to develop their ideas and see them implemented. Co-workers are all great. The Hardest part of the job is security. It is a contract, so it should be good for atleast 5 years. The most enjoyable part is doing what I love, teaching electronic warfare to the future Cyber Warriors.
Senior Multimedia Design Analyst (Concept Artist) (Former Employee) – McLean, VA (worked from home) – January 7, 2017
I fell into a full-time position with SAIC, one of the nation's foremost government contractors, through my illustration skills. I was able to work from home, had excellent bosses, and would have loved to have stayed on staff until I retired. Unfortunately, government contracts being finite things, my position was eliminated when the work ended, and no forthcoming similar work appeared. I still maintain a vestigial association with SAIC, and if freelance work becomes available, I could be called to action on a part-time basis.
Healthcare, great compensation, wonderful bosses, ethical company
Tech Ii (Former Employee) – Bedford, IN – January 2, 2017
Working at SAIC was a very rewarding. A typical day was very busy working in inventory and out on the floor. My co-workers were the best and the management was always there if you had any issues. It was more a family to me. I learned all about hardware and all products involved with the cable process. The hardest part of the job was actually nothing. There was some stress with getting the kits out with the right part numbers as fast as possible for fellow co-workers. The most enjoyable was the people I worked if. I retired and that's what I miss the most. And the extra money.
Good people who care about their employees at the local level. Not so much at the corporate level. Very little job security. The company training is extensive as far as annual security training, ethics training, Information Assurance training, etc.
Senior Cyber Operational Planner (Current Employee) – Fort Belvoir, VA – December 19, 2016
A typical day would consist of checking for coordination emails, that set up meetings with cyber training range stake holders. I learned a new aspect of cyber, from the infrastructure ide where it is built versus conducting intelligence analysis on people using it. Co-workers were helpful if I asked, poor communication, original team kept to themselves. Mission continues to be executed. Hardest part was communicating with other contractors on the team. Most enjoyable part of the day and when I make progress on a task that has taken a long time to complete.
Technical Documentation Specialist (Former Employee) – North Charleston, SC – December 13, 2016
Good place to work but contract work only. The return feedback for your work is rewarding from the clients. Each individual plays a role in a much bigger picture than they realize when lives are saved.
Individual pay increase based on your own meritis.
Associate (Former Employee) – Frederick, MD – December 13, 2016
Hated it here and would not recommend. The atmosphere is too laid back and only a handful of people actually work. The managers do not know how to lead people and have only made it to lead positions because they have been there forever. A very clique - like environment and if you are not kissing your manager's butt, you won't get any recognition if all you do is work hard and with quality. The job is simple but after working there you will feel as though you're an idiot. Mind-numbing work. Good place to go if you're right out of school and you're lazy. You will fit in perfectly.
A handful of decent coworkers.
Poor management, poor culture, poor work ethic, low morale...just horrible.
