Technical Lead, RCAS Safety Team (Current Employee), Falls Church, VA – May 14, 2013
This was my second time working for SAIC on the RCAS Contract. Worked very hard, but had a good time doing it. Managers did the best they could to manage a difficult customer, who unfortunately were not the end users. Our end users loved us, but our government managers were not always as logical as we would have liked.

The workload is consistent and diverse. There is most likely at least one team if not a number of teams that any given person can comfortabley adapt to. Team members are friendly, helpful, and supportive. Local management is fair, helpful and resourceful.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Stennis Space Center, MS – May 3, 2013
A typical day at work is reflected on my resume. The duties are varied. You must be able to interact with many different personalities. Management is very flexible with their employees. The co-workers are excellent. The hardest part of the job is the constant changes with travel. The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction with co-workers – more... and government employees which is required for all aspects of the job. – less
Cons: bad software management, bad culture, bad contract from the gov, bad pressure, young inexperienced managers, hires only people they can manipulate
If your are serious about employment don't go to SAIC. I know this company well. They are all smoke and mirrors. They want you to think they are the best but after splitting this company is not employee friendly. Read about the New York scandal. There software processes and culture is unreasonable and the managers are not experienced and make poor decisions – more... based on friendships and who likes you. Don't go there. The market is getting strong don't get stuck working for this company. They are not the preferred vendor for government contracts and will loss future contracts. Try BAE Systems or Northrop L3, or others which are way better. DONT be FOOLED, I am telling the truth, There might be pockets of good but Orlando is NOT ONE OF THEM. – less
A typical work day was boring with hardly any tasking. I did learn contracting and financial skills while working for SAIC. Management seemed not interested in my tasking or what my skills were. My co-workers were somewhat friendly. The hardest part of the job was going to work knowing my skills were not going to be used and knowing I would not have – more... anything to do. There were not any enjoyable parts of my job. – less
