The place is great to work for. However for me I was temp for several months with multiple promises of being made perm in the next month. This continues and the pay was mediocre compared to my previous office work. I hear that permanent pay is not much better with most starting in the high 30k category after a somewhat mandatory 6 month temp.
good community, flexible hours
management was misleading, management also was not commanding and often failed to assist
The work SAIC has is excellent. However, the corporate culture is killing the doers in the company. They have lost the focus on the employees who provide the excellent products. SAIC can be summed up by: Great work with no reward.
Material Expeditor/Secretary (Current Employee) – Hanahan, SC – February 8, 2017
Management is not ideal in the Charleston area, but my understanding is it is much better in the corporate office of McLean, Virginia. However, they do have a flexible schedule. Benefits are lacking in some areas, such as insurance and sick days, but they do have a lot of vacation days.

Co-workers are helpful and professional
Always walking a tightrope working from contract to contract.

The company offers many challenges and opportunities. You get to work with specialists and engineers in high tech fields. There is potential travel opportunities with some jobs, which may take you to places you may have only dreamed of. Everyday you will learn something new about your job and/or the company. Everyone that I have worked with has made my experiences very enjoyable.
Most times, you will have a flexible work schedule.

Billing department was a fast paced environment with quite a bit of overtime. I learned to multitask and prioritize based on deadlines and invoice income. I enjoyed the team environment and the managers feedback when requested.

Logistics Analyst I (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 29, 2017
For me SAIC was always an enjoyable place to work. The employees were skilled, professional, loyal and helpful. I gained much knowledge in my years there. The company was always prompt to process travel claims and paid very well depending on your abilities. I liked the range of employee experience, junior partners eager to learn and experienced employees willing to tutor the junior ones.
Thoroughly enjoyed my time with SAIC. Very professional environment, competitive salaries and benefits. Always received support from superiors and support staff to effectively execute contract assigned.
Sr. Program Management Analyst/Project Control (Current Employee) – Washington City, DC – January 25, 2017
A lot has changed, but it is getting better after split. Quality of job really depends where you are in the company. Last position I had some great managers. I've worked in other locations where management was horrible.
