Designer/CAD Operator I (Current Employee) – Bedford, IN – June 21, 2016
Co-workers are very knowledgeable and willing to help when it's needed. The things that I have learned here in only a year are unbelievable, like the many different projects that I have been able to work on and all of the new people that I have been able to meet.

I know it's hard to claim, but there are few places that truly have that organic relationship between management and workers. SAIC happens to be one such place. At no time do the workers feel under appreciated. That being stated it should be pointed out that SAIC is in the same work category as Booze Allen, Harris, Lockheed Martin and other DOD contract companies. So if you don't care for uncertain futures or periodically searching for another place of employment, seems to happen every bid cycle. Avoid. However if none of that bothers you and you love the excitement of it all, SAIC is the place for you.
One of the best Health Savings Accounts out there.
politics over rules. Constant bickering among management. Getting the job done and better relationships with senior client management is not important. There are no on-boarding protocols. No one wants to answer questions regarding interface methodologies and status. Atmosphere is totally dysfunctional.
Pay to start with modest raises
Incompetent senior managers . Revolving door specialist that come and go monthly.
N/A (Former Employee) – Springfield, VA – May 26, 2016
Shady management and shady business practices that place sub-contractors in a position were their hands are tied. One employee was let go of his position; promised it back ( with a pay cut) once he reapplied. Not only did he not get the position but he also was told he was over qualified for his own position. They decided to go with the bosses best friend son.
I was let go with three days left in my two week notice and I was a Sub-Contractor.
I will say at the time I needed a job but it served it purpose but if you get hired be careful and use it as a launching pad to find another.
This was a contract position with the US Air Force as a sensor technician. The position was very rewarding. Unfortunately, the contract came to a close. The team was very integrated and had a pretty good time together. I really enjoyed this position.
Storefront Supervisor (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – May 23, 2016
Had a much smaller staff at the Pentagon, there were only 5 of us total. We learned the inner workings of the Federal Facilities Division. We responsible for the inventorying and cataloging of the entire government owned stock and merchandise. The commute from Woodbridge to the Pentagon was the probably the hardest part of the job on any given day. The teamwork that we employed to get the job done was enjoyable.
Remedy/ Specialist/Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) – Charleston, SC – May 16, 2016
Integrate MRAP vehicle Comm system and learning Remedy system . Management sucks! Great co-workers. Nothing was hard about the job. Learning new things all the time. Today you might have a job and the next day jobless. I got paid very well. Contract work.... NO GOOD!
Pay very well and learn new things. Never a dull job.
Work today and jobless the next day/ contract work.
Engineering Technician III (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – May 14, 2016
One phase was the integrating part of NIE, where we would install the systems into the military vehicles that were under test. The next phase was to test and validate these systems as well as educate the soldiers on this. Phase 3 is where we would conduct our field tests with the soldiers in complete control of the equipment but we were there for support when needed. The final phase was removing the installed equipment and get ready for the next install. I liked my position at SAIC because every few months there was a change of pace and shifted gears, keeping work interesting. There was always something to learn. Co- workers were easy to get along with. Management was caring, educated, and informative. I learned the contracting life, the systems introduced to the Army as well as the process that goes into NIE.
Many - (Former Employee) – St Louis, MO; Warrenville, IL; and at home. – May 2, 2016
Typical workday? - no such thing, which is one of the reasons I enjoyed working for SAIC. My tenure at SAIC also involved me in a myriad of different tasks and subject areas - always challenging and educational. Enjoyed working with co-workers, many much younger than myself and open to and willing to be subject to my mentoring. I cannot state that any part of the jobs held were "hard" - challenging yes; requiring self education yes; requiring long hours sometimes.
CHCS Software Specialist (Former Employee) – Fairfield, CA – April 30, 2016
When I worked for SAIC they paid well. Stock options earned me quite a bit of money. Great benefits. This was back in early 2000s. My site wasn't run well. Sometimes ridiculous management, some lazy co-workers.
Prestigious job, great pay.
Management unwilling to handle complaints-things never changed.
Technical Team Lead/Senior Oracle DBA (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – April 20, 2016
