MRAP program
Leave of Absence (Former Employee), Camp Bastion, AfghanistanJuly 23, 2015
Pros: Never ending work
Cons: Rocket attacks
This was an interesting company to work for. Being the key Govt. contractor to issue MRAP's in Afghanistan was great. SAIC empowered it's workers to provide the most safe vehicles to all the War Fighters. Again, these are 12 hour, 7 days a week jobs. The hardest part was always logistics and parts. The greatest joy was issuing these trucks to War Fighter and seeing that these vehicles let them go home in one piece back to there families.

Material Planner/Logistics Specialist (Current Employee), Havelock, NCJuly 20, 2015
Pros: People
Cons: People
I generally open the office I arrive about 6:15 AM each morning and get the open order report ready for various co-workers, print out any orders that are coming from our activities storage facility. Complete intra-base transfers. Analyze stock hand, EDD of that stock, weather or not to do a "special" buy in order to maintain production levels before DLA gets well. Check in all special purchase to verify that certifications of material is in order. Maintain discrepancy records. ect.. The most enjoyable thing about my job is knowing that my job matters. I know when I inspect material that the material is good and true and won't be placed on any aircraft unless it is 100% certified to be of good quality.

Productive workplace something new everyday!!
Information System Security Manager (Current Employee), North Charleston, SCJuly 17, 2015
Pros: Flexibility of the schedule
Cons: Upper Management
A typical day for a security specialist starts out with a line of employees needing employee badges for various reasons. Once badges are ordered, computer audits take place and documented. After all systems have been audited, we handle any employee adverse reports. After lunch, we go and check on the other facilities (2) and see if they have whatever they need and also ensuring that everyone is abiding by the rules. The hardest part of my job is the fact that it is something different everyday. The most enjoyable part of my day is knowing that you helped someone out today.IIIII

Great company to work for
Environmental Health and Safety Manager (Current Employee), Columbus/ Ft. Benning, GAJuly 14, 2015
Pros: Benefits
Cons: Budget cuts
SAIC's core values and ethics are very important. It is easy to move up in the company. During the contracting and bidding process, there is always the possibility of the company not being awarded the contract which could mean you will be out of a job.

Good place to work with advancement
Technical Editor (Former Employee), Shalimar, FLJune 22, 2015
Pros: Very good working conditions
Cons: Stressful
Job hours worked well with having a family because of the flexibility. I had standard M-F work hours, but had no problem taking time off as needed. Co-workers worked together as a team for the most part. The hardest part of the job was the volume of work, which could make it very stressful at times. I learned a lot about how to better manage my time. Working conditions were very good and the office was a pleasant place to be.

Pros: Large company with multiple locations for employment.
Cons: Speed of communication is sometimes slow.
Work is continually evolving so there is no time to get complacent.

Always be flexible and willing to venture into new positions or areas of responsibility.

Management allows you to make decisions and recommend ways to better the program and the processes involved with the work.

If you are a remote employee, you are in trouble.
Principal Systems Administrator (Former Employee), Cambridge, MAJune 16, 2015
Pros: Stable job
Cons: Little opportunity for advancement, long hours
There is little interaction with your direct manager if you are on site in a customer facility. In a sense you become invisible. You are there generate income for the company and nothing more. I am writing this review prior to SAIC's split into Leidos and SAIC. Had I stayed, I would have been a part of Leidos.

My direct manager recognized my contributions to the program as best he could. His hands were tied during review time by the program manager. There is little room for advancement.
