High integrity organization
Network Engineer (Former Employee), Washington, DCNovember 3, 2014
SAIC is another government contractor that is well respected but has often been subjected to government investigations. The compensation is not the greatest but it's above average. The company prides itself over it's reputation and heritage (scientific), and majority of the staff are well educated and professional with the level of service they provide.

Excellent team environment
Software Application Engineer/Project Manager (Current Employee), Lexington Park, MDNovember 2, 2014
A very strong emphasis on team work and collaboration among teams. They have a very strong emphasis on supporting the customer.

The biggest challenge was responding to rapidly changing requirements and tasking from the customer. In every instance the team was able to respond.

The best part of the work was the challenge of adapting to a changing environment.

Great colleagues, too much CEO turnover
HR (Former Employee), McLean, VAOctober 28, 2014
Pros: telework arrangements, depending on manager, very flexible
Cons: horrible medical/prescription plans, lacking stability, limited upward mobility due to dramatic cuts in personnel
While this is by far the best group of employees I've ever worked with, the executive leadership is very flavor-of-the-day. We've had excessive CEO turnover and have really underperformed.

Great place to work until the budget axe dropped
COMSEC Specialist/Info Security Analyst (Former Employee), Kennedy Space Center, FLOctober 27, 2014
Pros: flexible working hours
Cons: they didn't keep their promise, when the courted me for the job saying it was a 10 year contract, and i was axed due to budgets, in a little over two years, i wished i would have stayed in my old job!
One of the best jobs I ever had. I just wished I knew the job would end because of budget cuts. I could have stayed in my old job and been just fine. Now....10 months of being unemployed is...well...you know, tough to say the least.

Interesting place to work and get knowledge of weapons parts and assembly
Small Arms Repairer (Current Employee), Crane, INOctober 26, 2014
Pros: fun work enviroment
Cons: no room for advancement or raises, no job security
Receive weapons for particular job, we serialize them and check them in and make sure weapon count sheet is correct and then we begin the process of breaking down the gun and checking the parts and making sure parts that are still good can be reused. Then we begin the de-burring and cleaning and recoating the parts and getting them ready to reassemble – more... the guns, after they are reassembled we begin the pre fire testing to check the functionality of the weapons is correct and good. Then we will test fire all the weapons to complete the process and we will then clean the weapons and continue the process to check them in to supply and have the weapons shipped back out to the customer. – less

SCCM Administrator (Former Employee), Battle Creek, MIOctober 4, 2014
I would recommend working for SAIC to anyone that asks. The only downside it that SAIC is so big that it sometimes fails in Job placement and advancement within.

Lack of support by management
Environmental Scientist, Leidos (Former Employee), Bothell, WASeptember 27, 2014
Pros: decent benefits
Cons: not a long term job when starting in lower positions. not good for long term career.
There is a lack of support by management and the only way to get a significant raise is to be part of corporate management or to find a job elsewhere.
