Logistics/Material Handler (Former Employee), PAR – February 19, 2014
Pros: very good compensation
Cons: no days off
We worked 7 days a week 12 hours a day. I learned how to operate all forklifts and driving a 18 wheeler. Management was very easy going and stayed on top of us. I worked with 4 other employees. Best part of the day was when it was time to get off.

Management Analyst (Current Employee), Lexington Park, MD – February 19, 2014
A typical day at work for me is arriving to multiple emails with tasks to assist upper management as well as employees on my team.

We would use the Scrum and the software life cycle to manage the priorities of software development.

I learned how to perform client/server communication using SSL sockets, program in multiple languages including C#, Java, – more... and bash shell script, worked with windows, worked with linux, and develop my object-oriented skills and design patterns. The most enjoyable part was working with my co-workers and always being able to learn something new.

Great company to work for initially but some real ethics issues led to serious downfall resulting in CEO retiring and upper management resignations.
Operations /Service Desk Site Manager (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – February 12, 2014
This was a great company when it was totally employee owned. Great bonuses and raises consistent with being compensated for doing outstanding work. Then it went public and got bogged down in red tape. A lawsuit over an ethical issue cost them half a billion dollars and resulted in the loss of what once was an excellent reputation. I don't believe it – more... will ever recover. – less
Signals Anlyst (Current Employee), San Antonio, TX – February 8, 2014
I enjoy my job, but sometimes management can be irrational and erratic. But the job itself is rewarding and I've been able to travel to places I would not normally have gone.
Also SAIC is an extremely organized company. You can tell they've been in the business for a long time, so administrative functions are extremely user friendly and self explanatory. – more... I would love to work for this company in more of a corporate setting than on a contract. – less
I rate it one of the top places to work in America!
Assistant Office Mgr; Contractor at OSD/Pentagon (Current Employee), Washington, DC – February 7, 2014
Pros: the database software available to everyone called issaic.
Cons: the cafeteria could be improved.
During my time at SAIC I met some wonderful people in the company. In my particular office there were mainly young inexperienced college grads and me, a 22 yr veteran. We all got along well and learned from each other. The benefits were numerous and improved our quality of life. Their database is very informative and contains everything there is to – more... know about SAIC. The job search portal is also very helpful. Management is friendly and willing to take the time for "offsites" and office "Get togethers" periodically. – less
CHCS/AHLTA System Administrator (Former Employee), Cannon AFB, NM – February 7, 2014
Single man site, was able to work the schedule that fit best with my family life. Learned a lot about EHR databases. Management was easy to work for and understanding even when called at midnight because of problems. Hardest part was being the only one doing the job. Sometimes it would have been nice to have someone to help out.
