Top-heavy management structure
Systems Engineer (Current Employee), Charleston, SCJune 8, 2015
Re-alignment of the company makes it difficult to manage people and projects. Top-heavy management eroding away employee pay and benefits. It is not the same company as designed by its founder. typical public-traded company held hostage by shareholder expectations of high returns.

Program Assistant (Former Employee), Washington, DC, San Diego, CaJune 5, 2015
Pros: Nice employees
Cons: the company has had a transition
As with most companies you must pursue your career objectives and work with leads and managers to reach your goals.

Not my intended employer
Systems Integration Analyst IV (Current Employee), Stafford, VAJune 2, 2015
When I initially transitioned from the Marine Corps, I was hired by a great company called Eagan, McAllister Associates, Inc. (EMA), which was later acquired by SAIC. The acquisition had its fits and starts, but most of the EMA employees also transitoned to SAIC. It became apparent, though, that SAIC corporate was more interested in the "bottom line" and not necessarily in maintaining/building an in-house resource of skilled, professional employees. While the benefits and work/life balance are good, job security is practically nonexistence - if your contract is coming to an end, you get a 30-day notice and little assistance with finding other internal job opportunities.

Teamwork
Desktop Support Technician III (Former Employee), Guantanamo bay, CubaJune 1, 2015
Pros: Teamwork, friendship, company support
Cons: Had to relocate
In all my years working in the private and public sector I have never worked for an company like SAIC. The time I spent working for SAIC was by far the best experience I've ever had. Our department worked as a team and we did everything to make sure that our customer received the best care possible. I never felt I was going to work, and I believe that was a good thing. Management was a key factor in the atmosphere and the culture.

Unstable as this is a government contractor
Systems Operations and Data Analyst (Former Employee), Seattle WAMay 27, 2015
Pros: good while you are working
Cons: Constantly has to rebid for same jobs
SAIC continually bids for short to medium term contracts tied to the government, or private sector companies that carry government contracts. The jobs differ greatly, and like any contract job is innately unstable.
