Casual work environment. Good place for younger employee's just starting out.
Technical Trainer / Systems Administrator (Former Employee), Fort Campbell, KYFebruary 10, 2015
Pros: causal, relaxed work atmospshere
Cons: management are typically entry-level
I was with SAIC for just a year as a contractor. I thought the place would be a good place to start for young college grads looking to get their start but I'm in mid-career so I did not see much future there. I will admit tough, that they are a good spring board into any level you are in your career but I had heard several times that salaries are low as compared to industry standards.

This organization has a broad scope of influence in the region, but seemed stove-piped internally and lacked a sense of team building or concern about employees.

Enjoyed working for SAIC
IT Consultant - Pfizer Pharmaceuticals (Former Employee), San Diego, CAFebruary 6, 2015
Overall I enjoyed my time at SAIC, they were very flexible in allowing me the option of remote work, at a time when that was just beginning to be an acceptable practice in the workplace.

You success there is driven by the projects you are placed on, and you need to network to ensure that you remain employed.

Senior Engineering Technician (Project Lead) (Former Employee), Bloomfield,IndFebruary 3, 2015
Pros: to be able to work with this company was a blessing.
Cons: not being able to do more.
There are not any typical days with SAIC which for me made them the best company to work for.We built prototype equipment for all branches of the military.I was able to travel worldwide and work with fantastic people.My co workers were some of the most dedicated people i have ever had the opportunity to work with,which was an easy task since all of our work was dedicated to the war fighters in all the world.The hardest part of my job was being limited to what i could accomplish due to truly not enough hours in a day.The most enjoyable part of my job was the knowledge that the equipment we were sending out would save someones life or multiple lives.

Editing Specialist IV (Former Employee), Falls Church, VA and Alexandria, VAJanuary 30, 2015
Management at both SAIC and LEIDOS have been very accommodating in allowing employees to work a schedule which does not interfere with family. As a parent of a special needs child, this was an area of great concern when I accepted my position with SAIC and subsequently LEIDOS. Telework and flex-time work hours allowed my to maintain my career and also be available to attend school meetings and medical appointment when necessary.

IT Server development and Infrastructure support for Software Developers
full time employee (Current Employee), Vienna, VirginiaJanuary 23, 2015
Pros: technical expertise
Cons: poor management.
I build and maintain Linux servers, storage arrays and firewalls. Currently over 40 servers to
include Oracle Database servers with attached iSCSI storage arrays, and several VPNs and firewalls.

I've also build an enterprise level licensed VMWARE infrastructure
now running over 60 virtual machines.

We have an excellent good group of developers and analysts
within this section of the company. But, through funding cuts the whole project, software we've developed and server infrastructure will most likely get scrapped.
This lost of expertise is the direct result of poor management from the mid level to the top of the organization.
