Systems Integration Analyst, Level II (Former Employee) – O'Fallon, IL – September 30, 2015
This was my first job experience since retiring from the Air Force. Contract IT can be a vicious experience (if your not careful), but SAIC made it very rewarding. The company itself is a very professional company that REALLY takes care of its employees. I was able to travel during this position and got to go to several places (Ft Worth, TX., Philadelphia, PA., Springfield and Peoria, IL. and Klamath Falls, OR.) within this short one year that I have been with them. I was able to meet lots of people within my line of duty and got to collaborate on a project with great impact on the security of our nation. The people I worked for are the most caring and take care of their employees. I loved every minute of it.
The reason I said vicious before is because contracts come and go quickly. Within Contract IT, if you are not careful, one day you are employed and the next you're unemployed. In this case it was not the fault of SAIC, but of a rival company undercutting our contract during renewal.
