Has sold out its employees
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Beavercreek, OH – November 28, 2012
SAIC used to be a pretty nice place to work. But after going public in 2006, the company has steadily slid into a terrible work environment. Pretty much all decisions are now based on what it will do for stock price and quarterly earnings reports. Benefits have been cut every year--including doing away with Employee Stock Program to cutting medical.
And, jobs are dropping like flies. Anything that is not direct work is being dropped and replaced by generic centrally located "service desks" First it was HR, and then IT, and then Security.
And, if you're a technical person, look out! Hardware is impossible to get and all computers are locked down by IT.
competitive salary, relaxed work schedules
terrible "service desks" for hr, it, etc; upper management that only cares about stock price; no job security beyond current project
