I'm fresh out of the military - was a linguist
I've been offered a job at SAIC in Bethesda MD for a position as a Geospatial Analyst. The salary is in the high 70s.
I've also been offered a job with another large consulting firm - Booz Allen Hamilton. This job is in Mississippi and involves curriculum preparation for new troops flying on a new platform. The salary is in the high 60s.
I'm really torn. Just from the interview process, BAH seems like a much better company. I interviewed with 5 different people who told me all about different aspects of the company and what my role would be, etc. etc. With SAIC, I interviewed over the phone with one person and was offered the job the next day. That makes me think it may just be a throw away job that they need to fill a position to get $$ from the government. Pay is less with BAH, but then the area is astronomically less expensive...but then it's also a Mississippi vs DC.
I was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts or any what-you-would-do-in-my positions - maybe other factors I might not be seeing. Thanks!
