Interesting work, great co-workers. terrible senior managers and ineffective leaders
Office Manager/Program Manager (Former Employee) – Layton, UT – November 5, 2018
I guided a staff of 40 people in supporting government contracts at Hill AFB. Much of my time was used in writing proposals for additional contracts and recompeting contracts for which we were the incumbent. The co-workers were professional, educated and dedicated.
When SAIC split into two companies, they eliminated thousands of positions in a money saving effort. Since I had only been with the company a few years, my position was eliminated. The senior management was not effective. They continued to hire, then fire in rapid sequence several Business Development personnel. The position of Office Chief was also filled and vacated rapidly. This led to fear among employees that all that senior management cared about was their own best interests. Many of the employees that worked for me migrated into government or other contract positions to avoid being dumped by SAIC or Leidos.
Interesting and important projects; great working level co-workers
Totally self interested senior leaders, bad management, no sense of top-down loyalty
