Overall Reviews at SAIC
Performer | Denver, CO | Oct 8, 2019
Great company to work for!
I've really enjoyed working with SAIC. I used to work full time and now I am just part time, pulled on different contracts. The work is flexible. The company has a good reputation.

Not willing to direct the Customer towards set goals. Too worried about saving money at the cost of the Employees. All about appearance versus outcome.

Excellent Work Opportunities
I worked for SAIC for 21 years and worked remotely for 15 years on mostly military or government contracts. I was an instructional designer when hired and was given several opportunities to advance my knowledge and skill sets. Work was dependent on contracts obtained through the government.

Excellent people and a good working environment, with a hands-off aproach
I worked with great people who fostered a good environment, provided great feedback on my work, and let me know to start looking for a new job with ample notice. Not so good about finding people new work though... but my project, and team, were the tops.

Good company but the shareholders are the focus
Excellent company but once your salary gets too high either move on or watch your back. I along with 14 others were cut in a war zone due to cutbacks. All of surmised we were the most experienced but also the most expensive in terms of salary. Not good for the customer but excellent for the budget savings.
ProsExcellent training opportunities
ConsSalary reviews are super competitive

Very difficult to advance.
I normally work 9-10 hours a day. When overcome with too much work, I don’t get any help from leaders to find additional experienced help. No bonuses for extra efforts.
System Engineer | Maryland | Feb 2, 2020
The company provided me with the opportunity to pursue my managerial objectives and lead an engineering team. The pay and benefits were commensurate with the opportunity.

In defense, it’s difficult to convey a heart to employees with its size. Managers that care are really hit or miss. Hard not thinking their image of diversity and commitment to worthy causes does not necessarily apply internally. Managers need better training on caring.
ConsNeed heart and empathy towards employees and their personal problems.

Good people doing their best to help the DoD in whatever they need.
Good pay, decent benefits, good people. Lots of opportunities to try other fields if you want that. Very stable if you are corporate SAIC. I usually go the contractor route so less stable but better pay. In fact, the only reason I am on indeed is to find something permanent without the instability of contract work.

Good place to work
Great work/life balance; pay is very good; management structure is a little different than normal, but you get used to it. Client site positions are always a good thing!
