I have been working at SAIC as a contractor for more than 5 yearsPros
Under SAIC I worked for the DCMA. The work was exciting and always challenging. working at the customer site in GA, provided a wonderful opportunity to increase my skill sets and knowledge base. The office environment was full of characters which there was never a dull moment both good or bad. There was plenty of room for professional growth.Cons
Working at the customer site was not under the best conditions. From stuck elevators, broken security access policies to broken air conditioners/heating, there was always something wrong.
The customer was never satisfied and was always finding away to impose new requirements almost monthly if not weekly in some cases. The Customer would talk bad about employees, and make fun of some of the employees. The customer in many cases caused failures, violated their own policies and would turn around and say that they are paying us to fix it.
The workload was also not equally compensated. A team of 22 individuals was handling a customer requirement which a team of 50 was needed. This caused many people to work overtime, on their days off, and many times simply because the customer demanded itAdvice to ManagementAdvice
SAIC Management should keep a close eye on scope creep, they should also remind the customer that some of the services they were demanding were not in the contract.
The onsite PM should hold more employees accountable for their action or in many case lack their of.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
