    Dead end job, poor non-responsive management that only cares about numbers, not people.

    I have been working at SAIC as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are great and try to do a good job and work together.

    Cons

    Management training for this department seems to be avoiding or upsetting clients and watching the movie Office Space for inspiration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire that one manager that mismanages so badly that employees never get their daily breaks, are constantly asked to cut their lunches short to help out and who yells at employees for when they do take bathroom breaks because calls are missed due to understaffing.

    Former Employee - Engineer in Tulsa, OK (US)

    I worked at SAIC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The SEE&I division has a variety of architecture and engineering projects. They work with on federal (DoD & GSA) projects, state government projects, and private sector projects. The projects are commercial, industrial, institutional and multi-unit residential buildings, civil works, and DoD specific projects.

    Cons

    The quality of a project is not a top concern. Management would rather blame all of the design professionals on a given project for an error rather than address the source of the error. Project managers are more converned about the ease of reporduction rather than following the engineering licensure laws and regulations of the various states. They are seen as "helpful suggestions" which can be ignored when inconvient. Management is unwilling to adress personnel who do not meet the standard of care for their profession and constantly produce documents which have errors and/or are unbildable. Management does not communicate with the professionals producing the designs until there are cost overruns or design errors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take resposibility for your design contracts. Do nit just keep incompetnet people because you need a warm body to produce work. Value the professionals who do a good job instead of treating them like a inconivent number.
