    I have been working at SAIC full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I get a paycheck. That is the only Pro.

    Cons

    Some on the contract sit and talk all day, while I the hard worker do the work of three employees, while the other two do not work. These none workers have been getting paid for the past seven weeks for none working, while I do all the work. How do they get away with this? Been harassed and bullied by one particular employee and it has been going on for over ten months. When will that stop?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solve bullying and harassment issues. Get rid of the bumps on a log. It is bad enough the military budget is going down the toilet, you add to it by employing individuals who sit around and do not work, but you still issue a paycheck and charge the customer, the US military. Overall low morale in the work place, can use restructuring.

    I worked at SAIC

    Pros

    Great networking abilities, ability to work all over the world with diverse cultures and get access to interesting projects with large clients.

    Cons

    Sometimes left out on your own in certain countries, as the US was always the main focus and where the power lay, and international business didn't seem as important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about getting feedback from management from all over the globe on strategies, priorities and especially how we work with clients so not to promise things which cannot be delivered in the future.
