Pros: good people to work for
SAIC supports individuals to be all they can be by getting good work experience. They gave me a chance when others would not to work in the professional world. A typical day was adding on to what we had worked on the day before. The hardest part was the never ending challenges that people asked us to modify webparts as well as their websites.

Master Training Specialist (Former Employee), Alexandria Egypt – September 25, 2013
Great experience. I was with Booz Allen Hamilton for 7 years in the same position prior to SAIC taking over the contract. I moved into management and was the Facilities Maintenance manager with a crew of 10 local Egyptians. I speak Arabic and was able to manage this team leading with American technology and knowhow, but translate into Arabic format – more... so the team was constantly growing and learning. I learned to communicate in their language on a higher level from them, and they learned to perform on a higher level and maintain the highest standard of operation and maintenance from me. Very challenging and rewarding. We became a family. I was forced to leave due to civil unrest in the country. Needless to say, I was heart broken. – less
Engineer Technician I (Current Employee), Charleston, SC – September 22, 2013
A typical day at work is just that come in get what you need and get to work and go home. Learned different ways to achieve my goals for the day or week either on time or ahead of time. There are really good people to work for as far as management and co-workers. Hardest part of the job is trying to keep it being a government contract you never know – more... when you'll be done. Its an easy place to work no really getting on you about how fast or slow your going pretty laid back and easy going. – less
Contracts Assistant (Current Employee), McLean, VA – September 19, 2013
Pros: working with a great group of people and being part of an exceptional team
Cons: being laidoff due to organizational restructuring
Over the past 14 years I have gained knowledge on Government and Commercial contracts from award through closeout. I was able to become familiar with FAR/DFAR Clauses, and submitted DD250's, Patent Reports, confirmed Property and Security were closed out. Therefore I had the opportunity to interact with various levels of Government personal and interally. – more... Management has been wonderful and was able to balanace work and life for me by allowing me to cut my 2+ hour per day commute to allow me to telework for the past 5 years. I have enjoyed working for SAIC and will greatly miss being a part of the team. Due to organizational restructuring, I received a layoff notification that is effective on 4 October. – less
