Government contractor in a down defense environment
Program Manager (Current Employee), Charleston, SCAugust 25, 2014
Overall a good place to work. The downturn in defense has effected the company as a whole. There is not a good tolerance for employees to be on overhead. A good contract with a year or more of time on it will keep you safe.

Fun While it Lasted
Expeditionary Lead SIGINT Analyst/Reporter (Former Employee), AfghanistanAugust 21, 2014
I worked on an incredible project with a great team while in Afghanistan. The pay was worth being there and the job was satisfying most of the time. I wish the company i.e. HR and outside project management, did more to retain the employees at the end of the contract I worked.

Upper Management above everyone
Analyst / Property Administrator (Former Employee), Redstone Arsenal, ALAugust 14, 2014
Cons: benefits, management, work environment
In the group I worked in at SAIC I found that upper and mid level management do not care for those who actually do the work. With bloated salaries they will not hesitate to fire someone just to get a bonus or keep one of their friends employed. It is highly political, mechanical and the worst work environment I've every been in.

Structure and organized
Contracts Representative (Former Employee), North Charleston, SCAugust 11, 2014
A typical day at work - busy with proposal and managing my proposals
What have I learned – procurement and time management
Management – Provides source of information and resources
Co-Workers – The support team worked together to support the Program Managers
The hardest part – Managing several proposals at one time with a short turn-around time
The – more... most enjoyable pat of the job - Completing all proposals on time – less
