I just put my resume in for technical writer. Go to HR and tell them you sent me. I think there's a hiring bonus.

Cheers
Lucy

As a former SAIC employee I can tell you... well, I hate to bad mouth a company.

I work for SAIC at fort belvoir. Do you mean the office that is the same exit for Montclaire? They do work for Quantico. If so, they are the same Business Unit as mine. I met some of those folks. Definately nice..

As apposed to Matt, I like working for SAIC.

I just applied at the website. It said Stafford, so I'm not sure. I just tried to find something I have experience with.

Did you start before or after the IPO? If you started after, you won't understand the difference in QOL from being a stock holder in a employee owned company vs this corporate pos they're becoming. Everything that made me work for SAIC is dead.

I still have some friends who work in corporate HR... I'll call and see if they have any contacts over in that region... but my people were in the towers in McLean. Do you have the job listing number for reference?

Every company will have someone who has something bad to say about it. I don't have any major issues with my company, but know at least a half-dozen people who were former employees and hated it.

I think its just a matter of job satisfaction (which can vary from job to job even in the same company), the people you work with, fair pay, and whether you find that comfortable groove or not.

Indeed, that's true. I'm just trying to find a better job right now.

The company used to be great, in my opinion, but went steadily downhill as it took on a faceless visage after the IPO.

I sure could use 'em, thanks Kenneth!


So, you need an editor or writer at your job?

Currently an SAIC employee as an Editor/Data Management for Contract Deliverables in my Health Solutions Business Unit.

I think when i started applying i can't remember how many different positions i applied for. So when i got a reply back via email i had to research what position and which location i was applying for. This was before the IPO ofcourse. What was funny was hearing a bunch of employees pulling second mortgages out to buy more stock and when SAIC went public it didn't exactly have the affect that they were were counting on.

All in all the company has been good to me and my BU has nice people to work with. So far so good on my end. BTW i am in the Skyline towers is anyone was curious.
