Yep it's all true. The purchase of Engility resulted in 30% lay off of the current SAIC staff. Apparently SAIC now prefers cheaper employees rather than well trained experienced ones. SAIC is no longer the company it was when they were employed owned. Management does a "re-org" every few months, never know who your boss is from one month to the next, they send out lay-off notices and "you did a great job this year but no raise for you because we just don't have the money......fast forward a few days and they send a message to all employees how they have had 5 records setting qtrs. in a row. It's sad that this once great company has gone down this path.

SAIC does not care about loyal and skilled employees.
Yes, this is also true in my case. I was "laid off" for whatever reason they chose to give. My guess is that by reducing my higher salary they will improve their bottom line and get their managerial bonus for reducing costs. Interesting note: I am also 55 or older.
SAIC is getting rid of loyal employees who have been here for years due to their agreement with Engility to ensure their people the first opportunities for the jobs. The Washington Post reported that no layoffs to Engility due to this merger however Tony Moraco did not let them know in the interview that he was letting loyal SAIC people go to make up the difference.
As well the first wave of people they let go were 55 and older.
