SAIC has an interesting recruiting and retention challenge. It’s an extremely diversified, decentralized, $7-billion, employee-owned corporation. Just to give you an idea, SAIC has over 500 divisions operating somewhat like their own companies, although quite often they must act in unison to perform on large contracts. At any one time, we have more than 5,000 active contracts. Our challenge: to recruit, retain, and reward entrepreneurial people, who are also team players, in order to grow the company.
