As an SAIC employee in Ms. Alderson's organization it makes me proud to be associated with such an outstanding leader/manager. While currently working for SAIC, I am also a retired federal employee (with 35 years of service) and in spite of what some folks say about "Contractors", we are all on the same team. To the extent that we as contractors make our Federal Customers successful,our companies are successful and the nation as a whole is successful
