Public companies and financial services

Science Applications International Corp

The contracting giant works with both civilian agencies and the military and has a variety of focus areas, such as smart grid and energy technology, cloud computing and health information technology. The company had a rocky year, and Havenstein announced he will retire in 2012. SAIC removed three of its top executives in connection with its CityTime contract, a program with New York City agencies that prosecutors allege was corrupted by illegal kickbacks.


SAIC opened its office in the Washington area with a special incentive: If the staff could develop $1 million worth of revenues within 18 months, they would receive stock and become employee owners. They did just that.
