    Pros

    I really can't think of any good reason to work there.

    Cons

    You can't take any vacation time off during the first 6 months of employment. That being said, you are the only one who is still working during holidays if it happens to be within that so-called 6 month introductory phase.
    There is no career development there. The only way to get promotion is to find another job. The work they do is, to put it kindly, useless.

    Pros

    At the Division level and lower, there is a very good dedicated, technical staff that strives for excellence in the work they perform.

    Cons

    A very risk adverse, upper management at the Operations, Group and Sector levels lack vision and leadership skills. The primary corporate vision appears to be returning value to the major shareholders and top management with heavy stock holdings via the recent IPOs (split of SAIC and Leidos) and a potential merger/acquisition in the near future. The company unfortunately lacks identity and almost all levels due to the nature of our business. Leidos is a portfolio company of a wide range of government contracts and services. If you ask upper management if they support a particular business, industry, initiative, or opportunity, they will inevitably look at a spreadsheet to answer the question. The lack of trust of the individuals that actually write the proposals, bring in the work, execute the work and ensure customer satisfaction is highly evident as one engages management at the Operations level and higher. The company is managed by lackluster, visionless process pushers. It has evolved into a company where those that perform real work serve the process management drones instead of process serving those that carry on the real work. Unfortunately, it appears that the company will be in for much more downside as working staff gets reduced and upper management stays the same or expands. The top heavy feeling at Leidos will eventually be the downfall as it has in so many companies jam packed with middle management. Leidos (formerly SAIC) used to be a great company to work at but the lack of support and commitment from upper management at multiple levels makes it highly undesirable these days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management, and that includes the COO and CEO levels needs to reduce the multitude of process pushers that bring little value and drive inefficiency by throwing the same processes at every opportunity regardless of pricing magnitude. Management has to restore mutual trust in their technical staff and support them appropriately and demonstrate commitment. Management has to realize that process should serve those that perform real work and not the opposite.
