    I have been working at Leidos full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Relatively low stress
    Co workers are cool
    It's a job

    Cons

    Very little to no opportunities for advancement
    The benefits are terrible.
    The split from SAIC was a mistake, and the company has acknowledged as much by recently terminating the CEO.
    The company's name 'Leidos' was chopped from the word 'Kaleidoscope' and often gets mistaken for a local D.C. pizza chain.
    Management cares very little about their employees.
    Job security is dependent on contract wins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please realize or at least acknowledge the talent you have. Please stop trying to squeeze blood from a turnip by removing what benefits we have left.

    I have been working at Leidos full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    some really great people down in the trenches and even a few good sr. management folks.

    Cons

    incredibly poor and disconnected CEO, Board, and COO. They are full of grandiose words but have no idea what a true leader is all about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get out of your offices and meet with us for lunch once in a while instead of eating at Morton's or Passion Fish and then openly bragging about it to the Washington Business Journal. Is re-doing your new office space in Reston really worth the thousands of people you laid off this year? I can't tell you who my division manager is and I'm pretty sure he/she doesn't know me either.
