My experience here has been great. A lot of knowledgeable individuals on my team. Within this past year I have learned a lot that I plan to use for the remainder of my career. Design is an... interesting field. There are plenty of good and bad designs so actually seeing how things are built and used is super good experience.
Not so many cons for this role. The leadership here seems pretty good in terms of understanding work life balance. I haven't been forced to do anything out of my comfort zone.
Great salary and benefits. Minimal supervision from offsite supervisor. Enough meetings to have good colleague relationships. Flexible hours, some of it remote from anywhere. Fairly casual dress for... working with children.
The only downside is they are kind of famous for technical problems on the company issued iPads and iPhones. However, this is a known issue and technical problems have never been held against me, or... have slowed work during work hours, which are pretty flexible anyway. Some of the on-site staff are not exactly warm to this contractor position, but most are and I just steer clear of negative people. I do have a minor disability and the contractor site was not helpful accommodating me, but Leidos did try. That won’t affect most people.
