Does Leidos offer massages?

Pros

Great Team, flexible, stress-free, energetic

Cons

Projects can take a long time to ramp up. There were days were I would not do much. It would be nice if they offered more office amenities such as free drinks and snacks

Does Leidos offer dental insurance?

Pros

Work from home 40-hr weeks. Never traveling to their main office.

Cons

No raise Team Lead(s) are uninformed, not supportive, aggressive, pushy and not helpful Team Managers are useless, not helpful, do not facilitate problem resolution, do not support you. You never feel that they have your back. Myriad problems exist internally in the team(s) and they do not do anything to fix. Managers are inexperienced which leads to TERRIBLE decisions making it extremely difficult to do your job. They do not hold non-performers accountable. They gossip. When bringing problems and potential resolutions forward, they ignore you. The Leidos company has a small footprint in the healthcare sector and it shows. One of the execs, Scott Gildea, will tell you "Snitches get stitches" when you voice a , concern. He would rather bully you to a point where you stop talking, and make a joke at your expense rather than listen and help an employee. We see it at Town Hall meetings, in his emails to you and in every personal interaction. He would rather boast his title then help make the job a better experience. Analysts are required to take call once every 3-4 weeks for 7 days straight for hospitals they are unfamiliar with. Not knowing build, workflows, users etc. makes it hard to field 10 tickets every 20 minutes and if you don't resolve issues for areas outside your knowledge zone you are reprimanded. Leidos also does not have standard pay practices. During a recent Town Hall meeting we learned that analysts in IL get paid "on call time" for night/weekend hours worked. CT and MA analysts do not get call pay and Scott G. will tell you to not ask those questions. Benefits are TERRIBLE! When you have questions about anything related to benefits, the typical company response is "look it up on the employee web". Benefits for your spouse that "could get benefits elsewhere" costs you an additional $110/pay period ontop of the standard coverage cost. It's a punishment. Benefits for a single/no child employee are $165/week. An ER visit is not covered with a co-pay. be prepared to pay the 80% bill after your visit as they barely cover anything. The company proudly promotes "you can be trained and work anywhere in the company" but the reality is; if you are a healthcare analyst, there is NO work in a mainly government contract based business. In turn, if you are a black hawk software analyst, the company is NOT going to train you to become a hospital software analyst. This has never happened but they tell you they will train you; don't believe it.

Advice to Management

Hire a seasoned hospital CEO and management team to manage healthcare IT contracts. Stop verbally abusing your analysts. Offer raises. Cap hours at 40-50 a week. Stop making employees work 12 hours days to support 3-5 states. Stop telling your executive team to tell emp's to buy stock options. The compensation rate for a contract at Leidos is FAR lower than any other company would offer and we can't afford your $97/share stock, even with your 10% discount. (yet they push the employee stock option sale hard and all the time)
