I worked at Leidos full-time (More than a year)

Pros

People truly care about the performing great research. Senior management works at being fair across all levels.

Cons

Two many contracting organizations with their fingers in the pot. Different groups run by different contractors sometimes clash when it comes to the end game. Government can be wishy washy on requirements and move the goal posts setting up for failure.

Advice to Management

Continue working towards transparency across all contractors and government contacts. Get some better healthcare and give a little more vacation when a senior person joins. Try to give your people better info when it comes to pay during a government shutdown or issue. You will loose a lot good talent when your people are always in fear of their next paycheck.

    I have been working at Leidos full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    With the shutdown they worked hard to keep employees informed and engaged. We knew where we stood and how things were going to affect us. Plus with the split from SAIC there was tons of support helping make things smooth.

    Cons

    The name is really weird and people keep asking you why its so dumb.I feel like some hipster came up with the name and it confuses people when you explain its meaning. Also Purple is not a great color for defense contracting. I would also say once your locked into a pay band your stuck there and Its hard to get a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees more. Change the name

    I have been working at Leidos full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work is challenging and relevant.
    You are generally given latitude in your opportunities with customer interactions.
    Management does not overly involve themselves in your daily activity.

    Cons

    Since the split between SAIC and Leidos management have SEVERELY restructured employee benefits.
    Cuts in insurance.
    Cuts to employer contributions to 401k
    Cuts to Health Savings Accounts funds.
    Reduction in ability to carry leave from year to year, or accrue leave beyond the cap for the present year.

    Advice to Management

    You are going to lose senior members of your teams because of your restructuring. Your ability to make money is directly related to your employees. By cutting benefits employees will simply seek better organizations. SAIC was on it's way down before the split and it seems that Leidos is following that trend. A very disappointing way ahead for this company.
