    I worked at Leidos full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Heavy emphasis on employee ethics.

    Cons

    Quite a few managers, especially in the Shared Services group not interested in developing or retaining employees. Salaries aren't competitive. Culture changed significantly after going public.

    Advice to Management

    If you want positions filled, you need to be realistic with the compensation you offer.


  2. "A a lot of interesting scientific and engineering work opportunities but very political and insular top leadership."

    I have been working at Leidos full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people in the line organizations, family oriented, very educated and professional people, good pay, encourage work-life balance, invest in training and education. Literally some of the finest people you will ever meet work in this company.

    Cons

    Benefits are steadily eroding, bonuses are slowly being redirected to top tier managers, especially executives, strategy is focused on cutting cost, no meaningful research being done despite immense operating cash and cash balances, executive management fixated on looking like main competitors to impress investors, requiring huge culture changes and a top down mentality, so constant reorganizations occur that kill strategic momentum (and some careers) and cost a lot of money. Literally hundreds of layoffs of good people in favor of outsourced business solutions or shared services - part of a predominating trend in the industry of accepting the 80% solution for business operations, leaving executives happy but leaving professionals and employees frustrated and accepting of failure.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to entrepreneurship and let the company grow from the bottom up. The next big profit generator isn't going to come from acquisition or a big contract win, it'll come from somebody working hard and hitting a home run by being innovative and smart. Reward people for taking risks.
