    I have been working at Leidos full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Leidos was only formed in the last five years and has had incredible growth in the industry. They continue to develop their business while focusing on their principle of employee retention and training.

    Cons

    Leidos is a growing company that focuses on it's employees. They have several internal development programs, which leads to greater retention. This could create a road block for advancement, but the training allows you to broaden your skills to branch out into new fields.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow the company, focusing on good employee retention and training. Internal development of your staff keeps the company strong at the core, but don't neglect to new talent coming into the family.

    I have been working at Leidos full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Relaxed work environment
    - Flexible hours
    - Good benefits
    - Mostly interesting work with plenty to learn

    Cons

    - Leadership doesn't seem to listen to their developers and sometimes cram work into our schedules in underhanded ways
    - Mangers don't stand up for their constituents as much as we would like
    - Not really any "fun" things to do at the office

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to disagree with the leadership above you, you can't be a yes-man all the time, you need to stand up for your developers, otherwise they'll burn out and leave.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment & you will be challenged because something always comes up/goes wrong before plane certification. Listing this as a pro because these moments keep you on your toes, prepare you to avoid the same mistakes & ultimately sharpens your sword.

    Cons

    The environment can get overly political & the good ole boy network is always in play.

    Advice to Management

    Clean House!

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

    Pros

    Work location and the option to telework.

    Cons

    Management- the managers seem to know little to nothing about the job tasks that are handed down from the client. The managers at Leidos are not properly trained, and “are faking it, until they make it!” It is sad to have to work under managers that do not know their job responsibilities. They are ineffective in leading and guiding their employees. Most of the time, I am directed to someone else to answer questions that my manager should clearly know. There is also a ton of micromanagement. When deadlines are given, there is immense pressure to meet those deadlines, with limited amount of instruction, usually it ends with multiple people being consulted on how to get the job done and the manager micromanaging the whole effort.

    Advice to Management

    Learn your job and do your job.
