    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 10 years)

    Pros

    With Roger Krone at the helm, corporate leadership continues to make changes for the better. It offers opportunities to move around, the Lockheed Martin personnel who joined when Leidos purchased a book of their business, are a breath of fresh air; with them on board Leidos is finally moving away from the old SAIC mentality and Divisions and Operations are starting to work together and collaborate on work. A lot of unclassified positions offer an opportunity to telecommute. Good employee benefits.

    Cons

    Communication in general is still an issue although the different Hubs on the employee intranet help somewhat. There can be some of the it's not what you know, but who you know. HR needs to catch up with the times and truly support staff. If you need or want more than on-the-job-training, forget it. No training budgets!

    Advice to Management

    Engage with your people! Don't just hear them, but listen to them and act on their ideas once in a while. People get tired of trying and give up and give less and then leave.

    I have been working at Leidos full-time

    Pros

    If the traditional government contractor like Lockheed Martin or Boeing is a monolithic mainframe computer, Leidos is a decentralized distributed network united only in name and the color purple.

    This means the work you do depends entirely on your role and location. Working at one customer site won't be like working at another or working as management.

    Salary and benefits are pretty good. So is job security.

    Cons

    At a customer site, management might have no idea what you actually do or why. This makes knowing what you should be doing a test of your general competency in areas you may not have been hired for.

    Advice to Management

    Stop chiseling away at benefits and vacation time/cutting corners with employees.

    Pros

    I was lucky to work with the team always focus on delivering high quality products to customers.Most professional people out there, I miss working in that Team.

    Cons

    If your contracts is over, not easy to find another job. Pretty much you are by your own.

    I have been working at Leidos full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Get to work with amazing military, government and civilian professionals.

    Cons

    Contract issues; always concerned with IF the contract will go to this company or that company on a consistent basis and IF there will be continued positions and support.

    Advice to Management

    I would keep the communications about contracts to a minimum; only give information when there is information to give.
