    I have been working at Leidos full-time

    Pros

    Work environment, coworkers and team leads are great to with. Workloads vary from contracts and program teams scheduling so it is either really busy or down time. Everyone works as a team and helps out if others get swamped.

    Cons

    Working occasional weekends when needed

    Advice to Management

    No Sunday’s

    Pros

    Chalenging career and great people

    Cons

    Promotion opertunities usually when you put in your notice.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep good people don’t wait until they put in there notice before you offer them a promotion. At that point they already made their decision and it will be harder to get them to stay.

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

    Pros

    - Great co-workers
    - Cool projects to work on
    - Friendly environment
    - Good corporate structure and principles
    - Lots of funding (job security)
    - Decent benefits

    Cons

    - Not all employees work at Leidos owned facilities (meaning poor working environments for some.)
    - Benefits are "industry standard", so nothing is above or beyond the basics
    - Lots of labor contracts and not a ton of Leidos projects.
    - Focused a lot on government/DoD clients

    Advice to Management

    I would personally like to see Leidos invest more in the products they work on and less on finding contracts that give people work. There are lots of opportunities to take ownership of the software we create and sell it to a broader audience. Sending more money in R&D to create reusable software products could create a lot of revenue. This could also help give newer career oriented individuals more direct purpose and input in the products they help develop.

    Pros

    Very positive, team oriented atmosphere. Great bosses who listen and appreciate your suggestions. No pressures of matrices comparing you with your colleagues. They allow and sponsor certification programs. Also very flexible with time off, and encourage furthering skills education.

    Cons

    Pay is low in terms of skills and responsibility. Could be better when compared to other companies doing the same work. Performance feedback aside from the usual “good job “ is non existent. Not a big problem, but could help guide to better work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    I’m very happy with my managers. Maybe they could implement a mentoring system and give more feedback about performance and how to improve educational tracks. Besides that, they are great!

    Pros

    If you are a self starter you will do great here.

    Cons

    The company can seem very large at times, but they still do a great job at not making you feel like you're just a number

    Pros

    Employee communication is great. Any question that you can think of can be answered by other employees.

    Cons

    Can be a bit hard in some case to work out their online system, everything is done on through the internet, and requires a lot downloads for all documents.

    Pros

    The challenge is awesome and they will give you as much responsibility as you want. Because of the high turnover rate you can easily move into different areas and take on larger challenges. You will be pushed out of your comfort zone if you let them so you have the ability to gain knowledge you may have not had the opportunity to learn somewhere else. The people working here are very good people and a pleasure to work with so you will make a lot of contacts to add to your professional network.

    Cons

    As you take on more responsibility and more challenging projects you are not compensated for it, causing the high turnover rate. They are not big on promoting from within. This does however give anyone looking for some experience a great place to get it, unfortunately to mover up they will have to find a job somewhere ells.

    If this rating was for a great starting point it would be a five star rating but because most of these positions are for individuals who have had a lot of experience over their careers I have to give it a two star rating. If you stayed with this company over a long period of time and excepted their pace for your career growth you will end up leaving a lot of money and benefits on the table. When I was there we lost a lot of very good people who almost doubled their salary just by going somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to eliminate mixed signals given by upper management and do not wait for someone to give notice before you offer them a promotion. Once someone finds another position with another company you put yourself i a bidding war. Preventing someone you want to keep from leaving you need to protectively work on keeping them. It is too easy for someone to see what is out there these days and there are no real retirement benefits given by companies that cant be rolled over to a new 401K somewhere else.

    The workforce has adjusted to the new job market but companies are still struggling to make the adjustment themselves.
