    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 worked at Leidos full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've worked for many companies. Most were pretty good, but I'd rate Leidos near the top.
    * good benefits
    * projects are well-staffed by smart people
    * work environment is challenging but not overwhelming

    Cons

    * program management is hit-and-miss. I've had great PMs and so-so PMs.
    * ESPP requires holding stock for two years ~ that could be better

    Advice to Management

    I believe policy is for meetings with PMs and higher-ups on a regular basis. I have rarely seen that. I'd like to know more about what's going on within the company.
    On a similar vein, please be more transparent.

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

    Pros

    It truly is a great group of people who really want to make a difference. I actually enjoy coming to work and doing my job. They offer a great benefits, PTO, etc., package. If you are someone with a family this is a great company who understands a work/life balance as well.

    Cons

    The only reason for the 4 stars and not 5 are lay offs happen frequently and there is
    not really a lot of room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest doing more company wide calls and be as transparent as possible. With the commercial health side being smaller and the "everyone knows everyone" environment the rumors fly (good or bad).

    Cons

    The environment was not the best at the time, but was getting better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep taking care of your people!

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

    Pros

    Many contracts, many different positions, decent benefits

    Cons

    I was given a benefits plan 3 months before I started, which then changed to a slightly less attractive package once I actually received my employment contract.
