    A bit siloed. The mobile apps could be improved to ensure communication is streamlined. Could improve the pipeline

    Pros

    Depends on where you work within the company on how you are treated. Have worked all over and some areas are great and some (where currently am) are horrid

    Cons

    Folks: HR, WP Relations will not help you if you have a slave driver for a supervisor who is only interested in getting themselves ahead on the backs of subordinates and systematically tries to get you to resign or get you fired for bringing up issues--it will be swept under the rug. Don't believe the hype about ethics at Leidos.

    Advice to Management

    Management still thinks if they keep systematically reorganizing and laying people off, making them work harder and faster with less they will look profitable. We all know you guys want your big bonuses but at what cost.? You need to learn from your mistakes!

    I worked at Leidos (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people .A true sense of family. Work schedule a bit erratic . Just needs a continuous flow of work.

    Cons

    Management not so good. I think better interaction with labor based employees would go a long way. And make better improvements all the way around.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to detail. A hand full in patience , is better than two in toil .
    Start moving out of the past , and into the future.

    Small fish in a large pond. Rarely ever interact with people from your own company and difficult to get personalized attention when problems arise. Benefits are not spectacular
