    I worked at Leidos full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work/life Balance Working from home Good benefits

    Cons

    No real chance of career progression Too much restructuring More concerned with quick returns than good products/software Lack of middle management High staff turnover

    Advice to Management

    If you are "committing" to develop your staff. See it through and support them, don't recognise your talent (not in terms of spot awards) and help them achieve their full potential. Spending a year working towards promotions which never existed results in staff turnover

    I worked at Leidos full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There is some flexibility with working hours but not too much. They are biased when they allow flexibility though. City Center Location, close to train station.

    Cons

    Pay for car parking- famous for hiring people and then firing them or make them redundant. Culture and values don't reflect in their behaviors, screaming, shouting, swearing, very bad office politics. No sharing and caring environment.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees and ensure values and culture are monitored.

    I have been working at Leidos full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Well placed to really thrive, many good staff still there, for now. Flexible working available and better conditions than many.

    Cons

    Lack of investment - focus on cost cutting to be more competitive but in doing so have reduced strategically important facilities such as collaborative bid spaces and customer demo abilities. Senior management recruitment seems to focus on those with previous links to target sectors rather than actual skills to make the required changes to the business. Too many talented people are leaving but plenty of dead wood... still being cycled around.

    Advice to Management

    Invest before it’s too late in well placed bid and demo space to give a sense of permanence and determination to grow, you have to do this to compete with the kinds of competitors we’re up against. This will also help staff retention assuming you’re done with standardising benefits ie picking the cheapest option.
