    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Leidos part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good salary and work life balance.

    Cons

    No real processes in place. Bullying management structure who don’t give employees any clear work direction. Too many companies working together all with their own agendas. Management constantly covering their own backs and don’t care about their staff.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with more respect and stop fighting with each other.

    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Leidos full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work with some excellent engineering staff Exposure to some cutting edge tech Reasonable annual increases

    Cons

    Line management is a shambles therefor slowing down any possible career progression. Inability to recruit causing massive stress on existing staff.

    Advice to Management

    People managers need more time to support their staff adequately and be trained to not just moan about the things they find unfair about that part of their jobs. Goals should be more realistic to the job type.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    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
