    I worked at Leidos full-time

    Pros

    Good salary, Good bid strategy

    Cons

    Crisis management environment, high-staff turnover, appalling internal IT systems, - lots of rhetoric about work-life balance etc but in reality you are just a number there to generate revenue. Rushed, sloppy approach towards everything. Generally just an unpleasant place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Get your house in order. Focus on quality ahead of winning work just to get money in the door. Fix your internal IT systems - they are a disgrace.

    I worked at Leidos full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A great group of local talented staff. Good support from US parent company.

    Cons

    Australian leadership believes their own marketing about being inclusive and a great place to work. Unfortunately, this is not how it is every day. Staff are treated as disposable commodities. A lost opportunity to be a great company. Being driven by small-minded egos.

    Advice to Management

    Time to put big boy pants on and run the company for the benefit of customer and staff and not for ego enrichment.

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

    Pros

    Most colleagues well intentioned and capable with a core of world class professionals

    Cons

    If you like 14hr days and working multiple projects with little support this is the company for you...IT systems are a baffling maze of ineffective and un-intuitive applications with no training.. .and don't worry about your security clearance.... 'cause neither will Leidos!

    Advice to Management

    Execs should have a close look at themselves....and maybe move a few on... start making timely decisions instead of ignoring problems until it's too late then playing catchup!
