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

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to prove yourself and take on the big complex work.

    Cons

    You work with alot of 'talkers' rather than the ideal 'doers' in a project delivery environment. Spent alot of time carrying people through which impacted opportunities to take on any career development / training such as certifications and not to mention unnecessary additional workload and the stress that comes with it.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the doers for executing projects and look after the people who 'own' their work and perform well.

    Pros

    Global capability - shame the values and capability of the global company are not leveraged for Australia

    Cons

    Dreadful on-boarding process
    New people are treated with suspicion and existing people are threatened by anyone showing capability - new staff can be undermined so they don’t show-up the inadequacy of the old timers
    Executives are second rate and could not get a job elsewhere - they have mostly been there for a very long time because no-one else would employ them
    Executives claim to have “ethics”, strong employee support and flexible working arrangements - none of this is true
    Executives are creepy, nasty and underhanded - seem to waste a lot of time in trying to destroy people rather than getting on with doing something productive
    Poorly run organisation that doesn’t have a snowflake’s chance in hell of selling anything of value beyond existing customer base
    Bullying is rife in the organisation

    Advice to Management

    Try to update yourselves and “modernise” your draconian work practises
    Get rid of any executives with “mental health” issues
    You would do well to live by the values and ethics you claim to have
    Shame - company has so much potential, but current executives haven’t got the ability to take it into the future.

    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.

    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.

    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!
