    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!

    I worked at Leidos full-time

    Pros

    They supply fruit and coffee making facilities for free and the other staff are great to work with and friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Paid monthly and not a very good pay. No overtime given only time in lue. I don't feel the higher up Managers really care about the people doing the work.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your workers better and you will keep them. Pay overtime and pay the staff that work different shifts penalty rates. A lot of the people you pay small sallaries to are also the face of the company.
