If you like defense contracting, you'll love Leidos
Writer (Former Employee) –  AZJanuary 14, 2016
For reasons understood only by senior executives, SAIC spun off its health and defense sectors into Leidos. Leidos seemed to get the worst of SAIC in its publicly owned format ---- endless, arcane policies, excessive reliance on defense contracts, and impersonal HR and management. It took over a year for Leidos to reinstate its employee recognition program. Why? Employee recognition programs are not a big expense, but they mean a lot to employees.
Pros
Paycheck
Cons
Low raises, huge useless middle management tier, tone deaf about employee relations, you're only as good as your current contract job

Team Lead on Government Contract
Team Leader/Manager (Current Employee) –  Springfield, VAMarch 6, 2016
Leidos is a good company to work for. It is continually picking up more business with the most recent purchase of Lockheed Martin's IT contracts. The company offers great benefits. However, the salaries are not competitive with market salaries and find that employees do not remain long term and often bounce from contract to contract to return to Leidos to be compensated for a higher salary range.
Pros
Good Benefits and PTB
Cons
Salaries are not competitive with market salaries

Too much stress and work and not enough time
Project Accounting Admin (Current Employee) –  Oak Ridge, TNFebruary 17, 2016
Since the split with SAIC, this company has gone downhill alot. The benefits are poor and the stress of being a "shared service center" is hard to keep a positive attitude. My co-workers are really nice but everyone is feeling the pressure and job security is not good.

Average Company
Course Lead/Manager (Current Employee) –  Anniston, ALFebruary 8, 2016
Average company to work for. Average management. Limited career potential or upward mobility. Long days, 60-70 hour weeks with only modest pay. Stressful work environment, and high expectations with limited resources. Unrealistic goals, and weak managers.

Good place to gain insight into enterprise level network management
Network Engineer (Current Employee) –  Bethesda, MDJanuary 23, 2016
Good place for a career development but not for internal promotions. Company work culture is client-based; care all about meeting customer SLA and not that well with staff.

Leidos does not value it's employee's loyalty or contributions
Manager of Operations (Current Employee) –  Service CenterApril 16, 2016
The recent awards given this company as a good place to work are a joke. Just last week more reorganizations were announced and more good employees laid off. The new management couldn't care less about its employees. They reorganize and move jobs without any thought of long term loyal employees who will lose their jobs. Minorities and women are rarely considered for senior positions and they tout their veteran hiring which is typical ex-military white males placed in the senior leadership roles that can influence the government customers to further their own agendas. They will lay off 20 plus year emoloyees that are close to tetirement with higher salaries and avoid paying out unvested accounts and options to save a buck.
Pros
None - stay away
Cons
Lack of commitment to employees

Not for a family man
Staff Environmental Scientist (Current Employee) –  PennsylvaniaSeptember 15, 2015
Too much expected travel and poor management. Work hours are either very long or none at all. Not a stable job and no room for advancement. Poor benefits. No job security and no guarantee of full time hours even for a full time position.
Pros
Per diem while traveling
Cons
Healthcare, work environment, poor management

No stability offered
Sr. Consultant (Current Employee) –  RemoteMarch 3, 2016
As long as you are billable, the management never reaches out to you. When you are not billable (on the bench) you only hear from management to let you know when your bench time will end.
Pros
Good learning opportunity at client sites
Cons
no support from management. Only useful as long as you are billable.

Fun work with great people
Role Player (Current Employee) –  Anniston, ALJanuary 19, 2016
I come in to work every day and meet new people from all over the country. The management is very receptive and willing to work with the employees. My co-workers have been helpful and make each day fun and exciting. My job allows me to be creative and expressive in ways that no other job I've had allows.
Pros
Rewarding, enjoyable work
Cons
Not as many hours as I would like to have

- The pay is below average but it is still good and stable.
- Your schedule if very flexible
- Vacation time is good.
- Co-Workers are okay. Some places always have that one boss'es pet that make other people miserable. This place has one.
- Over-all if you want an easy clock-in clock-out job that pays well for what it is; this is the right job for you.

Disorganized
Employee (Current Employee) –  Oak Ridge, TennesseeMay 27, 2015
This place is so disorganized! Way too much overtime, no work/life balance. The split has not been good for the company. Takes so long to get something simple done. Very top heavy with too many managers and not enough other staff. Too much favoritism in job advancement. Everyone has the attitude that they are the most important person in the company. Work force is tired and unfriendly.
Pros
A few nice people.
Cons
Work/life balance, favoritism, disorganization, too many hires from within making a stale work force, too many layers of management.

Well established company with a positive work environment
AR Lead (Current Employee) –  Tucson, AZMay 3, 2016
A typical day at work includes preparing close to 15 detailed, compliant invoices a day. This includes, but is not limited to, acquiring and providing backup documents such as Excel spreadsheets, expense reports and subcontractor invoices, preparing government-required documents, maintaining an accurate calculation of funds available for billing, and insuring documents are submitted in a timely manner. As this company is primarily Government contracting, the absolute requirement is compliance. Contracts must be analyzed and followed to the letter. I enjoy working here as there is never a loss for something to do, and every contract/"job" is different, requiring complete attention to detail. The biggest challenge to this job is the same thing... there is never a dull moment! I work with many people as this is a big office, and all of them are professional, dedicated employees. The management is willing to support, train and step in when the need arises. Although they are all very busy, for the most part they still find the time.
Pros
Management does not feel the need to micro-manage. They know they have employed the best
Cons
Cons: Not much chance for advancement

Okay place to work if you don't mind having any job security
GIS Analyst (Former Employee) –  Chantilly, VAOctober 6, 2015
Not much growth opportunities here. I did enjoy working with my coworkers and it was very laid-back. There was little job security which was very stressful when waiting on getting new contracts. Healthcare benefits were pretty awful.

Management was inexperienced, unprofessional and unethical; they hired inexperienced staff and promoted a hostile work environment; managers gave out private employee information while expecting the employees to keep the same confidential; work was not clearly described during interviews because managers did not know what the job was
Pros
Good location
Cons
Poor management; unprofessional behavior

Training Instructor III (Current Employee) –  Anniston, ALNovember 24, 2015
Fun work place with management. I am given the ability to recognize company objectives, foresees the solutions, develop approaches, and capitalize on time management. As a team leader I am known to demonstrate realistic and innovative plans to deliver training, employ, guide, and encourage others to surpass forward for success.

Working at customer site
Site / Area Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Springfield, VAApril 23, 2016
The agency was in a poorly run series of mishaps as they sought to "bring" several outlying offices under one roof. The company was in a panic mode to meet agency requirements. The requirements changed with a change of government leadership.
Pros
Some co-workers were great people.
Cons
As a contractor, most govies were obnoxious.
