Infrastructure (Former Employee) – High Point, NC – August 10, 2015
Management has no regard for employees. There is no work life balance. Promotion is contingent upon nepotism or having a manager that likes you. Your ability and skill set do not factor into the equation. If a position is posted they already have the person who's going to fill it - that's merely a formality. In fact, at times, they don't bother to post it they just put the person in the job whether qualified or not. They are change averse. This is the way they've been doing things for years and that's how they plan to continue.
Lack of organization and professionalism, no work life balance, nepotism, resistance to change
Engineer (Current Employee) – Herndon, VA – June 11, 2016
A culture of innovation is discussed within but does adequately describe all the LGS represents. Collegial, technology everywhere, hard problems, important mission, customer preference, a true national treasure. LGS is one of a kind. Many talk about it but LGS lives it.
Technology, culture, ethics, mission-alignment
Not for everyone. Mediocrity will stand out (not in a good way). For 'A-game' players only.

LGS Innovations is a great place to work, with varied duties and technologies to work on. At times, the work-life balance gets out of whack, but in general is pretty good. One thing that could use improvement is steering more toward long-term production quality, maintainable code rather than quick prototypes.
Lots of different technologies and opportunities
Fairly high code debt, rigid internally developed frameworks
Work/Life balance hideous. Management Horrible. Don't do it!
HR (Former Employee) – Herndon, VA – May 21, 2014
Went to work for this company as they transitioned with ALU. IT was a NIGHTMARE!!!!!! They are not at all compliant with anything. They are the most disorganized organization in the government contracting business. If you want work/life balance, this is not the job for you. They say, "we want you to enjoy family" -Maybe the pictures on your desk. In DC, you must live to work!!!! The management is not at all aware of what is going on in the real world with software, laws, etc.
