Supervision was exceptional

Featured review

Leidos selected this as a representative review
My job was a Military Family Life Counselor. My supervisor possessed a generous amount of experience doing the job I did in the past. She understood and the nuances of the and was able to verbally guide me through challenges. The daily situation at work as very satisfying and rewarding, working with military members and families. MFLCs also work closely with military unit command staff members and conduct briefing for varying situations.

My first job out of college, and it was a good place to work. I found the remote working policy to be very fair (two times a month; not sure what it's like now), and my coworkers were friendly and skilled. There are career development and training opportunities for early-career employees.The organization I was in was frequently restructuring, so in my ~2 years there I was moved to different contracts and management groups many times. Just felt like I was all over the place.In my time there I got to work with modern tech stacks in an Agile environment, and also legacy code in waterfall-style. Just depends on the project you're in.Most people work remote, so the office can get quite empty. The Gaithersburg location does have catered lunch, a mini kitchen, and a nice gym.

not recommend if you are looking for stability

Company offers decent pay rate, you have flexible schedule but there is no bench policy so if there is no work, you don't get paid. Insurance plan is a bit high.

Decent company to work for

Decent company to work for, although pay was an issue for some employees. Management seemed mostly willing to work around shift issues. Lenient during the holidays.

Great Coworkers, Average benefits

Working for Leidos was a lot of fun. Being at a remote location made it hard to feel like a part of the Leidos team, but the community I worked with was great.

Good place

Good place to work for. Good pay and benefits. Pto is amazing and can't beat some of the perks. They allow for a great work life balance and always have time for my family.

Great Company to work for.

Good employer to work for, large company with many areas of work and projects to be able to move around to. Large Dept of defense contractor. Global reach.

Great team, but some disorganization

Our program had great flexibility and support for employees as individuals. However, it also grew very quickly so a lot of the work processes need ironing out to be less confusing and more streamlined. But for the most part, you work with really good people who want to see you succeed.


Flexible schedule, hybrid schedule, understanding and kind leadership

Great project lead and interesting work

Work is satisfying and on the company side the lead is knowledgeable and great to work for. As a contractor the company does not control the actual work or workplace environment. Experience can vary greatly depending on client

Everything was great from simple employees to Management

It was a pleasure working for Leidos, I learned a lot from working there, new skills and more experience. I developed Curriculums, QC lessons, prepare student’s assessments and Homework., monitoring students advancement and levels of learning before taking their tests.

Professional and rewarding workplace.

Leidos fosters a wonderful environment to work and grow as an individual and professional. While there are many perks to working there the most rewarding is the abundance of high caliber people you will work with.

Productive sometimes

What is the best part of working at the company?Great company but some of the middle momagers are not the best What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Provided a job, no tools or place to sit to perform your duties. Either they over hired with no room for employees to sit. It seems every one of the managers calls their own shhots as they see fitWhat is the work environment and culture like at the company?Ai all depends each day where they have you sit to do your job. Not everyone was lucky to have a desk or permabanned desk. Furthermore, some of the momagers are way over their heads, they can come across like they own the companyWhat is a typical day like for you at the company?It can be relaxing and it can be stressful. It all depends

Don't work for the sub contractor

They have a hard time keeping positions and are not the prime. When there are cuts, they are the first people to get the axe. They do not keep people on overhead.

Could have been better

The coworkers were great, the customer was great. Managers on the project were completely disconnected. Work hours were ridiculous but optional and were needed because of poor planning.

Overall review with company

One of the greatest jobs I’ve ever had no exaggeration. Room for growth, great boss, manageable work and plenty of time to be able to handle your personal stuff.

Great benefits

The benefits are great and PTO starts accruing on the first day! Never work overtime, so that can be great or bad however you see it. Pay is competitive.

Great Environment. Not so great pay

Leidos has good benefits and is a comfortable place to work. It’s great to learn and get into power distribution, but hard work isn’t always rewarded pay is below industry standard.

One of the best jobs that I've ever had

I loved working for Leidos. The workload was manageable, but the work was still a little challenging. They treat their employees fairly, and I feel like the politics was minimal.
