Pros & Cons

  • The induction process for graduates is absolutely fantastic; never had I had such great introduction to starting at a company. The company also offers a lot of free food and a mentor I can speak with. Having a mentor has been really valuable for me - I've learned a lot from him. It's clear that Leidos definitely cares about their employees which is good to see and it makes me feel welcomed.
  • There is a decent amount of variety in the tasks I am required to perform. I enjoy the work: it is challenging, I'm learning a lot and everyday I'm interacting with people.
  • Highly ethical! Fun, fair, safe for all, transparent, caring, flexible, consistent in improving and much more.
  • Very generous offer for graduate pay.
  • My managers are fantastic! They are approachable and listen to any ideas I have surrounding the work we're doing. They also answer my never ending list of questions without judgement.
  • Needed a security clearance makes it uncertain what you will be able to work on initially.
  • I have had several opportunities to try different things so far, but have the prospects of more to come. Things change much slower than at uni which is a shift.
  • I've had good managers during my time at Leidos. When I've had a manager who didn't focus on being a mentor or giving feedback I found a mentor in another team member.
  • In the software engineering industry, there is a severe lack of women and that is evident at Leidos. I think there is a focus on acquiring the best people for the job and therefore less of a focus on achieving diversity. There is, however, a diversity of age and ethnicity and we are an LGBT inclusive company.
  • The formal training at the beginning was ok. Nothing spectacular, but I understand its importance nonetheless. The most useful training I've done has been self-enrolled online modules.

Career Prospects
To move up the ranks a good reputation of being a reliable employee is required. It's also important to not only ensure you do good work, but ensure that those who have the ability to promote you are also aware of what you do well before you go for that promotion.

Leidos reacted extremely well to COVID-19, ensuring the safety of its employees by issuing working from home mandates well before the government took any substantial action.

My days are split between BAU (Business as Usual) work, on-going projects and training. Each day is a little different, depending on how the status of projects and BAU work.

Office Work Environment
The offices are generally nice with good facilities, there's typically some indoor plants around. The dress code depends on the office and job role, overall people dress in full business suits to smart casual clothes but the norm is a business casual dress code.

The interview and assessment process was great, especially compared to other companies. All Leidos recruiters and interviewers that I encountered were friendly and approachable. The interview felt more like a conversation which is always a plus.

Grad program have lots of development programs, we have advocacy groups running things. We've had a good induction. We use the 70:20:10 learning model.

Work Hours
I find most team members work a standard 8 hour day. Specific team members with higher workloads or more responsibility tend to work more, but I've never seen those members expect others to work more than a standard day. If you have an appointment during work hours, the company is quite flexible in allowing you to attend those sort of commitments during the day as long as you complete your work.
