      Pros

      You can work from almost anywhere in the world as long as you have good internet connection. And you can choose which currency to be paid in, US dollars or local currency. And at least theoretically you can take as much time off as you like, whenever you want.

      Cons

      You work as an independent contractor so there is no pension plan, retirement benefits, health insurance etc. They wire your salary directly from the U.S. so each time you receive your pay, your bank deducts a foreign transaction service fee of about $8~$9 which adds up the longer you work. Also, you don't know how permanent the job is, for example if it will disappear after the contracted number of years.

      Pros

      Good Salary, Supervisor, and Team

      Cons

      The company has no sick leave policy. You have to schedule your sick leave as PTO. If your body gives you a 24 hour notice of sickness you will be OK. If not, do not work for this company. If you are over 40 or have any illness that could potentially impact your schedule, even for one day a year, you do not need to work for Leidos. Short term and long term disability is a “benifit” but you will be terminated long before they will let you take it. You are required to pay for internet service and cell phones that are used for company business. If you drop your personal cell phone and break it. You had better immediately buy a brand new one because if they can’t get a hold of you, fired! Is the internet at your home unreliable? You have to buy yourself a wifi hotspot and pay the service for Leidos business use. You need to print something? You better buy a good printer for Leidos and paper and too.

      Great Company With Excellent Pay and Benefits

      Pros

      The pay and benefits at Leidos were great. If they take over a contract they may offer time in service from the previous company. Which is a awesome benefit for contractors having to switch over.

      Cons

      Hiring at Leidos is a number game, in which people with zero experience are hired as along as they can fill seats. Creating an imbalance in the workforce.

      Can have pockets of "good ol' boys" clubs. I've seen one particularly awful program manager that wasn't dealt with and eventually was promoted to lead an entire Divsion.

      Pros

      Great benefits, company clearly cares about its employees.

      Cons

      The site i work at has become a toxic working environment over the last year. It's not a super competitive environment, but people have been trying to make others look bad to make themselves look better. There's no other way to describe it than toxic.
