Culture at Leidos

Please describe your company's culture both in the office and after hours. Let us know about the structure and hierarchy, cooperation and teamwork, and socialising amongst colleagues.

Company culture seems great. Most people are easy going and playful in the office, always trying to have a good time. Management also tries to coordinate social activities after hours occasionally which is nice. It's quite structured with a well defined hierarchy. I have a team lead, who has a boss, who has a boss, who has a boss, etc. The company structure is detailed. We work in teams, but are siloed on projects at the current time. We try and work in the agile methodology, to varying degrees of success. But the team is very helpful in helping me resolve problems.

There is always a constant drive for excellence within all divisions of Leidos and there is endless support and teamwork that goes into achieving this. Everyone is very approachable (including executives). I have had multiple social occasions with my colleagues that have been a lot of fun and I am always looking forward to the next outing.

The culture is very good here. Everyone is friendly and you can have a good conversation with anyone, regardless of their position. After hours is just as friendly with the occasional events and Friday night drinks.

The age group and background of employees is very varied ranging from 21-50. As many people are working on projects in separate areas it is often hard to interact with people outside of your small project team. Outside of work, there are a small group of people who organise functions every few months as my particular office is located a fair distance from the city. Staff in the city office probably have more of a social culture after work as venues are more easily accessible.

Amicable. Friendly. Professional. Nationalistic. Dedicated. Vertical hierarchy aligning with military rank, yet a more easy going and moderately-paced environment, especially when it comes to socialising among work mates with breakfasts, morning teas, lunches, and occasionally dinners. Everyone here has a story and a part to play.

Socializing is encouraged and there is plenty of opportunity for team building. All employees have similar attitudes and a sense of humor so it is easy to get along with everyone. Employees who go against the grain and stir up trouble are removed fairly quickly.

Everyone I have spoken with has been nice, professional and interesting. Several lunches and work dinners have been provided.

Both of the teams I have worked in have been spread mainly over Melbourne and Canberra. I work closely with a supervisor who supervises my day-to-day activities and I have a manager or two who I know I can turn to if I face any difficulties. The people are sociable and are more than happy to sit down and help you if you have any questions. Everyone is friendly enough to carpool to team events, and the conversations over the lunch/dinner tables are never dry.

People are open to provide their thoughts and suggestions to projects. Colleagues are very friendly and enjoy socialising with each-other, often planning weekly activities.
Graduate, Melbourne
Relatively flat management structure (at least where we are). Teams are friends and cooperative. Lots of socialising amongst colleagues, especially on Friday (morning tea/after work drinks).
Graduate, Melbourne
Culture is somewhat behind other organizations that favour a more friendly and less formal approach to hierarchy, cooperation, teamwork and socialisation. Integrating new team members can be a lengthy process.
Graduate, Melbourne
Colleagues are friendly and always eager to help. Frequently go out for lunch with fellow members of the team.
Graduate, Melbourne
The company culture is very friendly with people readily answering any questions that I have.
Graduate, Canberra
In the office the culture is alright, too many people in my workplace are much older than me though. There is a very small crew who is younger and willing to go for mid-day runs and gym sessions. After hours, there is very little culture. The only culture is being driven by the younger crowd and even then, they all are reluctant to do much.
