Management at Leidos

How accessible are managers and do they make good mentors? You may want to address internal communication, performance feedback or praise and recognition.

Managers are fairly accessible, and team leads are available most of the time which is great. Management provide an average level or mentorship, but mentors were assigned to us outside our teams. I've taken initiative to get an "unofficial" mentor which has been working well.

The managers are always in touch with the work I am doing and everyday there is communication from them about the project and deadlines that need to be met.

Managers know their topics and projects very well, and are extremely helpful when running into problems. They will help you out if you encounter problems and let you know how you're going.

Generally managers and other staff are highly accessible and respond swiftly to calls/emails. They are pretty busy but do make a point of stopping by to check in on projects every few weeks. As with most things though, you get out what you put in, the more you make the effort to contact and chat with your manager the more you get noticed and receive feedback.

Rarely see the managers. They do praise the team overall but never any individual praise.

Management make excellent mentors provided you are able to book time with them early.

Feedback, praise and recognition is sometimes lacking but managers are very approachable and friendly.

Managers are generally busy with meetings, but always available to schedule time if you need to see them. Superiors are always available, you interact more with the supervisor than the manager. The graduate program also offers a mentor outside of your day-to-day department. Internal communication is frequent, sometimes overwhelming. The company is currently in a transition stage, and not all communications apply (e.g. U.S. updates coming through to Australia), this is expect to be resolved.

The managers are fairly accessible - if the door's open, you're welcome to talk to them. We have 1-on-1 meetings to discuss performance feedback and my managers occasionally swing past everyone's desks to make sure we're going ok. In my previous team, we had official awards each month where people were recognised for their hard work and achievements.

We have some great, friendly mentors at Leidos that will make you feel as much a friend as a worker. They are also very knowledgeable and often experts.

Managers are all very approachable, knowledgeable, and candid.

Communication can be lacking from managers about feedback, praise or performance if the manager is not associated with your current project.
