GT pays bonuses at all levels.

Last year in public sector, it was at least 10%.

Oh hey fellow Boozer also looking at Leidos. Seems like there aren’t many folks from Leidos here and info on compensation is scare elsewhere.

funny

It’s not just Leidos. Most federal contractors have different cost pools depending on the type of work. This impacts some benefits such as professional development. They sometimes will lay off entire staff to relocate the place of performance to cities with cheaper labor cost. Cheaper cost pools makes them more competitive. Partly to blame here are government agencies going for the lowest acceptable bid even when they said they won't.

No sure you can classify SAIC and Leidos as consulting businesses. They’re in the same league as CACI and GDIT. Based on my experience, only senior Managers and above are eligible for incentive plans, which pay a percentage of your salary. They are not that great. Otherwise it’s performance bonuses.
