Slicing is a gathering skill, not a mission skill. The missions are there to help grind it out and maybe get lucky on a few rolls, just like can be done with bio or scav missions.
The slicing nodes respawn slower than other gathering skills, you can't gather corpses like others, and if you're in a group you're fighting over the lockboxes. And once again, those other gathering skills can run missions which do not return a loss. You still gain a tangible asset.
