I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 3 years)
GREAT INSURANCE. They hire really great people, for social and professional benefits/agendas, that are passionate about their craft.
Not having CERTIFIED CREATIVES in UPPER MANAGEMENT that understand/respect the creative process, production time-frame, and profession. In addition, its difficult to climb the career mountain; not impossible but hard, because of the company's desire for you to have a secret security clearance to go pass GO and collect $200 even though you dont need that level of clearance to begin the game of Monopoly. A Graphic Artist can literally start at level 1 and has the hope of reaching Level 5 (when Hercules becomes a God); however after level 2 you need the secret clearance to advance.... Oops even though there is NO WAY for you to acquire this in level 1 & 2 we don't want to give it to you to advance. I literally had a level 3 position desiring to hire me but they wanted me to have the GOLDEN TICKET (clearance) that they weren't willing to pay for in order for me to start working. The intellegent resolution, for this issue, would be that if someone has had amazing managerial evaluations and has advanced from level 1 to 2 with awesome attendance, evaluations, and a FREAKING treasure chest of recognition awards from the local branch and HEADQUARTERS on their achievements and success WITH THE LM CUSTOMER.... they might be worthy of that clearance... They MIGHT be a good investment. But I'm just the guy that designs, develops, and makes the customer want to work with you.... What do I know?
Advice to Management
This is an analogy... Warning some creative thought will be used within this message. If you're a scientist and you develop a cure (HEADQUATERS) with a SPECIFIC formula. Wouldn't it be amazing, if you wrote down that cure so you could remember how you made it, to have the ability to teach others how to make the cure? I had a upper-management person tell me that basically headquarters had "the cure" because they have to be "strong, healthy, and look amazing" for all to see. And we had an off brand version of "the cure" because its not essential to have the same ingredients because we dont need to be as healthy as headquarters. To conclude and summarize, if you are a creative and you don't work for headquarters (PARENT) and you work for a branch (CHILD of BLOOD RELATION). You aren't seen to be working for an important enough establishment to have CREATIVES as part of the LEADERSHIP TEAM even though creatives are needed, desired, and had applied to a job post that requires a DEGREE from an accredited UNIVERSITY and must have YEARS OF PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE. Upper-Management told me Lockheed Martin is an engineering/information technology company... Which is why anyone that has certification in those fields and human resources/accounting has a "congressional delegate" in upper-management where as creativity is subjective. If this is true... Take away the CREATIVE CERTIFIED PROFESSIONS from the formula of "THE CURE" and let's see if the company goes to HOSPICE. Creatives aren't children that are trying to act like mommy and daddy (headquarters) for fun and practice. WE ARE THE HEARTBEAT that lets everyone know you exisit and are doing well.
