Pros – Receiving your check on time
Cons – Blatant unequal & unethical treatment of employees working in the same department by mangagement.
Advice to Senior Management – Implement a value added process whereby employees can fairly rate managers and hold them accountable to conducting ethical business and management principles. I should mention names, but remain hopeful this company will improve their management style.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – This review is for Lockheed Space Systems Company - I worked there for 3 years out of college
A variety of benefits
*Strong benefit package
*Pay is comparable with the aerospace industry
*Great time off - 9/80 schedule
*Has some of the best contracts in the industry
Cons – The huge downside is the bureaucracy. They sent me and all of the other 40 or so new hires to Houston, TX...when the entire management team was in Denver. As a college hire, my manager, lead, and the rest of the team (except for a few other new hires) were all in Denver. Needless to say, this meant that my development and my opportunities were hindered.
The bureaucracy that allowed such a set-up to occur showed itself in other ways. Work was done slowly and projects were consistently behind schedule. It seemed that for every person doing real work, there were about 3 people just sitting around. This made it hard to get real work that develops skills and it made promotions and development opportunities hard to come by. I definitely don't recommend Lockheed.
Advice to Senior Management – Keep your teams small so that they can stay lean and efficient.
