    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    Receiving your check on time

    Cons

    Blatant unequal & unethical treatment of employees working in the same department by mangagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep your teams small so that they can stay lean and efficient.
