    Lockheed does a Disservice to Employees and Provides Little Career Growth

    Systems Integration & Test Engineer (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGood benefits
    Work Life Balance - the pace is slow but this allows you to not be overworked. 9/80 schedules are nice
    Good location across from NASA

    ConsPut new employees fresh out of college in Houston while direct managers were based in Denver. Little contact between new members and rest of team. Led to great inefficiencies.

    Slow pace
