    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Very diverse environment and great place to learn. There is a great work-life balance and flexible hours.

    Cons

    No upward mobility. There is a lot of process and documentation that you must go through to get the smallest things changed, although the processes that needs changing, is to better process improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like for management to have some type of idea of what tasks and daily processes the "worker bees" complete. We are judged by performance against our peers but if management doesn't have an idea what you do (besides what you tell them) how can they fend for you to get a raise when they are just reading your words.
