    Pros

    Well established as a major Government Defense Contractor.

    Cons

    Executives paying themselves outrageous salaries with minimal salaries for working class employees causing mass layoffs nationwide.

    Advice to Management

    Greed at the top will continue to gut the company of high quality professionals.

    Pros

    Work-Life Balance aka Flex-Time work week

    Cons

    Pretty much everything else !

    Advice to Management

    Get clued into the work force, especially the longer term employees not just the new hires and those with less than 10 years of service.

    Pros

    Good pay depending on where you work, the benefits are good. The company has a lot of projects to offer, and they make it fairly easy to transfer to a different facility if you choose to. They give you plenty of options for career and academic improvement.

    Cons

    Lockheed Martin does not know how to keep their 0-5 year employees. I was there for 3 years, and my managers were hanging a promotion over my head for the last 2 of them, but i never actually saw it happen before I left. Management can be good in some cases, but horrible in other cases and don't always take the time to fully understand or appreciate certain situations.

    Pros

    Well paid, interesting work. Easier to move around as an internal candidate.

    Cons

    Your position is only as stable as the contract you are on. Your experience will be only as good as the team you are on. I had some great managers and some not so great managers. Corporate locations have some backstabbing, gossip and play favorites. Off-site, satellite locations are a little more laid back. Benefits are horrible, they have one of the most expensive healthcare plans of any company I have worked for and intimidate you to pay back sick leave by working unpaid overtime.

    Pros

    Great benefits and decent pay. Most co-workers are friendly and helpful. Flex hours and 9-80 work weeks can be elected.

    Cons

    High stress work place and bad morale. Management is more interested in their egos and themselves then their employees that support them. Peter principle is the chosen advancement methodology.
