    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Consistent paycheck, tuition reimbursement,

    Cons

    Gov. contracting is a male dominated industry.... hard/impossible to move up the corporate ladder if youre female.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay attention to your workers, quit catering only to upper management.

  2.  

    There are a lot of interesting projects to work on but you have to be lucky enough to find an opening.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer II in Gaithersburg, MD

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    These were some of the smartest colleagues I've ever worked with and I learned a lot from all of them.

    Cons

    There are always a lot of people stressed out that they are going to be the next ones to be laid off. A lot of the benefits have been taken away in recent years to save money. If you want to be moved into a leadership position you have to be willing to work a lot of extra hours on extra projects outside of the main project and you do not get paid overtime for those assignments.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company provides wonderful benefits; flexible hours, insurance, etc. The work environment is currently positive, and the jobs are very stable. The culture is military-ish, and deadlines are set to be attainable.

    Cons

    After completing multiple trainings and a Master’s degree, this company was un willing to provide more work or more opportunities, had to relocate to achieve that. This company has too many levels of management, which causes a lot of finger pointing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership development programs don’t develop leaders; they produce individuals with a sense of entitlement. These individuals are promised the world for 2 years, and once out of the program expect to be given the world, without putting out any effort.
