    Former Employee - Various From IC to Director in Palo Alto, CA
    Former Employee - Various From IC to Director in Palo Alto, CA

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Unmatched opportunities to propose and execute highly innovative, highly complex space flight hardware development projects, both research investigation projects for NASA and technology demonstration projects for other government agencies.

    Cons

    Initial "one size fits all" approach to business and engineering process implementation was a mistake that has yet to be undone. Senior management was reluctant to accept higher potential risk for significant cost and efficiency benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow and enable the proven teams at the ATC to experiment with lower cost and more agile processes on the smaller NASA research and other technology demonstration projects. Find a way to better shield these groups with demonstrated successful experience from the processes necessary to the larger company.

    Former Intern - Intern in Ocala, FL
    Former Intern - Intern in Ocala, FL

    I worked at Lockheed Martin as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    I learned quite a bit from working with the engineers. I learned far more from Level 1 and 2 engineers than I ever did from my supervisors or managers.

    Cons

    They program for interns in Ocala was underdeveloped and I spent months doing nothing but menial tasks before I was finally given some actual engineering tasks. I also got paid less than other interns because I was farther from a graduation date even though I had more experience than many of them.
