    I worked at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    I loved the opportunities they have given to me. They are receptive to new opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    There is a lot of red tape and hard to move up as with many large corp

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The yearly survey is not going to tell the whole story of employee happiness. Retention of ISLDP especially is now, likely because they are being held back even when they are qualified due to all of the HR red tape and they jump ship for a company that wants all of their talent. I have seen this so many times.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I love the 9x80 work week, I also have the ability to come in whenever Id like which is really nice. I have a lot of opportunities to travel, which is possible because of Lockheed's large budget and extensive list of business partners. The company really tries to take care of its customers with good health benefits/incentives, discount programs, credit unions, the list goes on. LM is very active in the surrounding communities with volunteering and reaching out to youth.

    Cons

    The yearly LM commit performance reviews are somewhat annoying but it seems like most large companies are doing something similar. With my job, I sometimes have to be on call for emergencies or at times am scheduled to work critical events in the middle of the night.

    Pros

    Good benefits and salaries, flexible schedules, interesting assignments. Proud to have been part of the team in this defense company.

    Cons

    Sometimes susceptible to layoffs due to contracts ending. Work schedules sometimes very demanding. Should always stay current on latest technology and be willing to change jobs to pursue those skills to prevent running into a dead end career path when you can no longer afford to make the change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Initiate job sharing programs for older workers to retain knowledge and experience that can be passed on to next generation.
