    I worked at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Compensation is great and the work was always exciting. The engineers are dedicated and coworkers exemplify teamwork

    Cons

    Horizontal movement to other industries is more difficult. Work life balance has gone by the wayside recently

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are comprehensive. Pay is competitive. The staff members are extremely professional and focused. Stretch assignments are offered by which employees can expand their skills and competencies.

    Cons

    Heavily tied to the US defense industry so projects can be affected by congressional budget issues such as sequestration or program changes from the political level. A fact of life for any in the defense/aerospace industry.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lockheed starts you with a great salary and benefits. You have a flexible schedule and they may also include telecommuting.

    Cons

    Parts of Lockheed Martin is contract based, which means if they lose the contract, you may also lose your job. But, unlike most employers, Lockheed gives you months of advance notice and they also go the extra mile to try to find new positions within the company for those that will be losing their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I want to thank the LM Management staff for putting in so much effort trying to place all those workers that are transitioning off of the contract.

    Former Employee - Senior Staff Project Engineer in Eagan, MN

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

    Pros

    Internal and external education support and plenty of internal advancement opportunities presented to those who care to pursue their career.
    9/80 work hours with every other Friday off was a great perk.

    Cons

    Massive size of company can be daunting for those who aren't proactive. Existing policies can deter some new ideas.
    Company success tied to government political relationships which vary regionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to pursue and share long range strategic vision internally to keep the spirit alive.

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

    Pros

    Great company to work for, they give you meaningful projects and don't make you feel like an intern. Very organized intern program, given a supervisor and "buddy" on the first day to help ease the transition. Everyone is very helpful and treat interns well.

    Cons

    Low starting salary unless you get into leadership development programs.

    Continue to have high expectations but remember folks need some work life balance.
