    Pros

    It was relatively easy to land a job here after college. The work is interesting and the company really works to give you the opportunity to advance. They also promote the matrix business model and they encourage moving between programs, even though the functional managers don't feel the same way.

    Cons

    The pay could be higher, but considering that I was able to get this job rather easily, I can't complain.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people so the workload can be spread out. I have yet to take vacation since we have so much we're working on.

    Pros

    Lockheed is a determined company that is really fun to work with. I wished that I could go back to them

    Cons

    Is making sure that you have everything double checked, they don't want you to be wrong and slip up. Even if you are confident

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Great company benefits, people, locations, work life balance, vacation, career opportunities and compensation, culture and values and reasonable company to work for if you do not have high expectations.

    Cons

    Low increases in pay and promotions. You may not realize all of the discussions about having a work / life balance. Working proposals on the weekend and on holiday can be a bummer. Do not expect anything for it.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your people. They are not dumb, deaf and blind. The employees will discuss amongst themselves whatever your tell them and find the truth.

    Pros

    Great company with opportunities to grow. Excellent benefits. I spent 7 years with the company on several projects and was always lucky to work with exceptional managers who looked out for their employees. Assisted where necessary but gave the room to lead.

    Cons

    No downsides with the company but maybe the clients who at times were extremely demanding but really not much different from my current situation.

    Advice to Management

    The client does not always know what they want so even though they might issue requests they often need to be better advised.


  9. A great company fully invested in their employees.

    Pros

    Upper management always interested in employee feedback, new ideas and works to implement the best of those into operations. Everything extra you give is valued.

    Cons

    There are no downsides to working at Lockheed Martin, except that the workload never lets up, which indicates the interest in our programs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the great job that makes Lockheed Martin stand out as an exemplary company with a growing Energy Services division.
