Managers, not leaders, at LM. Train yourself at LM.

I have been working at Lockheed Martin

Pros

Very large company offers numerous projects to apply to work on. Health benefits, this year, better than small companies I have worked with in the past. Next year, Lockheed's OneHealth plan will drastically change that if it becomes the only option. Corporate management is very serious about diversity and respecting others.

Cons

Very hard to be promoted if not following a management track. Lip-service ONLY for technical skills and non-management progression. Like so many other places, technical training and certification receives so little funding as to be meaningless (here is $2,000, go train 10 people). Lower and middle management thinks everyone wants to be a manager like them: more political manager than leader.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fix the hiring process. Good lord, why can't HR match resumes to open positions? HR only provides a good match by accident: the best employees are found by existing employees, even though HR has the resumes! If HR doesn't match a resume to a position, but the person is found and hired by employee referral, give the LM employee the referral bonus (out of the HR budget). Stop saying there is a non-management career path when promotions require performing management activiites!

    Pros

    Lots of locations to work. Interesting work. Excellent promotion opportunities for minorities/women.

    Cons

    Old-timers are taken for granted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people based on ability -- not race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. (Don't deny this happens)

    I worked at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Great Company. Very stable, many advancement opportunites. The people are respectful. You can create your own work schedule and there's a great balance between work and family life. I worked there as an intern and the intern program was building, but headed in the right direction. The access to people and information at the company is great. Doesn't take much to get the answer you need.

    Cons

    The pay is lower than some other companies in it's bracket.. I think there could be a formal entry-level training program for those who are coming straight out college into the work force. Access to certain websites on the internet are limited such as personal e-mail cannot be accessed from the company''s network.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a training program.
