Giant Bureaucracy where things move slowly and projects are not efficient

Systems Integration/Test Engineer (Former Employee) Houston, TX

ProsThis review is for Lockheed Space Systems Company - I worked there for 3 years out of college

A variety of benefits
*Strong benefit package
*Pay is comparable with the aerospace industry
*Great time off - 9/80 schedule
*Has some of the best contracts in the industry

ConsThe huge downside is the bureaucracy. They sent me and all of the other 40 or so new hires to Houston, TX...when the entire management team was in Denver. As a college hire, my manager, lead, and the rest of the team (except for a few other new hires) were all in Denver. Needless to say, this meant that my development and my opportunities were hindered.

The bureaucracy that allowed such a set-up to occur showed itself in other ways. Work was done slowly and projects were consistently behind schedule. It seemed that for every person doing real work, there were about 3 people just sitting around. This made it hard to get real work that develops skills and it made promotions and development opportunities hard to come by. I definitely don't recommend Lockheed.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your teams small so that they can stay lean and efficient.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The company has one of the worst performance rating system in the country.

    Software Engineer Staff (Current Employee) Grand Prairie, TX

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin


    Pros: The money, Lockheed Martin does pay their employees above average. Cons: Engineers are penalized for not being involved in non-productive or non-work… Advice to Senior Management: There is no problem with an engineer shortage in the near or far future. The problem is that management chooses to retire… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
