    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    They offed great benefits. They reimburse masters tuition to approximately $7000/term. It is very easy to move around in the company if a position does not suit you. The salary is very competitive and they are the number one defense contractor in the world! The work is extremely enjoyable!

    Cons

    The long hours are very hard on you. Also, the shift work can be a drag at times. But it is all worth it because you are taken care of by the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider all those below you as part of the team and not less than you! We work just as hard to accomplish the same goals.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    It's hard to get fired unless you violate security procedures or there is a reduction in workforce.

    Cons

    Much bureacracy and red tape, innovation is stifled. Major salary compression, lousy annual raises. Too many processes, things that make total business sense aren't done and fighting for change is rarely successful. Many bad middle managers. Pervasive culture of not valuing their employees, this manifests itself in many ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Major change is needed and not happening quickly enough. Middle managers are lousy and don't execute visions of executive management. Need to start considering employees as the number one asset- valuing and respecting them. The best people are walking out the door.
