Pros

Lateral movement within the company is no only easy, but encouraged. However one has to take the initiative in this. Deep IT infrastructure for every facet of employment from Benefits Enrollment to retirement savings management. Full or partial tuition reimbursement

Cons

Is very by the book in terms of vertical movement. Hard and fast rules about minimum years of experience for each level of employment. As a large, very large company, roles and responsibilities can be very compartmentalized with a narrow focus. Changing one's scenery often means changing to another job on another team.

Advice to Management

Reach out even more to younger employees

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Flexibility, advancement opportunities and wide variety of assignment possibilities.

    Cons

    Program management lack customer and corporate vision and at times appears clueless or uninterested in customer needs or wants, much less the needs and wants of Lockheed Martin employees. This does not, however, include immediate managers who seem to have a better understanding of both customers and direct reports.
