Pros

Security Clearance
Great pay out of undergrad (because of shift differential)
Lots of other young/recent grads
Smart people
Advancement opportunities (if you like satellite operations)
NEVER bring work home with you - you'll go to jail if you do!
8 hours per day... and that's it!!
Great hours/benefits

Cons

Shift Schedule - The rotating shift schedule was tough. It's hard for some to stay healthy becuase of the hours, eating habits, etc. And bye bye to half your weekends!

The company is HUGE and obviously pretty silo-ed. If you want to go somewhere else after your 18th month stint it's not like your boss can call his buddy over in a different business unit to help you out.

I thought the work was incredibly boring. Many of my peers LOVED it and wanted to stay in highly technical satellite operations for the rest of the career, never seeing the light of day, traveling, etc. I think I'm almost too much of a mover/shaker for a job like this.

    Pros

    great people to work with within the engineering levels of 1 through 5. You get 20% off on your Verizon plans.

    Cons

    Honestly, there is too much to list. I could write a book. But in short, the biggest problem with Lockheed is that it simply is just too large of a company and I feel like a commodity as opposed to a person. HR has way too much power at Lockheed. HR is not looking out for the employees like they should be. They are looking out for the company first.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing I say will change anything so giving advice to management seems pointless. Nobody seems to give a darn who you are unless you are a Director or a VP which they have too many of anyway.
