Satellite Systems Engineer.. 18 month sting and OUT....

Satellite Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Springfield, VA

I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than a year

ProsSecurity 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

ConsShift 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
