    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lockheed Martin has great values and provides products that protect the war fighters and America. I think the compensation and benefits are very good compared to the rest of corporate America. You work on very advanced technology which is rare.

    Cons

    There is a lot of opportunity for advancement especially with the baby boomer generation getting close to retirement which Lockheed has a lot of. Unfortuntely you need to be in Engineering or Finance to really have any possibility of real career advancement. There aren't a lot of opportunities for the rest of us despite our strong leadership abilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just look at someones education or current position when it comes to leadership positions. If someone has strong character, values, and work ethic they will probably be a better manager than say someone who has an engineering background but doesn't know how to work with people.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you work in their their general or health services - aside from occasional interesting clients - none.

    Cons

    Poor program management and leadership. In spite of lip service and "performance process" they do not encourage innovation or new approaches to management or problems. I worked for a smaller company that was purchased by Lockheed. The benefits were reduced, program management was changed and our jobs were no longer fulfilling or rewarding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to defense contracting and forget IT and Health services unless you are ready to replace all your leadership and rethink your business model.
