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

Pros

Culture varies greatly across sites, and even between projects. Good work life balance in most cases, relatively decent compensation, and the chance to work on some really interesting technology.

Cons

You're either working on something cutting edge or maintaining something 30 years old, and there's a culture clash there. Some projects can turn into death marches due to inexperienced project management. Career advancement is not very meritocratic, consisting of either mandatory promotions after a few years, or politics.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More unification of LM culture needs to take place.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of resources and knowledgable people
    Education Assistance
    Competitive Salary/Benefits
    Excellent Work/Life Balance
    Decent Management

    Cons

    Typical big company; very political. The opportunity to move around in the company is there, but unless you don't network or "know someone" those opportunities are almost non-existant, regardless how good of an employee you are. The level in which your job is based on could more than likely be inaccurate, as it is based off of years of professional and relevant experience. That said, most military experience will not carry over, for some reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees and help them to advance their career. Whether that be financially or in a new job role altogether.

    Pros

    Lots of different opportunities to move around and get exposure to different products and design life cycles.

    Cons

    Such a large company with a lot of high-value projects, so there are a lot of processes to follow.
