The Job there was productive and rewarding

Former Employee - Material Controller in Marietta, GA
Former Employee - Material Controller in Marietta, GA

I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Allowed me to grow and utilized my skills independently in a leadership position. There was room for growth and advancement.. Offered great benefit packages.

Cons

People are not held accountable for not performing their assigned duties. Enforcement should be on tardiness and not showing up for work.

Advice to Management

To hold employees accountable for their actions.

    Pros

    Great projects, great people, good company culture

    Cons

    Military budget is at the mercy of Congress. If they cut the budget, the military budget goes down, which means program budget goes down, which means workforce reductions are constantly looming around the corner in today's economic instability.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget to recognize your employees with raises/promotions. Employee retention has already been identified as a problem. Don't do too little too late to retain your stars!

    Pros

    Grad school tuition reimbursement

    Interesting work w/ DoD Agencies
    Work / Personal Life balance
    Good management
    Flexibly to find new opportunities in the company

    Cons

    Like any big company, you have the politics. They base engineers on "levels" which hardly reflect the true ability and skills. Just because someone has worked in industry for 15 years, does not mean they are a better engineer than someone with 2 years experience. A level 1 could very well be doing the exact job as a level 3 or 4 engineer, but be paid considerably less because of the years of experience and the level they get put at because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Financially reward your young engineers! If you have a level 1 or 2 that is performing at a level 3 or higher, then promote them to that level immediately. Don't play off this " not enough years of experience" to justify not paying them exactly what they are worth.
