Great company to work for, but at the mercy of Congress's ability to pass a budget...

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

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!

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, good ethics and policies, and competitive company. Overall supportive management and good talented employees. Nice perk of discounts for employees with many different companies, health club membership, etc.

    Cons

    Found it harder in the economic downturn to get additional training funds that I desired to help me grow professionally and advance to other positions in the company. As with many bigger companies, the HR functions, IT and your reporting management may not be local and may be more difficult or time consuming to get appropriate answers and assistance when needed.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the training initiatives a bit more and promote more internal positions and tranfers between divisions. Provide more assistance to previous employees to come back on board or to retain them when government contracts expire or layoffs occur; promote targeting previous employees who lost their positions for these reasons though targeted recruiting when new positions meeting their skills are announced (the company should look more to contact these previous employees for new positions).


  2. Good place to work, top heavy management structure.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Big company which means a fair amount of stability. good benefits package but some of that seems to be eroded each year. Interesting work. Old workforce with tons of tribal knowledge.

    Cons

    Not much potential for upward growth without at least a bachelors degree. An old workforce that is set in their ways and not very open to now ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Start giving importunity's to some of the younger workforce.
