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

    Pros

    Grad school tuition reimbursement
    Decent Salary/Benefits
    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
