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

Pros

9/80 - Every other Friday is an off day
Great people to work around
Take care of their employees as best they can within a large company
Informative management (upper/executive)
This company is a great company with a nice benefits package - 3 weeks vacation from the first year, 1 week plant shutdown over Christmas/New Year and every other Friday off, nice 401K match, healthplan, tuition reimbursement, and upward mobility for those motivated and driven to seek it.

Cons

I would be hard pressed to come up with a legitimate con. Yes, Lockheed and most other companies have their share of challenges, but most are minor in nature. You will likely hear about, as a defense contractor, it is viewed as a volatile employment option, but I believe if you work hard and you happen to be in some department that is being eliminated/reduced b/c of contractual issues, you will likely find an open position somewhere else in the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you are doing and getting better at it. Continue to look out for your employees while simultaneously taking care of the customer(s).

    Great product, mission, and values, a lot of red tape and politics.

    Pros

    Scope and type of work

    Cons

    Lower pay compared to other industries
    Instability with uncertainty due to contracts and sales being tied to government budgets
    Slow supply chain
