I worked at Lockheed Martin as an intern

Pros

* Stable culture, clear expectations of a 9 to 5
* Clear expectations of your role
* Resources are provided to help you expand your education, but only relevant to your job

Cons

* Hard to take a role in other positions (10%)
* Taking initiative not rewarded as much as it is encouraged
* Many projects are slow moving, no aggressive and quick work done

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage folks to try to new roles and be aggressive with their work

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, 9/80 work schedule. Offered pension (N/A now). Coworkers were mostly smart and nice. Interesting projects from big picture perspective. Bicycles for use on campus. 401k and charitable donation matching. Good retention bonus offered for staying on until the end of a project. Occasional BBQ parties, and holiday banquet. Leadership training program and tuition reimbursement. Maybe a good deal when you have a family and work is just a paycheck.

    Cons

    Coming out of college, there weren't many coworkers my age, and most who were talked about leaving. Work never really felt fun. The pace felt slow, with a lot of processes. Projects take years to complete. Few fun perks. Possibly below-average salary. Drab old office buildings.

    Former Employee - Systems Engineer II in Sunnyvale, CA

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, no suits and people are nice and interested in there work

    true 40 hour work week, no insane over time

    9/80 work schedule gives you a three day weekend every other weekend

    very flexible with working hours and vacation, "flex time" allows you to build up additional time off

    Good salary, not the best for the Bay Area but considering the relaxed work environment they offer good compensation.

    Internal transfers offer access to a wide variety of industries and skill building opportunities.

    Cons

    While the LM name recognition can help when looking for work this is not a great place for young people to start a career. The company is over managed and seems more interested in chasing the latest ISO / Jack Welch certification than looking at its own history or asking its own employees about what works. There is too much hierarchy and over specialization, that said it's a big company and you can transfer internally to gain a variety of experience. Heading up the management ladder internally though probably won't work, one of my best qualified friend who worked there at the same time as mean and was doing his best was basically told to stop working so hard b/c he was making people look bad.
