    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Manassas, VA

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    The opportunities for instructor led training classes and online training is readily available but management has recently decided to significantly cut the training budget.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity for advancement and limited growth potential. The benefits are not good. Compensation is subpar and is below industry standards. Please negotiate a high salary going in b/c you will be locked into that starting salary with very little to no increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more appreciation to your employees by recognizing their value add to the company and to the customer through promotion and higher compensation.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Eagan, MN
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Eagan, MN

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    In spite of a very negative working environment in the Eagan, MN location, there were some positive aspects:

    * Diverse assignment options in some positions
    * Great career experience opportunities if planning to move to another company
    * Adequate compensation package
    * Excellent relocation opportunities if desired
    * 9/80 work week (alternating Fridays off; 9hr work day, 8hr on working Friday)

    Cons

    The announcement of the facility closure in March 2013 left a pretty sour taste in the employees' mouths, but it might have actually been an improvement over the attitude of employees leading up to the closure announcement since people naturally seemed less concerned with performance. The facility closure was very poorly managed a did not do enough to help employees to find a new role within or outside of the company. The stay-on package was not equitable. Both the pre-announcement and the post-announcement periods had a number of issues:

    * Very competitive and untrusting work environment
    * Little recognition of extra effort
    * Exclusive, cliquish culture
    * Generally non-competitive compensation structure
    * Advancement to leadership positions clearly linked to age rather than abilities / accomplishments
    * Merit-based pay increase and performance review process is laughable
    * Extreme office politics, among and especially within business areas
    * Very poor senior management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward performance. Promote from within and based upon performance and loyalty, rather than personal relationships. Create a more friendly and trusting work environment. Recognize the need for work-life balance. Place a higher value on innovation and novelty in technology and process management. Do not discriminate based upon age. Get in touch with the needs and expectations of the 'new' workforce that will replace the soon-to-retire employee base. Scrap the LDP program; it is expensive, promotes attrition (among participants and non-participants) and ultimately yields little benefit vs the financial commitment of the company. Abandon the so-called "one MS2" concept. There is too much history and animosity among the site employees, especially the "old timers".
