I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Fantastic and intelligent people Workforce development if you're in the right pipeline Cutting edge tech

Cons

If not in the right development pipeline, you can be those"lifers" Health benefits have gone from average to poor. One health plan available and you end playing quite a bit for it for so-so to poor coverage. Salary is the bottom as far as defense contractors go. From a friend, "You won't get rich working here but you won't be poor either" Promotions are hard to come by.

Advice to Management

Take a look compensation packages. They seem to get worse every year.

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

    Pros

    Lots of interesting, diverse, challenging projects in many domains...possible to get different experiences without leaving employer as might be the case with smaller companies; many intelligent co-workers - many having advanced degrees. 9/80 work schedules for many a real plus (alternate Fridays off)

    Cons

    Stifling bureaucracy (not unexpected due to 1) size of company itself and 2) primary customer being the Federal government; somewhat older workforce not necessarily up-to-speed with current software methodologies (for example, resistance to Agile vs embracing Waterfall software development). Challenging budget constraints likely with cutbacks in defense spending.

    Advice to Management

    Quit staffing projects based on headcount and maybe read things like Brooks' "The Mythical Man-Month"

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

    Pros

    The managers at my site care for their employees

    Cons

    One has to make connections, otherwise it might look like a non-caring company due to its size.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time getting feed back from employees
