Pros

LM is a very stable company with a lot of interesting technologies. The company generally has strong ethical culture and is committed to performing for the customer

Cons

At a company this large it can be easy to get lost in the shuffle. The company itself is aging rapidly which will be a challenge in the next few years. The uncertainty of defense and other government contracts will be a interesting time for the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This company needs to focus on keeping and developing young engineers

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Former Employee - Staff Software Engineer in Marietta, GA
    Former Employee - Staff Software Engineer in Marietta, GA

    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 ManagementAdvice

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