    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance benefits such as telecommuting A great place for middle aged employees that are just looking to cruise through the remainder of the careers and cash in on their pension

    Cons

    Extremely limited career advancement opportunities Pay scale is on the low end of the industry Limited opportunities for advancement and little reason for those without a pension to stay

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time/effort on broadcasting executive level musical chair job rotations and more time on capturing and retaining young talent.

    Pros

    Some parts of Lockheed treat their employees very well, very good Ethics department, overall benefits very good

    Cons

    Lockheed is a very fractured company and i am sure people reading about Lockheed are confused when they read reviews at web sites like this one. Lockheed divisions have different work weeks, pay bands in other works the Salary grades are standardized but the actual high and lows for the same cities can vary 15%. Work week varies, holiday schedule, amount of money you contribute to the health plan as well as the actual plan. Pay for performance merely means you will probably get more than the guy that performs less however they do force managers to put all their employees into groups poor good better best so someone has to be in the poor group pretty much no matter what. Managers are overworked some have 30+ employees to manage in addition to an actual job, plus now managers have to manage employees user accounts and new hires. The current process for reviews LMCommit is roundly hated by everyone but especially managers for them to do their job right for every employee would take weeks of unpaid work.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize the holiday schedule and pay bands if you are cutting holidays to make the compnay more competitive then make us the most competitive. Middle managers seem to do nothing that brings value to the company , take some workload off managers let HR manage the setting up of new hire accounts. Let secretaries/admins book travel the travel site is not user friendly and a lot of time is lost on people making $40.00+/hr trying to figure out what flight to take or where to stay. Work should be done by the lowest paid employee capable of doing it. Job postings should be marked as internal or company wide, if a posting is there because someone is going to be promoted then mark it departmental internal and call it good. Get rid of Eureka it just sucks, and if you are going to keep it and I comment on your page a reply would be nice!
