Pros

Great work experience, challenging assignments with major organizational impact, smart coworkers, all right pay and benefits. The 9-80 schedule is maybe the best perk of all, every other Friday off, and given the workload if it was the other way (8 hours a day 5 days a week) I would still be working 9 hours a day, the off Friday is amazing!

Cons

Difficult to advance without moving locations or spending years in same role, pay is locked into a scale, surge periods with a lot of overtime. Sequestration.

Advice to Management

Award high performers with early promotions!

    Pros

    Salary itself is good, although factoring in the 401K company matching (up to 4%) + company retirement contributions (3%), and divide that by the average number of hours per work week (usually 45 or less), then consider in the job security, I would say the overall value is quite high. Part time telecommuting is a great perk that allows alot of flexibility and life balance.

    Cons

    As a company, I'd agree with the consensus that growth/promotions are slow (if you can wait around ten years, things should be quite different), value of health benefits are decreasing over time, excessive number of management positions with seemingly vague and overlapping repsonsibilities, wide disparity in terms of workloads/accountabilty/rewards between departments (or even between people in the same cubical) and too many talented newcomers are would-be movers and shakers that get frustrated and leave because of the status quo (unfortunately, leaving the B team in the leadership pipeline to run the company).

    Advice to Management

    It would benefit morale and productivity if the company to become more meritocratic.

    Pros

    Ethics - great focus on ethics, there may be a few bad apples but overall the company places a focus on ethics.
    Great place to work with lots of opportunities to move to many different areas of the company
    Leadership Programs are extremely strong and graduating from a Lockheed Martin leadership program is a major accomplishment and honor.
    Exciting programs
    Lockheed Martin employees take pride in work and never forget who they are working for

    Cons

    the company as a whole is very site centric and senior leaders like to see someone face to face all the time. Sharing work across sites could be improved without moving employees
