I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Strong IT training, strong career focus, good yearly review in place finaly. Great team I work with. Good 401K + Capital program with strong website to manage it all and help you see retirement goal vs actual. Strong comunication from top mgt on down, we all know what our goal is. 10 float holidays + 3 weeks vacation + with a 9/80 work schedule we are off every other Friday. The company here in fort worth is closed xmas week ( you do use 2-3 float holiday days for that) but its great no matter.

Cons

Office furniture stuck in the 1960s, no sinks in the break area.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend the $$s to renovate the office areas.

    Pros

    Lockheed Martin has talented and quality engineers. You get to work on exciting and innovative projects. There is a wide range of work across many work locations.

    Cons

    Technology seems to always be ten years behind the times. Too much of the leadership refuses to make risky decisions, and the primary customer is unwilling and incapable of accepting change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your greatest asset, the minds of your employees. Don't making keeping up with your profession something that you have to do on your own time.

    Pros

    Industry leader in defense. Top quality products to support the warfighter.

    Cons

    For upward growth, you have to be willing to relocate. As a former manger, I was forced by senior management to rate my employees into a bell curve with 90% as Satisfactory employees even though they deserved better ratings.
    Benefits are not as good, or cheap as you'd expect from a large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of forced distribution of annual performance. It demotivated people.
