Current Employee - Staff Software Engineer

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

Pros

It's a very big corporation with lots of people, so if you're really smart and work hard, you will climb the corporate ladder fairly quickly.

Cons

Limited opportunities if you do not have security clearance. Lots of business depends on government, so it's not always the place where the most current/trendy stuff gets made.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The performance evaluation process is a joke.

    Pros

    Stable company even though continued budget cuts. If contracts are cut and work is slow, they will try to place you in a temporary position or relocate you to another division as opposed to firing you. There are many challenging opportunities and opportunities to travel both domestic and internationally (depending on which program you work for). The people take great pride in their work.

    Cons

    At Aeronautics in Marietta, if you are not production, it is hard to advance. You basically have to move a mountain or get connected with the right person.

    Hard to move around in the same location. If you want to switch positions, you basically have to move to a different business unit.

    Pay is ok but raises are not as good as other organizations.

    Management tends to loose focus as they climb the ladder.

    Large generation gap. Too many people are only talking about retirement instead of innovative ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in consistantly hiring young, talented individuals to replace all of the "baby boomers" that are about to leave very soon. We do not need to continue to have this gap in knowledge in the future.
