I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Excellent pay for good performance and many benefits including insurance, retirement savings matching, etc.
A challenging job environment and employee improvement structure designed to stretch your abilities.

Cons

Very regimented way of writing code for defense customers who are very picky about minor things. There are many problems with having a cash-strapped single customer for a product. Not the most enjoyable workplace environment (just a cube farm) with laptops given only to management positions (so they can work from their near-constant meetings).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Working with government customers to upgrade the work environment to one where workers have the option of working from their desk cube or a no-seat-assigned collaborative space would greatly increase both creativity and productivity.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    -They have a set # of interns to hire, good chances.
    -Lots of industry exposure
    - Large responsibilities given

    Cons

    - Mandatory hiring means you get hired in and they have to FIND stuff for you to do, it's not really planned.
    -Thrown responsibilities with (sometimes) not a lot of mentoring\guidance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan out Internship experiences ... Don't hire people and 'wing it'
