Pros

Good work and life balance. Multiple locations in DC metro area. Flexible working hours, including telecommuting. Pension, though no longer available to new hires.

Cons

No paid overtime in most cases. Less emphasis on internal software development. Limited budgets for career development, training courses. Career growth in technical domain limited, very few level 5 and above positions. Benefit costs are high. Salaries not as competitive.

    Pros

    PTO, Healthcare, Some Good Coworkers

    Cons

    Poor Management, Unprofessional, Dysfunctional Organization, Micromangement, Arrogance is Rampant at the Akron Ohio Facility (nobodys trying to be somebodys), IT security was poor for a supposedly secure building with simulators, when I was hired - the Lockheed Corporate HR Recruiter in Orlando FLA stated she actually had thought they'd *closed* the Akron Facility years ago - that's how they think of the Akron Facility and its people in Orlando. I was glad when Boeing gave me an offer - it was lower, but the work environment is like night and day.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to do a deck to deck review of the Akron Facility. I realize now it was Lockheed's real Skunkworks ... because it's where they sent people who were problems or non-performers who they couldn't get rid of. Very dismal place for an otherwise proud company that appears prominently in American History.

    Very supportive of my goals, good salary, advancement opportunities

    Sometimes takes a while to move up. You can become pigeon holed.
