    Pros

    The employees at LM are very talented and dedicated to meeting customer needs. LM also has very good compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    LM has a very hierarchical management structure that does not empower employees and take advantage of their talent. I also found managers to be more focused on managing up rather than taking care of their people. The company is too focused on technical skills and not enough on program/project management skills resulting in customer dissatisfaction with cost and schedule performance of programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage more with employees and empower them in decision-making
