    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There are many opportunities for advancement. Pay and benefits are adequate by today’s standards. Having spent double digit years employed there I have seen the good the bad and the ugly.

    Cons

    Nepotism and the good ol’boy system are firmly entrenched at least at the Fort Worth Division. I’m speaking about the salaried employees only. I was salaried while I was there but I could never get it thru my thick skull that to get ahead at Lockheed you can’t waste your time building aircraft. To get ahead you have to work for yourself and network with all the right people. Lockheed will still pay you just like you were contributing to building the product. Fortunately there are enough honest hard working employees that still have good work ethics to build some very fine aircraft.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Patting each other on the back all day is not what builds aircraft.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 5 years

    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
