I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Large company typically meaning there is 'some' work available. Good benefits, flexible time. Good emphasis on ethics, safety.

Cons

Easy to get lost and there are fewer and fewer higher positions. Managers make up majority of your work experience (mine is great, but can be so-so). Things happen slowly due to all the processes, and the regular employees have little say once something has been mandated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep looking forward - the companies big coffers could spur great innovation (and profits) for 20 years to come, not just next quarters stock prices.

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

    Pros

    Always leading edge, good pay and benifits, (so far) Lots of supportive co-workers.

    Cons

    LM is a great place to work, provided you dont get into a positon where you dont work directly for your manager. LM is a matrix org. so you can have a functional manager (approves time card, performs reviews, etc) but work for a different project manager. This can lead to a situation where the person who really cares cant do anything for you. Executive Leadership does seem to be more concerned with stock price than employee moral sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that the people that work for you are not forgotten about, make sure that all levels of management are effective to the folks that report to them.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    Its a big company - it can absorb bad years better than other smaller companies. They work hard to keep good employees. I've been very impressed with the quality of the management. Lockheed does a lot of cool stuff.

    Cons

    Business has been in a slump the last few years and there are much fewer opportunities for lateral or upward movement. Compensation is average at best. Lockheed is made up of several business groups, and all are not equal with compensation. (some get bonuses, more PTO, etc.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You've got to treat your good long-term employees better, don't just focus on the new hires.
