Great company to work for... but modernization needed!

I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent benefits, employees come from a number of disciplines and industries. Company pays attention and cares about improving safety record and complying with environmental standards.

Cons

Government bureaucracy gets in the way of modernizing systems (i.e. using excel as opposed to databasing). Information sharing not practiced amongst many of the older employees (wanting to keep their jobs, I suppose!!!).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look toward the younger, incoming employees... the new talent has some great suggestions for improving the current systems in place at Lockheed!

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Baltimore, MD

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

    Pros

    there is lots of room for advancement in the company, as there's lots of turnover and 're-orgs' constantly. for the most part, the people who work there are nice and mostly get along

    Cons

    unless you're a top performer, the pay can be lower than industry averages. they stick to corporate policies to determine salary instead of looking at employees individually. teams are segregated, and do not work well together all of the time (lots of finger pointing back and forth)
