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

    Pros

    The pay is okay. There really aren't many other pros that I can think of. They're a large company, and some people might like that.

    Cons

    There is zero opportunity for growth. The company is in decline and the senior management either don't care, or just want to squeeze every ounce of blood out of it before it dies. It won't go any time soon, mind you, but it will go.
    The amount of process that one has to go through to get ANYTHING done is nothing short of staggering. Process, schedule and cost come before anything else. While Lockheed hasn't been caught up in any recent ethics scandals, they apply very little ethics in how they treat their employees.
    They are not reinvesting any money in the company. At all. You can't even get them to buy a paperclip, never mind the proper equipment for the engineers to do their jobs.

    To sum it up: Poor management, no reinvestment, treating the employees like crap, no vision and management by process have brought a once great company to its knees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit. Just quit and let someone who actually knows something about the technology, and has some interest in coming out of the stone age take your place.

    Company that is a reflection of its main customer, the U.S. government

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

    Pros

    Moving away from male dominated old school management. (Though it took a scandal to remove and replace previous CEO.)

    Cons

    History of "good old boy management" to be changed. (Not unlike U.S. government.) Now moving towards new "good old gal network". Still not a company focused on being truly diverse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more proactive and committed towards developing diverse team for success. Required to broaden and grow business beyond servicing mainly U.S. military and government.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
