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

Pros

- matching 401k: they match 50% of the first 8% you contribute
- flexible schedule, work from home may be available (but it's getting more difficult to get approved)
- usually okay with 40.0 hours/week

Cons

It doesn't matter how good you are as a developer - years of experience are HEAVILY weighted. Talented 25 year olds can out-code a developer making twice their salary

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow managers to give bonuses, and to fast-track young developers to senior developer level.

    Pros

    LM provides opportunities to work on large-scale complex projects of national importance. Employees are encouraged to take advantage of training opportunities. Most employees are highly qualified. This organization offers different career advancement paths depending on interests/qualifications (e.g. scientists, engineers, MBAs).

    Cons

    Annual reviews require managers to identify a specific percentage of employees as poor performers (even if they estimate that some individuals do not deserve to be categorized as such...)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Careful hiring, training and leadership prevents employees from performing poorly. Employee performance should be driven by their performance (...), not a theoretical distribution.
