Pros

As a young professional, Lockheed Martin is a great place to work if you are passionate about manufacturing and engineering. Their leadership development programs offer employees the opportunity to have their graduate degree paid for and allows employees the opportunity to relocate on the company's dime.

Cons

On average, responsibility and salary increases tend to be on the slower side. Promotions are based on tenure rather than ability. With many layers in management and supporting roles, career advancement comes slowly. Switching companies often appears to be the best way to progress at this firm.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Loosen up the years of experience requirements for promotions. If young people are able to do a job and are anxious for more responsibility, give them the opportunity to prove themselves.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay. Decent benefits. Opportunities for growth and differentiation as long as you are willing to put in the work and time.

    Cons

    Change is slow, which is expected for a multinational company. Management is sometimes out of touch.Company wide policies may not be applicable or relevant in certain divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep employees in the loop. Having meetings and webcasts for broad ideas and changes is great, but it might be a good idea to give more granular updates on issues so employees and team members are not surprised at new developments.

    Also, if you want your employees to stay healthy please allow for some time during the work day to work out in the onsite gym. Asking them to stay healthy and then criticizing them for doing so during the day is counterproductive. Most people have families and taking care of things at home may not let them have dedicated gym time.
