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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Seemingly the most common reason for people working at Lockheed and continuing to stay there is "the money". I guess you get the pro's of such huge scale in terms of good food for lunch, etc..

    Cons

    They pay you well to buy your conscience. Any ethical issues you might have working there will be outweighed by however much they pay you I guess. Also, it was very political working there. Stepping on people, fake friendships, the works. Most of all, it felt very cold and impersonal.

    Advice to Management

    Smile. Ask me about something other than work. It does wonders for morale.

    Worst company I've worked for. All employees are seeking jobs elsewhere and they haven't been in charge 90 days.

    Pros

    There are none other than having a job, if that's what you want to call it.

    Cons

    Greedy management. Wanting to cut mechanics so multiple site leads can keep their jobs. Absolutely no contribution to employee health care leaving premiums of over $1,400 a month for employees. Allowing "created" jobs from good ole boy system to stay drawing high salaries to continue. No opportunity for advancement, regardless of education or experience. Leads and below are dropping like flies. Continues to force impossible timeline standards by intimidation of layoffs. They cut mechanics, cut timelines, and are wanting to accomplish more work in less time to "save costs" but still have three site supervisors collecting over $100,000 a year and numerous "management" positions with undefined roles collecting over $36 an hour. Good luck getting these people to fix your airplanes. This contract was looked at completely wrong and it's going downhill fast.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that this mission is accomplished by the personnel who actually turn the wrenches, not by the ones sitting in offices all day. It is really hard to keep employees enthusiastic about work when they're constantly being told that there are plenty of people outside the gate that want our jobs.
