    Pros

    Back in the Cold War days, we made *lots* of influencing products - Often very innovative, highly integrated, and effective...

    Cons

    At some point along the way, processes & profits became "more" important than the product - Not bad if your a shareholder but the product cutting edge

    Advice to Management

    We used to put the products first and the processes and profits would fall into place - When you put profits and processes ahead of products, the products become mundane... Mundane products isn't what Lockheed was about....

  2. You may be worth more but we support the best contracts and supply the best technology

    Pros

    - This company is one of the most innovative and leads the world in defense weaponry and aerospace engineering.
    - Most promote the core values of strong leadership, respect for one another, and strong direction.
    - You will get as much responsibility as you are willing to take on.

    Cons

    - Some employees want to be impossible and will make your life impossible simply because they are miserable and unfortunately they are in a position to do so.
    - Not a strong work/life balance, finding myself working 70 to 80 hours per week.
    - This company will never admit that a schedule or budget is not possible so the work atmosphere tends to be high stress, with management always believing specific tasks and budgets are feasible when from the get go they were clearly not.
    - Non-technical management makes the Master Schedule and provides the budgets with usually very little engineering input which makes for way over-blown budgets and missed milestones.

    Advice to Management

    - Require more input from the engineers and technicians.
    - Ensure all employees are acting in accordance to the company's core values,
