I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The salaries are good and, depending, what skill sets you have, there is room to grow and opportunities to move around locations.

Cons

A minimum work week is 45 hours (only paid up to 40) but you are generally expected to work closer to 50 or 60. The politics are intense and career progression is largely dependent on making good connections up chain.
As long as you are willing to make the company priority number 1 and can network successfully, I would recommend LM.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Actually follow through on trying to balance work load and allow employees more work-life balance. Despite many tools and company resources, many employees struggle with expectations, high stress and access to the right tools to be successful.

    Company great overall but not “racially neutral" there is a racial undertone when it comes to employees.

    A decent experience

    Current Intern - Software Engineer

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin as an intern

    Pros

    Can get exposed to some cool projects/programs. The work environment was not too difficult. Employees are willing to help you if you ask for help. Became familiar with Configuration Management and coding standards. Exposed to some cool technology.

    Cons

    As an intern, tasks got a little repetitive. Didn't get to work on some of the more "engaging" tasks. Cafeteria food is repetitive and not that great. Not a fan of the business casual dress code.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let interns work on some of the more "engaging" projects.
