Current Employee - Senior Manager in Denver, CO
Current Employee - Senior Manager in Denver, CO

I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good environment to work. Professionals at all levels. Benefits are competitive and generally it is a good place to be. Good long term place to be with a decent retirement. Average with the current benefits.

Cons

Not competitive. Poorly organized. Not cost effective. Good at huge programs but not flexible enough to compete in the new environment of smaller budgets and shifting requirements.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the big changes that you need to compete. What got you here won't get you any further. Major changes need to happen.

    Made a lot of money and worked unlimited hours, but was locked up in a cubicle for most of the year.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pay is great and they didn't seem to have an issue with me racking up hours throughout each project.

    Cons

    This place will work you to death if you let them. And the workplace environment is quite depressing. Locked up in a cubicle all day. Workdays usually lasted beyond the traditional 8 hours a day. Worked with a lead editor that was not fit to be leading in anything. He was quite unprofessional in his demeanor and displayed passive aggressive attitude throughout the time that I worked with him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps, the mgmt should focus on who is logging hours and how many hours are being logged. They allowed people to work overnight on projects and one of my projects was erased in the final hours before proposal submittal by a person that had been allowed to work over 24 hours straight.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Started out with solid benefits, competitive pay, chance to take on exciting/challenging problems (no shortage of ownership/responsibilities for those looking to excel).

    Cons

    Highly influenced by government politics with diminishing customer diversity. Though current Corporate/Space Systems executive leadership have 100+ collective years of experience at LM, they seem ill-prepared to navigate changing financial, political, and technical environment (ex. Commercial Ventures effort seems like a feeble attempt to breathe new life into the business). Simply put, LM Space Systems has fallen out of favor. What is particularly frustrating is the lack of transparency between executive leadership and workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest $$$ in R&D to keep company afloat. Commercial Ventures IR&Ds are too little/too late. Figure out clear roles responsibilities among 3 major Space Systems Facilities and communicate that "down". For that matter - ditch the dead weight and pyramid shaped hierarchy; see NetApp for examples on culture, communication, & and structure.
