Current Employee - Security Administration in Lexington Park, MD

Pros

Offices all over the world, travel possibilities
Work with great people
Promotions
Support our military in many different way

Cons

The don't really care about their employees.
When they lost a contract instead of keeping people they employed for years they dropped them instead of bring them onto current or opening contracts.
Upper management was never there to help.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go in with open eyes when it comes to contracts with the government. Lockheed doesn't care about you.

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

    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.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer  in  Sunnyvale, CA
    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

    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.
