No opinion of CEO

I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

As a software engineer right out of school, you'll likely look like a rockstar and feel like a rockstar and be rewarded as a rockstar

Cons

You probably won't be doing anything related to broader software engineering industry and practices.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good company, flex time, three weeks vacation from day one, good benefits over all.

    Cons

    Depends on the group you are in, but some big programs just go though people, use them and throw them away then they are done. Hard to get promoted, more based on who you know and who your mentor is then how hard you worked. Work life balance none existant. Lost allot of great folks mainly over this.

    Advice to Management

    People have lives outside their job!

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Occasionally working with cutting edge hardware. Autonomy to do the work you need to get done. Travel to unique places

    Cons

    Suffocating process, extremely dated corporate culture. Projects drag on for years. Software is often blamed for cost overruns Most things you work on are extremely old (C / ADA). Most people have a pension and are just trying to not get laid off before they hit their magic years of service. Huge compensation rift between pensioners and non-pensioners.

    Advice to Management

    Hold yourselves accountable for failures. Despite multiple failures the same people continue to climb the ladder
