Mostly decent jobs, but constantly at risk because of uncertainty of government funding.

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

Pros

Can be interesting work. There is a flexible work schedule and the ability to work remotely, if the position allows it. There are lots of talented people to work with.

Cons

The performance evaluation system is flawed and allows incompetent people to benefit while talented reliable employees don't get the recognition that they deserve. There is some "empire building" by certain managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Middle management seems to have more focus on its own success rather than the long-term success of the company and the individual contributors that make that company success possible.

    Former Intern - Intern in Manassas, VA

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

    Pros

    Solid work load, some very bright people are at Lockheed. Also, people were very friendly and willing to help.

    Seemed to have very good work/life balance, lots of families and there did not appear to be many issues with that.

    Cons

    Sonar isn't the most interesting thing in the world, and some of the practices used at Lockheed are very antiquated.

    Seemed a bit disorganized for interns, not always something to do, and needed to actively seek out work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just have the motto you're seeking top level talent, actively go out and get it. People coming out of school aren't going to be wow'ed by a defense contractor with all the options that are out there, so paying more as a base would certainly help persuade.
