I worked at Lockheed Martin

Pros

Large corporation with divisions throughout the U.S.

Cons

Departments within each division can be "tribal" .... in other words if you do not have close ties within the organization or senior leader as a sponsor ... you will not get too far.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Can't grow a business by getting smaller.

Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great company for incoming college hires. You get to build your resume and experience (again, only if you're early in your career)

    Cons

    Lots of politics with upper management. VERY hard to get promoted. You basically have to threaten to leave the company in order for someone to consider you for a promotion to keep you. Lots of cuts happening across the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your engineers better.

    I really wanted to love this place but policies that promote mediocre work kill it.

    Pros

    There are opportunities to work on some awesome missions.
    Work/life balance is great for many positions.
    9/80 work week, get every other Friday off!

    Cons

    Company policies affecting performance reviews, merit increases, promotions, and compensation remove all incentive to excel and try to move up quickly. High performers aren't really differentiated from average performers.
    It takes forever to move up - every coworker, high contributors included, has been promoted years after it was deserved due to HR policies. Your title doesn't reflect your actual level of competency or responsibility.
    Engineering salaries are lower than SF Bay Area averages, and almost no one receives profit sharing.
    Lots of ancient technologies & policies everywhere.
    Multi-disciplinary technical teams often require software engineers to come in at unnecessarily early hours.
