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

Pros

There are a lot of experienced people willing to help out if needed. The nine-eighty schedule is great because you get every other Friday off.

Cons

Contractors are only allowed to be there fifteen months maximum. Internal job postings are not able to be viewed by contractors, otherwise there isn't much difference.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change the company policy limiting the length of time that contractors can be employed by making them sign a contract that they can never sue the company for benefits.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, variety of opportunities, online training system, free cisco test vouchers, free access to safari books and books 24x7, intramural sports and recreation.

    Cons

    Lots of middle management, many opportunities are in Washington dc, grooming employees to be less technical, work is linked directly to contracts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build products that lockheed can sell as their own rather than the government owning the IP and get away from work directly linked to products.

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

    Pros

    High technology, excellent reputation in the industry. Committed to providing excellent products. Full benefits.

    Cons

    Opportunities for useful training are non-existent; if you don't want to become a technical dinosaur, be prepared to get training on your own time and on your on dime. Raises are slim, and layoffs are getting more and more frequent. Work is cyclical due to defense spending. Meanwhile, the company is reporting record profits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a technical training budget and use it. Send people to training classes and workshops and seminars.
