    I have been working at Lockheed Martin as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked at BAE and General Dynamics, among others and I've learned and accomplished the most working at Lockheed in Dallas. Great company, great culture, and most directs are willing to help whenever questions arise. As with anything in life, you get out what you put in. If you want to learn from some brilliant minds and discuss ideas and expand your knowledge, you want to work here.

    Cons

    As a contractor, you can get stuck working boring assignments that nobody wants to do, but that's the nature of the beast. When they hand you another stack of redlines or drawing changes, just take a deep breath and know if you do them well, they will notice and maybe give you additional responsibilities if you're interested. I have designed some things contractors normally would never get to do. All while getting paid 1.5x for OT, so work hard and be rewarded!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of DCR, the contract house that you use exclusively. They're beyond terrible. Ask any contractor that works for them. Also, get rid of the 1 year rule for contractors. It discourages continuity within the programs and makes it difficult on the contractor AND the directs who have to train and get another contractor up to speed which decreases output and hurts the bottom line.

    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.
