I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good salary and benefits for salaried professional employees

Cons

Seriously bad management. The company is overweight with baby boomers and is actively practicing age discrimination.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not every one wants to work 50 hour weeks. You have kept profit margin high at the expense of burning out employees, many of which have no where to go in this economy.

    Former Employee - Procurement in Fort Worth, TX
    Former Employee - Procurement in Fort Worth, TX

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

    Pros

    competitive pay, large company, promote from within, line of work was very interesting, lots of resources available to you, large amount of vacation even in an entry level role

    Cons

    not the most innovative group of people, work closely with the government which allows for very little creativity, day-to-day actions were repetitive, very old workforce that doesn't always take suggestions from college grads

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that your employees are challenged in their work as opposed to a repetitive role.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities to work on leading edge technology. Lots of openings for specific military skill sets if you are a veteran. Looks good on resume if you want to go work for another defense contractor.

    Cons

    If you are not in a technical or engineering type of position then pay raises are very slim or non existentent. Job dependent on the contract you are working on. If the contract ends then you are out of a job. Tough to get re-assigned or find a similiar position in another division and no relocation if you are not high enough on the food chain.
