Good company lacking qualified management

Security Representative (Current Employee) Edwards AFB, CA

ProsBenefits have been great but are slowly phasing out

ConsIt may be the undesirable location but the Palmdale and Edwards locations are seriously lacking in qualified management. The annual performance assessment has changed its method of evaluating employees to where we are measured in groups according to our job level. So throw yourself into a pot of 200 people and someone who doesn't work at your location will determine if you have met your commitments and you earn points. No matter how hard you work, as long as your commitments are satisfied on paper you will be recorded as Average. There is very little incentive or possibility of advancement. Annual raises have shrunk. The whole process is flawed making your chance for advancement a rare occasion, you're just a number now.

Advice to Senior ManagementRe-think the assessment process. Overachievers lose their focus when they are viewed as average on paper and only get minimal raises. Nobody wins. Managers and Senior Mgrs. L5 & L6 should be evaluated more strictly. How well they know their employees and grasp the whole picture of their organization should be evaluated. Discontinue the requirement for ALL leaders to attend your long term management courses...they aren't effective. Leaders should be required to spend 4 + years in college, or have many years experience leading successfully or they shouldn't be in lead positions. Most people can't lead or manage and that is the truth.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Living in the Past

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Good benefits, decent hours if not forced to work unpaid… Cons: Senior Management that is trying to hold on to past glories in a defense industry turned upside down by falling defense spending.
