A corporation in transition

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bethesda, MD

ProsLockheed Martin is strongly placed in the defense marketplace and has mostly weathered the budgetary changes well. The work is exciting and challenging. Opportunities to move within the corporation are there for those willing to do more legwork than a web search. Corporate negotiated discounts are available for employees on everything from cell phone service to vacations. Benefits are better than some, but worse than others. 401(k) match is nice to have.

ConsHuman resources is perhaps the primary reason for 9 out of 10 employees, that I have known, to leave the company. HR is given free reign over salaries and promotions and uses one measuring stick for a technical staff of around 50,000. It simply doesn't work. The processes and requirements are hidden and promotions are based on the feeling of HR rather than the experience provided to them by your direct supervisor.

Salaries are low; as is typical for the industry. Benefits are solid but have increased substantially every year for the last 5 either through increased premiums or increased deductibles and decreased coverage.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhat would happen if you spent more money on your employees? Would they produce more for you and your shareholders? What happens if you pay them the minimum HR thinks they can get away with? Will they want to stretch for you? This generation of employees is mobile and willing to change jobs for experiences, challenges and responsibility. If you don't show them they are valued, how many can you afford to lose as the rest of the technical population continues to age?
