    Great way to start my career - company really believes in its engineers and supports them.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Tons of leadership training, ability to transfer within the company, solid and clear path to promotion, especially at junior levels. Met some great managers and engineers. Strongly motivate leaders to mentor others and it is a team atmosphere, not competitive within. Definitely recommend, especially to young career folks or those who like the structure and stability of a large company. Plus the stock has been killing it lately in the market.

    Cons

    Federal budgets are declining and therefore LM budgets too - they have been tightening belt and doing layoffs. Not a fast pace of change. Depends on what work you do and what you're interested in, but I never really liked the whole "blowing stuff up" part of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IS&GS policy on telecommuters paying for their own travel took this high-pot outside the company.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The compensation was fantastic and benefits were good in terms of tuition, retirement, and health. You have to really take control of your own career and (obviously) work hard, continue to learn in your discipline, and network with others. You will have opportunity to work on very very interesting projects.

    Additionally, if you get involved with pursuit of research contracts and earn a few wins over time, you will be held in very high regard and asked to participate in a number of projects as people get to know that you do excellent work. This takes tremendous sustained effort, but, then again, anything worth doing in life is worth working hard to achieve.

    Cons

    very very process laden environment which I suppose is necessary for such a large organization to function effectively . There are a handful of less productive people who are very well socially connected and seem to advance because of this.

    Incentive to younger workers should be pursued. Younger workers leave after a few years 3-5.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pursue incentives for younger workers, something that will want them to stay longer. Create incubator startup environments so that those so inclined can pursue more high-risk high-reward projects.
