I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Better than average compensation. The people who stay tend to stay for a very long time. Your experience depends on what business area/program you work for. HQ tends to be a little more modern while some of the other divisions might have mgmt. techniques that date back to the Mad Men era. Very tolerant of telecommuting- although it seems to be pulling back a bit on this recently. Most coworkers are competent, pleasant and good to work with- but again this could depend on which program you are on.

Cons

Company is not afraid to reorganize organizational structure and shuffle mgmt. I basically get a new boss and/or department every 18 months (or sooner). This does not allow for much workforce stability or long term strategic planning. Congressional budget issues and sequestration are a big concern and as a result, company has been downsizing across the board to cut costs. Just read the papers and you will see facilities are being closed and layoffs enacted.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance, professionalism, the people

    Cons

    Union policies are the main focus on pretty much any job, it is NOT a place for individual thinkers or outside of the box problem solvers. The pay is so-so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a great place to come if you want to advance by doing exactly what you are told to do. It is an OK workplace because I was fortunate enough to serve under competent leadership, but other than that it is pretty much like Office Space, when what they tell you you are getting in on boarding will be similar to Top Gun.
