Pros

I enjoyed the weekly pay from Lockheed and the constant opportunity for change. Lots of interesting projects and locations for opportunities to move.

Cons

Not as much opportunity for cyber security as I would like.

Advice to Management

Do more to retain good employees.

    Pros

    There is an undeniable thrill at the thought of working for Lockheed Martin, one of the big folks in the space industry. The people are generally really good people. The company--depending upon WHICH division you work for--can treat their people poorly. They are very flexible for work hours which is wonderful and they don't generally micromanage, another major plus. But overall, within a small number of years working here, the life will be sucked out of you, as will your love and admiration of NASA.

    Cons

    Their salary rating is a joke. They have a comp ratio system. Let's say your pay range for your job title is 50,000 - 70,000. If you are making near the 50k, you 'compensation ratio' is low, so you'll get a raise every year, usually. If you are at 60k then you're at the middle of your pay range and your comp ratio is 1, therefore, unless you're absolutely effing spectacular, your raise is zero. So how is this the middle of the 'payrange' when you pretty much can't get past the halfway point. And that includes no cost of living increase so you actually end up making less...

    Advice to Management

    Every division has different benefits and if you're in one of the 'poor' companies, its very demoralizing. And the comp ratio brilliance is just flat out insulting.

    Pros

    The opportunity to do new things and learn is abundant. Colleagues in work group and throughout company are a pleasure with whom to work.

    Cons

    Job security fluctuates due to budget constraints. At times change becomes difficult due to long memories. Lots of employees waiting to retire.
