    Don't expect to be rewarded with promotions even if you are an outstanding employee.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Relatively stable job. It's a good place to get experience before you find a better paying job elsewhere. The programs are exciting.

    Cons

    The promotion system is broken and they are top heavy. They say they pay for performance. What they actual mean is that they pay you for your years of service and performance. It is very frustrating when you do twice the work of the person sitting next to you yet they make twice as much as you do just because they have been there longer. They will not consider you for promotions unless you have been working your current job for a certain number of years even if you are a rockstar employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix LM Commit, the promotion process, and job salary levels for non-engineers and you might have better retention for younger employees who are leaving for better pay.

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

    Pros

    Big company. Decent benefits. Local management will look out for you as best they can. Most people are friendly. Networking opportunities if you're in to that.

    Cons

    Its government contracting. Basically contracts come and go. Lockheed bids on government contracts and either wins over or loses out to competition. Contracts usually last a few years. Budgets fluctuate, political situations and relationships crop up, etc. In ~4 years, I jumped between 8 different EPA programs in order to keep busy. The local office was in decline. Lay offs will happen. You must also keep track of all your time across all contracts which can get annoying and is subject to being audited internally as we as by government reps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push tech and leadership training. Especially on your younger hires.
