I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent management at all levels. The company really lives out its beliefs: Do What's Right, Respect Others, Perform with Excellence. There are many career paths to take within Lockheed and no one is limited to a single path. Management will work with employees to shape and guide careers. The company supports employees and allows flexible work schedules. CEO Marilyn Hewson is an outstanding communicator, and keeps in touch with the worker-bees. Overall, an excellent place to work.

Cons

In big companies a lot of emphasis is put on winning bids, and high-fives are given to teams that win. However, a lot good work is also done on a losing effort. Professionals work really hard even when they lose, and their effort should be recognized and high-fives passed around.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue the open communications with employees about what's going on in this huge company....especially during downsizing. This really help when times get tough.

    Pros

    Freedom to create a business area with your customers. You can garner the trust of leadership who will then let you run with it.

    Cons

    It's a big company so there is some beauracracy

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

    Pros

    Everyday benefits are above average. Many "extra" benefits such as reduced cell contracts, negotiated discounts with American automobile manufactures, huge discounts with rental car agencies and travel discounts to name just a few.

    Cons

    No different then any other job. I have been fortunate to work with a good number of great co-workers. I have only experienced a few that are difficult to work with and none of them were managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the recognition even at the lowest level. It doesn't have to be much, just a public thank you around their piers.
