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 Management

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.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedules due to budget cuts on programs who could not afford office space

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, no upward mobility, politics in leadership

    Advice to Management

    Train the diamond's in the rough to be great leaders and adhere to the succession plans in place. Obtain leaders who create and train upcoming leaders and eliminate hiring friend's but hire the best candidate qualified for the job that is skilled to perform the role in full to help shape the future.

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

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are very good, people are professional, intelligent, educated and try to do a great job. Ethics are important to the company and therefore, to the employees. Upward mobility is possible if you learn the Lockheed way, work hard, perform above expectations and work on high profile projects--where management pays attention.

    Cons

    The company is so large that they need lots of policies and procedures and metrics to manage the place. Sometimes metrics are one-size fits all, even when the metrics don't apply to the work you're doing. It is a very large company and is difficult to get recognized if you're doing routine, mundane work.

    Advice to Management

    Balance between metrics and judgment when assessing the employee's performance is necessary. Metrics cannot account for all the work done by a buyer.
