Advice to ManagementAdvice

We're proud of where we work, but please apply policies consisentently across the corporation. Managers often say that benefits are optional for their groups to utilize which sends the wrong message to employees.

    Pros

    Lockheed Martin is well respected as a result of the advanced products they sell, the complex programs developed, and the engineering expertise of the engineers.

    Cons

    Requirements creep is not controlled, and when solutions become too expensive, Senior Management accepts contract cancellations without fighting for the jobs of the people affected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reevaluate the requirements to be promoted to a decent level within the company. Promotions should result from improving business performance and should not be based on nepotiism or gender.

    Pros

    Flex hours, plenty of vacation from the start. 401k with a good match, people are great to work with. Lots of extra benefits including gym reimbursements, discounts at local restaurants, and company intramural leagues. Yearly raises unless you are severely under performing.

    Cons

    Very hard to move around right now. Seems that high performers are punished and forced to stay on same projects because they are deemed valuable. Promotions are hard to get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to provide more opportunities for employees to move around, and I am not just talking about management here.
