Cons

-inconsistent use of telecommuting and other general flex time and work life balance benefits -Old school -highly resistent to change -poor use of performance management -60s era desks and drab surroundings

Advice to Management

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

    At Lockheed Martin (at least the contract I was on) you'll get a decent salary, consistant (but small) raises, a security clearance, and a very good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Staying at Lockheed for too long would only make you really valuable to other large defense contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Accept that with Software Development that engineers are not interchangeable just because you have a process. To attract top talent you must keep up with the times in your methodologies and technology.

    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 Management

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