Nepotism at its finest

Current Employee - Program Manager  in  Moorestown, NJ
Current Employee - Program Manager in Moorestown, NJ

Pros

The salaries are phenomenal. It's the only way they get people to stay there, because they are all miserable otherwise.

Cons

Not a very family oriented company. They favor ex-military, and if you work there, you can get your entire family in the door easily. Also, once you're hired your performance doesn't matter because they never fire. Because of that, those who are hard workers suffer. SI&T , Training and Technical Documentation, and Security (IT) are the worst departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Feedback will not be taken, as turnover in leadership never happens, and it's so political, no one ever gets fired.

    Pros

    LM provides technically challenging work and has a lot of opportunity for an individual right out of college to begin a career.

    Cons

    Each business area operates seperately with its own culture. Transfering between business areas can be a disappointing process for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote based on technical and leadership skills. Ensure that exceptional employees do not get discarded during the frequent reduction in forces.

    Barely organized chaos straining against insurmountable inertia

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Edwards AFB, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Edwards AFB, CA

    Pros

    The pay rate is good. The products you are working on are cool and usually important to the national defense.

    Cons

    Work / Life balance is a joke. Lots of "old dogs" coasting towards retirement jealously guarding their small little patch of knowledge / authority. Your job is subject to whim of politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forget the "average salary" survey garbage. Quality talent costs. And a major effort should go into making sure everyone remembers no all employees work at company owned campus and may have to deal with extraordinary challenges just to get to work everyday.
