    Lockheed Martin, TSI - old style, heavy handed, uncaring, demoralizing management

    Pros

    The coworkers with whom you must suffer through become your comrades in the struggle to get through the next day.

    Cons

    Managers are out of touch with their staff and they refuse to hire people with the skills to actually manage people correctly. It's an "old boy network" and if you don't fit, don't expect to get anywhere. And if you make any sort of wave, get ready to be punished until you are so demoralized and crushed you leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gut the old, dug-in ticks out there and replace them with new managers with new, more enlightened and advanced training in how to manage people in the 21st century. Managers should help their subordinates reach their career and life goals by structuring tasks to assist them. You should get rid of the managers who never take responsibility for the problems they cause and who know all about finding the next scapegoat to cover their mistakes.
