    Pros

    Internal advancement is present and the benefits are great, unless you're retired military! This is a competitive company to work for!

    Cons

    Management's vision on capitalizing employee talent is weak in the IS&GS department. I get the feeling I'm in a gender/bias preference environment when it comes to promotion! That saying, "It's not what you know, but who you know."

    Advice to Management

    Take time to analyze training for your employees continued success in their duty roles. Initial orientation training will not make the cut for employee morale to build and become loyal to Lockheed Martin, amongst other issues!

    Pros

    Lockheed has great people, the environment is good for professional growth, and i love the city. Albuquerque and Kirtland AFB are great. The defense industry has been good to me and the people who work here are dedicated. I enjoy the company and the Air Force. Intelligence and engineering come together here and we work hard to deliver value to the war fighter. Together we can make dreams come true, so I enjoy coming to work every day. And the food is great also.

    Cons

    The cons of working for Lockheed Martin are that the company provides many people many things, and this leads to demand going up with too few people.

    Advice to Management

    pay more

    Pros

    Good benefits package and vacation time. Unlimited sick leave. Geographically diverse, transferring is easy assuming you are a performer.

    Cons

    Big company and individual performance can easily go unrecognized.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp the performance assessment system. Forcing corporate goals down into personal goals do not always make sense.

    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 Management

    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.

  10. Big and procedure-heavy

    Pros

    Some of the work will be interesting. Being a defense contractor, Lockheed Martin is involved in the high tech industry, including the development of hardware and software, that is in constant daily use by many of the largest government agencies sporting three letter acronyms. Contractor work on this level doesn't have quite the safety and job stability as outright government work, but it has more than you would find at a traditional civilian company. If you are technically inclined, and very detail oriented with a preference for hierarchical structures, defense contractors can be a good place to work, and many employees work for ten or more years before retiring or moving on.

    Cons

    The politics and the paperwork grind down many people. Most of the people have a military background, and so accept the environment to some extent, but there is also a wide recognition that the procedure oriented nature of the company and the back room politics compromise the central mission.

    Advice to Management

    Open up the system to allow for innovation.
