    I have been working at Lockheed Martin as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are countless employment opportunities with this reputable company and they have military contracts which is a great career transition for Service members.

    Cons

    As with any company, beware of the good old boy system. Sometimes it is more about who you know opposed to what you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek out young, talented professionals that bring ideas and motivation opposed to retired individuals that don't necessarily need a career

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    there is lots of room for advancement in the company, as there's lots of turnover and 're-orgs' constantly. for the most part, the people who work there are nice and mostly get along

    Cons

    unless you're a top performer, the pay can be lower than industry averages. they stick to corporate policies to determine salary instead of looking at employees individually. teams are segregated, and do not work well together all of the time (lots of finger pointing back and forth)
